Accessing data across accounts

Generally, data should be configured and accessed within the same account. In other words, when building reports, try to have your datasets configured in the same places. There are exceptions to this, such as public data that is made available to all accounts as well as any data you’ve shared with the public.

Private data (data that you have not shared outside your organization) can still be accessed across accounts but will not show up in the data studio menus by default.

The system may deny access or prompt you to confirm your intent before allowing data to be accessed when viewed through a report that was created within a different account or organization.
