[Data Studio - Potential Bug] - Google Analytics segments causing visibility issues

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

When a segment is applied in the Data Studio report it's causing analytics-related widgets to come back with an error - 


Request failed. Please refresh the page to regenerate the report.

Error ID: 79f0dac8


Is this a bug?  Or is there a setting I'm potentially missing?  I was using segments two weeks ago and the reports appeared just fine.  


What the report appears as -

When the segment is removed, it appears just fine.  I've tested this with multiple analytics accounts in multiple logins and I'm still seeing the same results.  The only time I do see the data is when editing the report or specifically logged into the owner's account in view mode.  The shared link (with full permissions & logged out of the owning account) generates the issue shown in the image above.


Any assistance or news is appreciated.
