New Idea

the latest rollout of a new feature (Analytics, Measure Drillthrough) has caused an additional section to show up on our embedded Power BI reports (we are using the filter pane). See screenshot with a dummy report embedded into our application - is there ANY way to disable showing the DRILLTHROUGH portion? It is already confusing our end users because they don't understand what to do with it (and they don't have the ability to "drag drillthrough fields here"). Please help!drillthrough showing in filter pane for end user.JPG

Hi Team,

We're running into what appears to be a rendering issue in slicers. For example, if you select an item, change your mind, deselect it, then close out of the box and reopen it the slicer options show up blank. See attached images.

The only remedy to this seems to be resizing the screen or choosing a different option and forcing the slicer to refresh based on another selection. It should be noted that this is running from an SSAS Tabular Cube. It's also an Embedded Application, but we've confirmed the behavior is appearing in both the Service and Embedded, so it's not a result of the Power BI API.1.PNG2.PNG


Please assist!

Select query in odata v4 is ignored

Status: Accepted
by agur Frequent Visitor on ‎01-31-2018 04:16 AM

When using $select in the query string for an OData v4 service it is ignored.

For example:

= OData.Feed("https://<org>$select=name,actualrevenue")

This returns all opportunities with ALL fields, not only name and actualrevenue


= OData.Feed("$select=id")

This returns ALL fields, not only group ID


This has a HUGE business impact, as this makes loading data in PBI reports extremely slow. The consensus in the Dynamics 365 environment is to export the data to an Azure database before loading it into PBI, which breaks security hierarchy and makes everything less user friendly.

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

Instead of being displayed in edit mode and hidden in view mode the menu (appBar) is no longer visible when switching an embedded report from view to edit mode with 


Embedding the report in Edit mode shows the menu correctly on start but after switching from edit to view mode it turns black and all the file menu is empty.


Are there new APIs to control the menu visibility or is this a bug?

Slicer Scroll Bug on user selection

Status: Needs Info
by donquijote Frequent Visitor on ‎01-03-2018 12:15 AM

On Power BI embedded report (based on azure workspace) I see the following behaviour on my slicers.

The slicers contain relatively long list of items so that they require scroll.

Multiple item selection is enabled in the slicers.

When the user selects a couple of items in the higher part or the list, the slicer will automatically scroll somewhere unrelated down the list. What is more problematic is that the slicer doesn't allow to scroll up again to the top of the list.

The slicer goes again to the top of the list if the user interacts with other visual in the same page of the report.

When the user what's to slice the data often this bug produces a painful expericence.

PowerBI Online & PowerBI Embedded

Status: New
by timwilson Frequent Visitor on ‎01-08-2018 03:51 PM



This morning we have experienced issues with reports in the online service and embedded, the data is not returning the correct results from the DB (directquery), e.g. if i open the report in the desktop client, i see the correct data, when I run the embedded or online version it returns no data or very little data.



In a Power BI embedded (via azure workspace) I get the following error on some visuals:

"Custom visuals have been disabled for your organization"

The visuals are not custom visuals from the custom visual gallery but very simple standard visuals, for example a standard Card visual to display a string, referring to a measure with a simple IF statement to choose between two strings.

A common element to all the places where I see this bug is the use of IF statement in the measure that is displayed in the visual.

In all cases the visual is a simple Card.


Memory Allocation for Tier

Status: New
by darranm Frequent Visitor on ‎12-07-2017 07:59 AM

Hi all,


I have done a routine check of the datasets within our Premium EM1 Capacity and found a small number of reports (within the same App Workspace), have not been refreshed, some have.


The error is:

Processing error: You have reached the maximum allowable memory allocation for your tier. Consider upgrading to a tier with more available Memory.


This is a little striking, has anybody else seen this issue? We have an extremely small number of reports utilising EM1 Premium, with average to little usage (development phase), yet we have exceeded 80% memory thrashing 8 times in the last 7 days.


Are the particular reports failing at fault here, or have their refreshes arbitrarily been chosen to pause?

I tried the java script sample from github inwhich i tried to embed the dashboad into webpage but the problem is i coudent able to see the filter option when embeding into dashboard where as i could see the filter option while coming to embeding reports,is there any way to see the filter in embeding dashboard. i have attached the screen shots of the problem

Apps not showing icon for workspace

Status: Accepted
by OneWithQuestion Member on ‎09-19-2017 11:46 AM

Apps no longer inherit the workspace icon and publish with the workspace icon.


In PBI if you go to workspaces, then members, then click the icon in the workspace you can upload a new icon.


However, it never syncs back to the App when you deploy the changes.


Is there an estimate to when this will be fixed?

I have pasted a link to the image above, I could not embed it for some reason.


I am pretty new to PowerBI, so be nice. I have loaded some geographical data against the UK using a postcode file on a map.


I get a yellow warning error bar at the bottom of the ESRI/ ARCGIS map that tells me: "Failed to Locate 23 Features".


I cannot work out how to interrogate, review or fix these 'features'.


It would be really helpful if error reporting was able to be scrutinised a lot more clearly for a novice like myself.


Any comments and support would be welcome. 


Many thanks,
