New Idea

We have a Dashboard this is in the old Azure Power BI Embeded enviroment. Withint the last 24 hours visuals that were working now come up with the error message - Can't display the visual. See Details. This is one various but not all Table and Map visuals and had not been an issue previously. We are using Dynamic Row Level Security which if turned off the visual works fine so it is obviously connected to Row Level Security. The details of the error message are -

 

Couldn't load the data for this visual
 
Couldn't retrieve the data for this visual. Please try again later.
Please try again later or contact support. If you contact support, please provide these details.

 

Nothing has changed with the Dasboard and it was working last week. Has somthing chaged with Azure Embeded Dynamic Row Level security?

 

We have an issue that our PBI file works fine but when row level security is turned on we get error messages. 

 

We have tracked it down to a caculate measure. When row level security is off this measure works fine  - 

 

CALCULATE (sum(UnitSalesValues[Sale Values]), 'UnitSalesValues'[Attribute]= "Sold prior to qtr" )

 

When row level security is turned on this measure creates the following error is the visual. If the bolded part is taken out the measure works fine. 

 

Colukn't load the data for the visal

An unexpected exception occured. 

 

This same file was working with last months version of PBI. The data in UnitSalesValues is visable with the row level security turned on and has values for "sold prior to qtr". 

 

However, even if we use last months pbix file it does not work in the PBI Embeded enviroment. 

 

This certainly seems to be an error in PBI. Further when the row level security is first turned on a black screen apears and the following program is run. 

 

c:\Program Files\Microsoft Power BI Desktop\bin\SQLDUMPER.EXE

 

 

I am struggling to get a pubnub stream working . I have data and can see it from a HTTP request in my chrome

 

http://pubsub.pubnub.com/history/sub-c-e*******/test/0/10

 

[[{"Customer":"AAAAA555555","Value":98.6,"Orders":98.6}],[{"Customer":"AAAAA555556","Value":98.6,"Orders":98.6}]]

 

 

but when I try and add this data stream as a streaming data set , I get the error ...

 

 "We didn't detect any data in the channel. Please ensure that the info you entered on the previous screen is correct. If so, provide info for the dataset on this screen".

 

and the fields are not brought in which is what happens when I link to a sample. Is there something else that is required 

 

 

After July 2017 service update, the configuration done for Smart filter got replaced by default settings in PowerBI service. Changes and format done for smart filter has been gone, it is affecting all our reports.

 

Behaviour of the filter has also been changed,

 

1. On selection of drop down list, two filters get opened parallely.  To close the list we have to click the drop down list again

2. On setting of "Send to back", while clicking drop down list is going behind the visual before selecting the values

3. On setting of "Bring to front", it will hide other visual behind no transperncy was there.

Could you please check the bug at the earliest??

Status: Accepted

I have been trying to roll out Power BI to my organisation (it is a rather large organisation with many users all over the country) whilst our Central IT department is working through upgrading us to Power BI Premium and I have discovered a bug that the Microsoft Customer Service person who is helping me claims is by design.

 

Bug that was discovered: When I share a report via a dashboard to a new Power BI user (doesn't already have a Pro Licenses) and the user signs up for a Pro Trial to see my report, I need to cancel the invite and resend it.

 

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a report and publish it to a group
  2. Create a dashboard for the report and share it with a user who is not a Pro user yet
  3. Have your user sign up for the Power BI Pro Trial
  4. User will get "Sorry, we couldn't find that report" error

 

The workaround:

  1. After your user signs up for a Power BI Pro Trial (step 3 in the above), go to your dashboard and click "Cancel Invite"
  2. Resend the invite to your user

 

This works, however, it is a bug and it is creating a lot of extra work for the people who are producing / sharing reports as well as frustrations from our end users.

 

If you could fix this or assure that this will be fixed when we move to Premium, that would be really helpful in getting our users to adapt to Power BI as their new reporting tool.

 

Thank you,

-Winnie

In desktop and embedded the tooltip when hovering over a field in table or matrix is persistent.

When the report is published to .com the tip fades after 5 seconds.

 

Its particularly useful on wrapped text fields in the table to have the popup tip persist so the text can be read.

 

Can behaviour be made consistent, preferably permanent until focus changes, ideally configurable.

 

thanks

Greetings, 

 

I'm having trouble loading my report measures when using DirectQuery for SAP BW on Power BI cloud service.
Here is the error message:

"Couldn't load the data for this visual

 
MdxScript(Model) (5, 42) Cannot find data source '' in function 'EXTERNALEXPRESSION'.
Please try again later or contact support. If you contact support, please provide these details.

Correlation ID0c939e55-b820-03e1-3024-c14d1d51cb13
Version13.0.1781.239"

Some facts: 

- I'm loading dimensions and measures (key figures) from Bex Query perfectly well in Power BI Desktop;

- The issue happens only with Measures on the Power Bi Service after publishing the report;

- Dimensions and Hierarchies are loading seamlessly on Power BI service;  
- The Data Gateway is up and running;
- I've tried to convert the measures into currency format but to no avail;

"Send a Frown (Error)" is not available in the error message window to report the technical issue;

Has anyone run into the same problem using DirectQuery (beta) and Data Gateway connecting to a Bex Query? (SAP BW)

Thanks!

Timeline slicer including extra day

Hey folks,

Just noticed that the Timeline Slicer is for some reason including the first day of the next period...is this the expected behavior? This seems to be happening for all of the granularities. I'm using the latest version available on the Store: 1.3.21

 

Example 1: Selecting a single day, but a simple table view of data shows two days:

Example 2: Similar issue when selecting a single week: Two sundays included:

Hi all,

 

I have a client who is on the latest release of Power Bi Desktop (v 2.46.4732.721), although this issue also occurs on the previous version (2.46.4732.581). When they create a new measure on top of a live tabular model connection and set the formatting, the formatting only persists for that Power BI Desktop session. When they save the file and close and reopen, the formatting reverts back to the default, which is especially unreadable for percentages and currency. Is this fixable? Thanks!

