"From external orgs" tab missing for some (not all) external users

Hi,

 

I am sharing a workspace with all related content to external users from 2 organisations. They have all been invited with the same rights/permissions as guest users to my Azure Active Directory, and have been added with the same role to the power bi workspace.

People from org 1 can all see the related content when they log in through the "from external orgs" tab. But people from org 2 cannot see this tab, and I am totally clueless why. They are in the same cloud (azure global), and as far as i know that is the only thing that could be an issue. When i share a link to a report they can access the content just fine.

 

Are there any settings they can check in their own organisation settings (in azure)? Or can the problem lie with the type of power bi license perhaps?

 

Thanks in advance for the help!

Hi ,  @Tamerlaaane 

According to your description, you said that "from external orgs" tab missing .

 As seaeched , Power BI users who are guest users in any other tenant will now see a new tab on their home page (in their home tenant) called From external orgs.

And you said that you have invited them as guest user , you can try to check the user's status if Accepted .

And you can also give the user this content's url to view if it has some problem.

You can see if there is a limitation for this:

And for more information, you can refer to :

If the tab "From external orgs" still missing for all the users that already been invited to some external tenants and been shared datasets, this may due to the "Private link" feature is enabled for the user's tenant, based on my query internal, this may also lead to the missing of the tab "From external orgs" :

Thank you for your time and sharing, and thank you for your support and understanding of PowerBI!

Hi v-yueyunzh-msft,

 

Thanks for the response! The users did Accept the invite, and since people from another tenant can see the "external orgs" tab, the "Private Links" setting might be the culprit here. I will have to check with their admin, so it can take a while before I can confirm this as the Solution. Thanks for now!

Hi Tamerlaaane

 

Did you verify what was inhibiting some users from seeing "external orgs"?

Sadly, I did not find the source of the problem. As a workaround, I built a Power BI App where all shared content was hosted in, and I shared the link with everyone that needed it.
