"Couldn't Load the data for this visual" with storage mode as mixed.

Hi MS Power BI Community,


Thanks in advance.

We are actually migrating from storage mode "direct query" to "mixed" (Because storage mode "direct query" is bit slow).

Because of the huge number of rows in some of the tables we are not able to import them. And hence the mixed mode.

The storage mode "mixed" was working fine until we published them into our workspace.

The visuals which uses tables that are direct query are failing in our workspace with the below error.



The one with the storage mode as "direct query" is still running fine in our workspace. we are facing problem only with storage mode as mixed.

Any help us in this regard to resolve the error "Couldn't Load the data for this visual" will be greatly appriciated.

Hi @avinaash ,


This is a limitation by design:

Build permissions are required to view reports built using this feature when one or more datasets in the chain are in Pro workspaces. If the creator a report has left the company or their Build permissions has been revoked since they created the report, Build permissions will also be required on all datasets in the chain.

Documentation is below:

Using DirectQuery for datasets and Analysis Services (preview) - Power BI | Microsoft Learn


Users must have Build permissions to view reports correctly.

You can assign the permission here: Click the Manage permissions


You need to add the permission in the Direct access not the links.



Hope this helps you.
