New Idea

Starting at around 4:00 AM CST on 4/21/2017 the automated PBI refreshes from Azure Analysis Services has stopped working. I had to manually refresh all of my reports data sources at 7:20AM CST. 

 

My cube processes every hour, and the PBI datasets are scheduled to automatically refresh every 15 minutes refresh. I have already waited over an hour for the automated refresh to occur, and it has not yet happened.

 

Please see screenshot below. 

 

Here are the details from "About Power BI"

PBI Refresh Issue.PNG

Hi,

When a custom visual is pinned to a dashboard tooltips are not displayed on mouse over, while native visuals can display their tooltips correctly.

In all other contexts (included dashboard in focus mode) tooltips work as expected.

 

We noticed this issue testing our custum visuals and also pinning to a dashboard the sampleBarChart visual provided by Microsoft.
Debugging the code we noticed that the method visualhosttooltipservice.show() is called as usual in tooltipServiceWrapper.ts, but nothing is shown.

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:

/13.0.1700.1783/scripts/ai.0.js:1 AI: USRACT_StringValueTooLong message:"string value is too long. It has been truncated to 1024 characters." props:"{value:Error: [$injector:unpr]

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.

April 2017 update - import custom visualization option missing on first run

Status: Accepted
by AnthonyB New Member ‎04-14-2017 09:56 PM - edited ‎04-14-2017 09:57 PM

Since upgrading to the April 2017 update (Version: 2.45.4704.442 64-bit (April 2017)) I've noticed that the three ellipses for importing a custom visualization is missing if you also have ArcGIS Maps preview enabled until you collapse and re-expand the Visualizations pane.

 

The problems seems to be that the ArcGIS Maps visualization icon gets placed on top of the 3 ellipses (you can see this as the page renders), but when the Visualzations pane is collapsed and re-opened, it correctly re-calculates the spacing of the icons.

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.

Hi,
I'm working with a live connection to an Azure Analysis Services instance and it seems to me that measures with BLANK values have unexpected behaviours.
This problem arises both using "Standard" and "Azure" connector.

When I put into a table, or other visual, descriptive fields and only blank measures all performs as expected.
When I put into a table, or other visual, numeric fields and a blank measures these show random values (often they are randomly choosen from a field on the same evaluation row).

For my tests I have created a measure as follows "blankmeasure := BLANK()", so I am sure it should not return any value.

Hello,

I've published a report from my work account.

Under Dataset Settings it shows Datagateway error and shows:

This data set has been configured by *myprivate*@gmail.com .

I've tripple checked my credential, sign-out and in ...

I see my WORK environment, but it somehow connects the Dataset to gmail....

And doesn't allow me to set up Enterprise Gatway for Dataset or Refresh

I know others are experiencing same issue here:

Text.AfterDelimiter Bug in Power BI Service?

Status: Accepted
by boujin Frequent Visitor on ‎04-11-2017 02:21 PM

 

Hi,

 

I used the new beta feature Colum From Examples to create a column. It ended up giving me M code with the function Text.BetweenDelimiter. This was my first time to see this function and noticed there was also a Text.AfterDelimiter function that I changed it to as that fit my purposes. I refreshed the entire dataset within Power BI Desktop without any issues and then published to the Power BI Service.

 

When I looked at the refresh in Power BI Service later, the refresh had failed with the following error:

The import Text.AfterDelimiter matches no exports. Did you miss a module reference?. The exception was raised by the IDataReader interface.

 

I went back into Power BI Desktop and swapped out Text.AfterDelimiter with List.Last(Text.Split()) and published again. This time the referesh worked without any issue.

 

I have Text.BetweenDelimiters in use in other parts of the query, so wondering if there is a bug around Text.AfterDelimiter and the Power BI Service.

I though this was fixed in the last release and seemed to stopped happening after I downloaded the newest version. Now it is back and is a complete pain to deal with. Please fix this issue. Sign in issue_Ink_LI.jpg

This morning, when I started Power BI Gateway - Personal, it failed with the error, "GWConf has stopped working A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."  I uninstalled and re-installed the application but am still getting the same error.  The Personal gateway as worked flawlessly for weeks prior to today.  I'm not aware of any changes being made to my PC but I'm using a company computer and sometimes our IT department pushes out updates without prior notification.  Where do I begin looking for the cause of the failure? (I'm just a Power BI user, not a developer.)

Search Box on Slicer Missing

Status: Accepted
by MikeThibs Regular Visitor on ‎01-05-2017 04:39 PM

Hello,

     The Search Box on the Slicer Visualization seems to have a bug when a PBIX file is loaded to the Power BI Service. This issue is affecting the drop-down format of a Slicer. Also it seems to only affect Slicers with a larger amount of items. When there are 2 or 3 items in the slicer the search box will appear however if there are 20 plus or more items it is not working. I've tried several different browsers, so I don't believe that is the issue. Below are screenshot showing the search box has been enabled and the missing search box when you select the drop down. Please help!!! We're on the verge of rolling out hundreds of new Power BI accounts and this is a serious issue when you have large slicer needs.

Power Query - Add Column from Example

Status: Accepted
by LeoSugianto Occasional Visitor on ‎04-06-2017 09:13 PM

HI Microsoft,

 

I tried to add "column from example" in Power BI, which worked so great, but I think I found a bug about it. I did that by inserting the step, so that add column from example is not the last step, however, the M code generated put it to the very last step, and worse it replaces the last step. The title step is still the one I created, for example: Removed Columns, but the code of add column from example was put there.

 

Cheers,

Leo

Hello,

 

I tried to export to PowerPoint but it created blank slides. I can export to PowerPoint by using existing examples created by Power BI itself. However, for my own report, I could not export.

Issue: Dropdown Slicer

Status: Needs Info
by wonga Established Member on ‎03-14-2017 07:44 AM

Sometimes when I use the dropdown slicer in Power BI Desktop, the list of values doesn't disappear after clicking out of it. It will stay on the screen even if I go to a different page of the report.

 

The only way to "fix" it is save my report and reopen the report by closing Power BI Desktop.

 

Please fix as soon as possible, thanks.

In the new January, 2017 release, I get a "Report has already been published" error message when I try to use the PUBLISH option to Update a report that exists on the Service from Desktop.

 

- Steps:

--I updated a report in Desktop that had been previously published to the Service.

--I selected the PUBLISH menu option in Desktop

--I selected MY WORKSPACE (where the report was located)

--I received an error "Report has already been published" and the update failed.

 

I've tried with several different reports both with the Service running and with the Service not running.  I've also exited Desktop and restarted it and repeated the operation.  In all cases, I got the same error.

Export to Powerpoint

Status: Accepted
by jlilleystone Visitor on ‎03-03-2017 01:46 AM

We like to use the Export to Powerpoint feature but I think we've found a bug. If I publish a report from PBI desktop to the PBI.com service and then export the report to Powerpoint it works fine. If in the PBI.com service I take a copy of that report to modify it (by using Save As and giving it a different filename) the export to Powerpoint produces blank slides for each page in the report. The report has no embedded images and only has 5 or 6 pages in the report. Please help - being able to export consistently to Powerpoint is a big part of our use of PBI. If it doesnt work we may have to stop using it. Of course we can take screen grabs of each page and paste them into Powerpoint but I wouldnt expect my users to have to resort to that approach. Thanks.

I have several text tiles on my Dashboard. I made some changes to the text content and styling and saved them, and the save appeared to work. However, when I navigated away from the dashboard and returned to it, the changes had been reverted. I checked with collaborators and no one else had even been on that dashboard at that time.
