Users can only see asset previews if the following conditions are met:

  • They have the necessary permissions in both Microsoft Power BI and Atlan.

Therefore, if a user lacks the permission to view a report in Microsoft Power BI, they will not be able to see the report preview in Atlan. Even if they do have the necessary permissions, they will need to be logged into Microsoft Power BI on the same browser as their Atlan instance for asset previews to work.

Why can I not see previews for my Microsoft Power BI assets?

If you have run the workflow and still do not see the previews, we suggest you rerun the workflow. Once you've rerun the workflow, the previews should be visible to all eligible users.

How does Atlan calculate views for Microsoft Power BI reports and dashboards?

Atlan calculates Usage views based on the number of times users open a report or dashboard in Microsoft Power BI.
