After instalation of PBI Desktop update (March) I am not ableto open any PBI file (even new blank one). I tried to repair PBI desktop via Control PAnel, reinstall back to rpevious verison, change x64 bit to x32 bit version, but nothing worked.
Error messages varies based on PBI file that i am trying to open, below is one of the error logs that PBI shown me after PBI failed. Sometimes is error message only announcement that PBIDesktop is not able to load data modle and nothing else (what is kinda strange when this error message appear during opening of blank PBI file...

This is actually hiding underneath, when the zoom level is 90% it shows up
This is happening with lot of languages.
Noticed yesterday that when testing "view as role" in the PBI service a selection seems to get de-selected immediately. However it works in the Desktop app. Still not working today so figured that this might be a bug in the online service? Anyone else with a similar issue?
I have a PBIX file that updates every Monday from a web page.
Last Monday March 5th (before the March 2018 Update) all was fine
Today Monday March 12th (after the March Update) I get this error
The supplied URL must be a valid 'http:' or 'https:' URL
Well the URL is working and it opens fine in any browser! (Firefox, Edge, Chrome)
Here's the error I see in the Query Editor
Oddly the URL still works in Power Query but not PBI
I've duplicated the issue with this different link http://www.imdb.com/chart/top
Here's result in PBI
And result with same URL in Excel
Any ideas / suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

UPDATE: This happens with both March 2018 Versions I've tried so far
2.56.5023.861 - March 7 and
2.56.5023.942 - March 12
Both don't work and say URL is Invalid!
Also I was able to downgrade to Feb 2018 and I do NOT encounter this issue there!
I have noticed that report usage metrics is not appearing for newly created reports. Reports that are created last couple of weeks does not show up when connecting to the Report usage metrics model.
Metrics for "old" reports still generate statistics but nothing from all the new reports!
There have been a similar issue a couple of months back and before new year which was fixed in February according to some other issue that was posted here but it now seems to be happening again.
This does not seem to be same issue as is posted under the Support page since it states that usage data is complete after 2/7!
Tenant is located in North Europe in my case.
Power BI usage metrics for reports are missing data from 1/19 to 2/7. As a workaround, the Power BI audit logs can be used to determine report usage during this period of time. Usage data for reports is complete before 1/19 and after 2/7. Usage metrics for dashboards is unaffected.
This used to work fine but when I try to 'test as role' today in service, whatever emailadress I select it just doesn't stick. The apply button is also disabled.
Anybody else having this issue? (no problem in desktop)
Did not receive the daily updates for any of the four reports that I subscribe to. My colleagues have the same issue.
Report subscriptions were working correctly through yesterday. Confirmed in the Power Bi service that the datasets were refreshed earlier today which should have triggered the emails.
Anyone else having a problem today?
As per the title all basic date slicers are stuck in the US date format and cannot be changed. My regional setting are set to UK and changing this around does not fix the issue.
Lately while I was maintaining the published reports from the Power BI desktop; noticed that after save, when I clicked on the Publish button, it calls the sqldmper.exe (the command window) and crashes; sometimes hanged and had to kill the task.
Then I noticed PBD keeps logging me out during publish, calls that sqldmper.exe and after crash, have to relogin and publish till now.
I believe there's a bug in latest update; I am running the january 2018 update.
Is anyone else facing the same issue?
This is becoming a very big pain point for me.... It is crucial that my colors stay consistent throughout my report, However, the colors will change in the service!!
Below image shows what I have set in Desktop.
Below shows what is in the Service. Even when I try to re-publish my desktop report. The colors won't match. I have to completely delete the report from my service, then publish. And even then it only lasts a day before the colors are changed.
You will notice, it is all the same colors in both charts.... However, they are just taking different priorities.... In Desktop, I have the magenta line as top priority, but in the Service, it doesn't follow that.
Please, please, please fix this. There are so many threads about this, that have supposedly been resolved, but the issue is not resolved.
I have a report with 2 data sources (MSSQL and MySQL) after I deploy the report to the report server I change the data source credentials and test them successfully.
However when I set up a scheduled data refresh it fails with a login error to one of the data sources and when I go back into the data source and retest the connections one of the connections will fail. I then re-enter the credentials and test again (successfully) but the next scheduled refresh will fail with a login error. When I go back into test the data sources one of them will fail again.
It is almost as of the login credentials are getting forgotten or corrupted.
There was a similar issue last year. It seems that has re-occured.
When I attempt to publish a report and have not signed into the Desktop yet, a command prompt box appears then disappears and Power BI crashes. Also, it seems that after the January 2018 update, Power BI requires to re-signin for each report created prior to installing the update. Normally after I have already signed in, Power BI will not request for another signin the next time I open the same report.
In the March PBID (Version: 2.56.5023.861 64-bit (March 2018)) - If you delete a page in a report, it does not prompt you to Save when you close the pbix, and does not Save the changes either (assuming you do not explicitly Save the file first). When you reopen the pbix the page you deleted is still there.
After I updated my Power BI Desktop to February update I noticed that everytime I refresh the datasets the sorting by column resets and goes to default. That's so disturbing that I will have to downgrade to the December update, because the January upgrade had issues in DirectQuery mode.
I've tested on two different machines and on the machine with the December version there was no such issue as reseting the column sort to default.
Very nice feature BTW.
I know this is in Preview but here is an issue i have spotted this morning.
For the Table Visual such as below, this is operating properly (filtering) in Desktop but this is not in PowerBI Service. I have tried with another formatting for the Tooltip same. And I also had this Report Page tooltip working on another report. Now, writting this report: the report where it's failing is Live Query On Prem SSAS. The one where it works, is On Prem, Import, SQL Database.
We have a Power BI daily status report that is published to the power bi service and shared with users. Users subscribe to the main report page to receive a daily status update via email.
The report was edited in the Power BI Desktop service to add a new visual on the main page. The name of that page was not changed. After the report was published to the Power BI service, users stopped receiving the daily email update. When they signed onto Power BI service to view their subscription status, they now see the word "Draft" next to the repport page name. The only fix is for them to delete that subscription and then resubscribe to that page.
This is tremendously inconvenient-- we need to be able to edit our reports without breaking subscriptions.
I have just installed the Feb 2018 update for Power Bi and i am no longer able to open any .pbix files. I recieve the message;
Unable to open document; we weren't able to restore saved database to the model
There is a current forum open - http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Unable-to-open-document-we-weren-t-able-to-restore-saved/m-p...
I have followed some previous blogs of uninstalling/reinstalling, and the error still remains. Can anyone help please?
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.
