New Idea

Hi all,

I'm experiencing issues with the image grid custom viz ( when connecting in live mode to multidimensional cube i put the imag url as per documentation and the viz is blank.

On the other hand if I import data from the same mutidimensional cube the same columns and measures it renders the images without any issues.


This issue arrised right after I installed the Jan update of PBI.


Someone else also experiencing the same problem?

Any suggestions?

Hi guys,

Apologies if there is a solution already, but I've read trhough a handful of similar posts and none seem to provide a solution.


I have multiple workpsaces in which I am using usage metrics, however in only one workspace, the usage metrics havent updated in a while.


I've removed reports, added new ones and the reports named in the Usage Report still shows the old list.

The dataset shows as the dataset being up to date, but this is clearly not the case.


Any suggestions?


Thanks in advance!

DirectQuery Refresh Broken update january 2018

Status: Accepted
by Goofr Frequent Visitor on ‎01-09-2018 08:11 AM


Seems to me there's a bug in the new January update.
I have a report using DirectQuery, and when I refresh my model it keeps saying:
"Connecting to tables from more than one database isn't supported in DirectQuery mode.".
If I rollback my installation to PBI December, the refresh works, as I don't have multiple datasources in my model.

Thanks in advance.

Hello! I have noticed, that my bookmarks get corrupted, when i change filters. Take a look please:

1) We are at Bookmark_1. Filter area tiles are same for all bookmarks. Filter year is set to "2018", Filter week set "Current"(calculated value)


2) We go to the Bookmark_2. The same page. Tiles below the filter area get hidden, and we see a chart below. Filter year is set to "2018", Filter week set All (as no selection)


3) Now we select Week - ALL


4) And we select YEAR 2016, 2017 , deselect 2018


5)We see this after closing drop down-list..


6) And then we go back to  Bookmark_1. It A s we remember, it should be like this: Filter year is set to "2018", Filter week set "Current"(calculated value). BUT what we see? 

7.PNG8.PNGIf we continue browsing bookmarks after this, they stay broken until you refresh the entire page. As i have a lot of bookmarks, this is a big problem. Users work with report and then accidently they see that filters are set wrong or filters go inverted. 


Please, help!

This issue is reproduced both on PBI Service and PBI Desktop (January 2018 version). 
The issue is not reproduced on PBI Desktop November 2017 version. 

For instance, we have 3 visuals: 
1) "Hours by employes" (FactHours, DimEmployee)
2) "Top 10 Employees" (FactPaycheck, DimEmployee)
3) "Total sum of paycheck" (FactPaycheck)

(1)->(2) - cross-filtering 
(2)->(3) - cross-filtering

Steps to reproduce:
1) select some employee on "Hours by employes"  that is not displayed "Top 10 Employees"
2) pay attention on "Top 10 Employees" visual: needed employee is displayed (only one)
3) select this employee on "Top 10 Employees" visual


Expected: cross-filtering is reset (this behavior was in November release)
Actual: disjoint set appears and all visuals are blank

I've noticed that the right-click drill-through is no longer working in published reports.     The menu doesn't appear on right-click.      It was working fine last week I believe


It works as expected in Desktop and also PBIS



Many of our users rely on the drill-though functionality to view line level detail


Hopefully it can be corrected soon

On a PBI desktop report we have 2 slicers and 1 chart:

Visual 1 is a slicer based on the date dimension (date attribute) - Filter applied

Visual 2 is a slicer based on "Team" attribute - "Show items with no data" is enabled

Visual 3 is a chart, showing a "count" based on a secondary relationship with the date dimension with the "Team" on the axis


Slicer 2 displays all of the "Teams" despite the applied date filter when the viewing via PBI Desktop


When this report is published to our PBI Service, the "Show Items with no data" option does not work, resulting in "Teams" that are displayed in the chart (remember, it is using a count based on a secondary date relationship), not being displayed in Visual 2 (with "Show items with no data" enabled).


Is this a bug?

Okay,  We had the issue last month with unable to join tables together.


Now after updating to the January I cannot load any DIRECT QUERY pbi files as it says it cannot connect to multiple databases when it is only connecting to one.


We are a multi million pund business and have made an investment into using PowerBI as tool.  This breaking on and off all the time is not very viable.  Please can this be fixed ASAP!!!!!!!!

Bug with slicer and Bookmark in Service

Status: Accepted
by rmccormick Visitor on ‎01-11-2018 02:27 PM

In the Power BI Service, I have uploaded a project that utilized a bookmark to reset several slicers on a page.  This works smoothly in Desktop, but in the service, it does not function reliably.  Is there a workaround for this, or is this a known issue?  


Using the standard drop down slicer and no custom visuals.

Hi Guys, 


This morning i was able to login and publish my file to the Power BI web service; this afternoon i downloaded the latest January update and since then i am unable to login to the Desktop app. I get the message "Unable to login. Details: One or more errors have occured". Thats it. Any advice? I cant reset my password for my BI account as it is connected to my Microsoft Account, re-installing has not fixed. Clearing my permission/cache has not fixed. 


Many thanks

We have an web application with embed (via iframe) PowerBI reports. Last week we took an issue with "..." menu on all visuals:

1. Chrome - menu does not appear at all.

2. Safari - menu appears for 1-2 ms

3. IE - works fine Smiley Happy


In PBI Desktop and at all works correctly with all browsers.

In Power BI Desktop Jan 2018 release, with a Date or Date/Time field selected in the Fields pane, when you navigate to the Modeling ribbon / Format / Date Time menu, the options at the top (marked with an *) that respect the machine locale now show in US format (e.g. M/d/yyyy) on machines with non-US locales e.g. English (Australia).


This appears to only be a problem in the display of the menu.  When date fields are shown in a visual e.g. a Table, the expected non-US locale is used e.g. d/M/yyyy.  


This issue was introduced with the Jan 2018 update to PBI Desktop.

I have encountered a relatively minor but annoying graphical bug in the Power BI service. In a published app I have 1 dashboard, 15 reports and ~15 datasets, but when I click the app within Power BI service the last item I can see on the landing page is the 14th report. It looks a bit like the frame isn't sizing as expected, with the behaviour changing if I expand/collapse the dashboards/reports/datasets headers.

This issue occurs in both Chrome and Firefox. If I zoom out to 50% I am able to see all of the items.

Hello everyone, 


Since the new December version has been released, I keep having crashes of Power BI over and over trying to link two tables... 


As soon as I want to create the link (drag and dropping a dimiension to a table to another table) the windows terminal opens with SQLDUMPER.exe and close/crash Power BI.


I have never experienced this before the last release.


Thank you for your help

I created a report in the desktop application a couple of weeks ago which used the OKViz Smart Filter. Everything worked great and I published the report online. Now, the filter does not work in the desktop application and only works online in report mode. Does anyone else have this issue? Is it a limitation with the OKViz Smart Filter? Thanks for the help!

For the last 30 minutes it has not been possible to show reports in the service. They are just loading and never finishes. I have tried with reports from different sources, so the problem is in the Power BI Service. 


Can someone fix this ASAP? I'm based in northern europe.
