Extracting Report Level measures DAX using SQL Profiler output

In the May 2017 release of Power BI Desktop a new ‘report measures’ feature was released. It allows users who have connected Power BI Desktop to an external Analysis Services tabular model to write their own measures using DAX. These measures are stored within the report, and sent in the queries back to the underlying model. Any user who has access to query the model can do this – just the same as if they were using Excel or SQL Management Studio to connect to the SSAS server.