We  can use the new matrix visual which provide drill down  with the March 2017 through June 2017 releases of Power BI Desktop. I created one report with these visuals in Power BI Desktop and  can open it with Power BI Desktop RS(June). Unfortunetely, when ı try open deployed report in Power BI Report Server matrix visuals appears as blank visuals. Besides Power BI Desktop  RS hasn't preview features in options  so ıt doesn't support new matrix visuals and default matrix is not new version.  As far as ı know , Reporting Server will upgrade quarterly .When will Power BI Desktop RS support these visuals?Visual in Power BI Desktop RSVisual in Power BI Desktop RSVisual deployed in Power BI Report ServerVisual deployed in Power BI Report Server

Dashboard sharing Disabled for non-PRO users ?

Status: Delivered
by djnww Established Member ‎04-27-2017 05:28 AM - edited ‎04-27-2017 05:34 AM

We can no longer share a dashboard with users from our own workspace. I received the message:

"This dashboard contains Power BI Pro content. Only users that have Power BI Pro will have access to it"

 

I confirmed my fears by publishing the simplest of reports which is 100% non-pro content. There have been a few other mentions of it on the forum in the past couple of hours, but I thought I'd create an official post. 

 

1st sharing was disabled from Group Workspaces to non-pro users. Surely Microsoft has accidentally disabled ALL sharing for non-pro users ? If not, you can imagine the uproar.

 

Is anybody else facing the same problem ? 

 

Power BI clearly states that we are able to share personal dashboards with non-pro users.

In the July release we got the option to rename fields per visual (which is really great!!) :

 

 

However, when using a SSAS Tabular live connection, the rename option doesn't appear when the field is a in a hierarchy:

We utilize out-of-tenant shared dashboards extensively and are aware of the change made yesterday to the Power BI Free service.  We've had our clients activate their free Pro trial and are using a Pro account to share out-of-tenant.

 

However, even after activation, out-of-tenant shared dashboard links are not working.  They just display the Power BI logo and it blinks continuously.  

 

I tried going to the dashboard as the owner (again, logged into a Pro account), clicking "Stop Sharing" on the dashboard and re-sharing with the client (who had activated the Pro trial) and still, they see the blinking Power BI logo.

 

Using developer tools in the browser, I see a failed XMLHttpRequest:

URL: https://wabi-us-north-central-redirect.analysis.windows.net/powerbi/invitation/dashboards/invitation...
Method: HTTPS POST

Error code: 401 (Unauthorized)

 

Looks like yesterday's switch-over broke out-of-tenant dashboards.  This seems to happen all the time, out-of-tenant sharing is very unstable and doesn't seem to be tested well enough when changes are made to the Power BI Service.  I've opened many other tickets reflecting these issues on this site.

Please let me know if you need any more details, all of our clients are dead in the water right now (even after activating the Pro trial).  @v-haibl-msft - you've been very helpful in the past on keeping me informed & updated on issues like this so wanted to proactively make you aware what's happening here.

Yesterday, all my datasets were refreshing just fine but today nothing happens.

- The automatic refresh hasn't done anything.

- When I press "Refresh now", I get a "popup" saying "preparing refresh" for a split second and then nothing happens.

 

The only way to update the data is to refresh the Desktop version and then upload it. 

 

I have datasets connection to an on-premises database and one connecting to a sharepoint site.

- The on-premises connection usually works perfect, but now nothing happens.

- The sharepoint connection usually brings up an error,  if I try to refresh, but now nothing happens (I just tried it this time as a test, as it usually doesn't work automatically).

 

Can you please help troublefinding - It seems like an issue on you online portal somehow.

 

Thanks in advance.

ArcGIS not working in desktop

The ArcGIS map visual was working fine yesterday but now it doesn´t even load, it just appears blank (neither the Esri logo nor the loading bars appear on the visual). I was wondering if there is some solution for this or if it´s just a temporary thing due to some update. 

 

PS: I have the latest update (May 2017) installed and I`ve already tried clearing my data cache in options and disabling the ArcGIS preview, closing the pbi file and opening it again; Nothing seems to work.

All of the sudden (perhaps after the April 2017 update?), any dashboards we share out-of-tenant from Power BI Web are missing the tabs along the bottom to switch between the different reports in that dashboard.  

We tested with in-tenant sharing and it works fine - only an issue when shared externally.   

 

We tried creating a new dashboard from scratch with 2 simple tabs and published out of tenant - same issue.  All tabs are just gone!  

 

 

By the way, I did see a similar thread (http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/Report-tabs-missing-on-shared-dashboard/idi-p/150884) but it seems too different from what we're experiencing.  In that case, 3 out of 5 tabs disappeared and it happened when shared internally or externally.  Our issue happens only when sharing externally.  Perhaps the same issue.

 

We noticed a warning on the client side that only appears when looking at it out-of-tenant - this may be related to what's happening or perhaps not:

There seems to be other issues with PBI of late (data failed to load when first opening a dashboard) so perhaps the tabs missing are part of a bigger problem.  However, for now that is the problem that is getting in the way of us delivering analytics to our clients.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

P.S. We had another issue with out-of-tenant dashboards where the Export Data just didn't work for them.  It was eventually fixed, but I'm beginning to wonder whether or not out-of-tenant sharing is the red-headed-stepchild of the PBI feature set.  It could certainly use a little more testing with each release...while I love the pace of innovation of PBI this isn't the first time that something in this dark, scary corner of PBI was broken and our clients were impacted.  Food for thought if this post happens to cross into any PBI QA LOS.
