How to force PowerApps to synchronize permission with PowerBI

I have an app with PowerBI controls, the problem is that some users cannot see the data in those controls.
All users have PowerBI Pro, and all of them can correctly see data directly in the dashboard in PowerBI. The same tiles that are shown in the dashboard are the ones that are shown in the controls in PowerApps. So I don't understand why some users can only see the data in the dashboard but not in the app. I imagine it could be something related to permissions that are not updated internally in PowerApps, so is there a way to force the permissions to be updated? I have days with this error and I don't find any solution. Some hours ago a user that previously didn't see data in the app was able to see the data and it is working well for him now, but other users still can't see the data, and I didn't do any change so I don't understand why it works for some and not for others.

Re: How to force PowerApps to synchronize permission with PowerBI

The solution is to add the users as members in the workspace in PowerBI. I write it here because it could be helpful for someone as this detail is not specified anywhere on the documentation.

Re: How to force PowerApps to synchronize permission with PowerBI

Hi @nanci ,

Do you want to change/synchronize  permission of powerbi in PowerApps?

Currently it’s not supported in PowerApps.

If you really needto realize this feature, then I suggest you expressing on PowerApps Ideas Forum. Your precious advice will be very helpful for our work.

For now, the PowerBi connector's function is very limited.

Here's the only action that is supported now:

Add rows to a dataset

Please try to clear your browser's cache and update the browser to the latest version.

And wait for a moment.

Maybe this will help synchronize permission with PowerBI.
