download pbix from power bi service

hi,

after creating a report from pbi desktop, i published it (together with the dataset) to pbi service. subsequently, i created another pbix (let's call it "pbix-02" file) that uses the dataset of the original pbix to create few more reports (let's call it "report-123" & "report-789") using the dataset on pbi service.

i'm now trying to download pbix from "report-123" & "report-789" now in pbi service but i'm seeing a greyed-out option as shown in the image below-

kindly advise on how to allow the download. i'm not sure if i should re-upload the "pbix-2" file as i'm afraid the upload may overwrite/delete the new "report-123" & "report-789" that were created/designed in pbi service.

 

many tks in advance.

Hi  @Anonymous  ,

There are several restrictions on downloading pbix:

  1. The administrator must enable this function for the tenant, which exists in export data of tenant setting in admin portal.
  2. To download pbix, you must have edit permission to the report.
  3. The dataset cannot be refreshed incrementally.
  4. The dataset cannot be modified using xmla endpoint.
  5. The report you want to download cannot be based on another workspace.
  6. With the latest version of desktop, you may not be able to open the downloaded. Pbix file in a non current version of power Bi desktop.
  7. Unable to download dataset enabled for large model to pbix file.

 

If you upload the "pbix-2" file again, the new "report-123" and "report-789" created / designed in the PBI service will not be overwritten / deleted. To ensure that the names are different, if the names are the same, they will be overwritten.
