New Idea

I seem to be having issues with the recent Power BI update (December 2017), whereby when invlaid relationships are trying to be established between two tables Power BI exits with no warning.

Date filler issue

Status: New
by Idan_liniad Visitor yesterday

Last week our team start notice wired behavior of date filter.

we mainly work with the 'advanced filtering' for dates filtering to analyze data on an hourly level. when trying to pick the first date range it won't select the date that was picked in the calendar pop-up, but when selecting the second date range it's updating the first date range.


We tried using Chrome, Firefox and Edge - they all have the same behavior.

it's for any selected date, not to a specific range.

Power BI Service Down

Is the Power BI Service down for anyone else?


UK, 8:37am


Power BI Error.PNG

When I try to update a content pack, (in, cog -> View Content Pack ->  Edit (an existing content pack) -> click UPDATE button), I see an error message that begins "The following groups have failed validation..." This happens with all of my content packs, even when there are only 5 members of the workspace that the content pack is publishing to, and all members are definitely still current staff members. Any ideas?

Clicking items on the legend of a ribbon chart causes the entire ribbon chart to gray out. 

Instead, clicking an item in the legend should cause the selected item to be highlighted in the ribbon chart, while other categories should be grayed out.


- other charts are cross highlighted as expected.

- clicking other charts cross highlights the relevant part of the ribbon chart.

- clicking the ribbon chart highlights the appropriate category at the axis point selected.

Reports are not working in the service

Status: Needs Info
by Steffen Frequent Visitor on ‎11-17-2017 05:15 AM

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.

Greetings all,


After the update on 11.12.2017 we have noticed that the advanced filter for dates has stopped working correctly.



Basic and relative date Report Filter works fine, however, Advanced date filter does not work correctly anymore. You can open the advanced filter, and the calendar, however, you cannot select anything... What you select in the first calendar goes to the second date box. However, if you select something in the second box, it doesn't go anywhere. 


I believe you understand the criticality of this bug, and I'm tired of answering the phone.


The problem can be reproduced by all our users, testers and developers, both on and embedded reports (premium). It does not affect any filters in the PowerBI desktop.


If you need more info, give an e-mail (or if you have access to contact details, contact me directly) and I'll send you a video to demonstrate the bug and try to help you understand the situation better if needed.

When loading the page we are getting 500 errors for multiple http calls


Below you can find the console log from chrome debugger0


(index):163 GET 500 (Internal Server Error)
doInitialMetadataLoad @ (index):163

web.bundle.min.js:26 GET 500 (Internal Server Error)

I have developed some reports in Power BI Desktop which include the martix visual. All visuals are displaying correctly when viewing the reports in Power BI Desktop, but when I publish and try to view report in the Server, the Matrix is not displaying any information. All other visuals seem to be working fine in the server, just not the matrix.

Data Source Credentials Not Updating

Status: Needs Info
by Topgunz786123 Occasional Visitor on ‎12-07-2017 12:31 PM

All of a sudden all of my automatic refreshes have been failing due a message "Your data source can't be refreshed because the credentials are invalid." Nothing has changed and I don't know why I am receiving this message. 


I click on Edit Credentials (Salesforce credentials) and unable to do so because now I'm receiving this message "Failed to update data source credentials: We're sorry, an error occurred during evaluation".


This was all working fine a couple of days ago and yesterday, I started running into the refresh issue. I have deleted my cache, cookies, etc. but I am unable to edit my Salesforce creditials.


Anyone have any ideas / thoughts?


Thank you!

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?

When I try to access the Relationships view of any dataset, I get this error message:

"Unhandled exception has occured in a component in your application.  If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue.  The type initializer for 'System.Windows.Interop.OSVersionHelper' threw an exception."


After clicking continue or after just closing out of the error window, there are no further errors, but the Relationship view shows up as a blank page, showing none of the tables that I have imported. 


I tried uninstalling and reinstalling PowerBI and restarting my whole computer, but it did not help.  Suggestions for fixing this are most welcome!

Hi everyone,


Since the latest PBI service update the Chiclet visual is not working within published reports. The issue has been raised in the Community forum but yet to be resolved:


From initial testig this is what we have found:

 - various versions of the visual work within PBI Desktop (also variety of versions) but whenever published doesn't work as it should

 - when published online the visual doesn't refresh the other affected visuals (instead it either does nothing, displays the wrong information, or requires a different visual to be clicked before it is refreshed)

 - only under one circumstance were we able to get it published correctly (that was to an account we created years ago in O365 - all other accounts, including new accounts created in O365 today, fail to load the visual properly)

 - the visual works fine within the Windows 10 PBI App

 - the issue (that we have kown about) has been ongoing for the past few days - corresponding with the latets PBI Service update


Any help would be much appreciated as we have over 50+ reports using this visual and it's quite an embarassing to have to explain to users/customers we're not sure why or when the issue can be fixed.





Relationship Display is not saving changes

Status: Needs Info
by DQuigg Frequent Visitor on ‎11-14-2017 11:11 AM

Is the relationships display in Desktop supposed to save the current position.  In other words, if I drag the hierarchy the way that I want, isn't it supposed to save it?  I seem to get constant issues where I clean up the display only to come back in and it is all hosed up.  Sometimes it seems to save it properly.  What am I missing? I had the one below all nicely laid out and then come back in later and it is all messed up per below.

Olá pessoal,

Estou com uma situação posterior :

Consigo a ajuda de vocês?

I have a set of reports that use an MDX SSAS cube data source with defined hierarchies.  The reports include multiple matrix visuals, some table visuals and a few other visuals.  The reports function correctly in Power BI Desktop; however, when the report is published to the service the matrix visuals fail to render.  The visual can be switched to a table and it will display results.

Users starting reporting that their Analyze in Excel feature is not working anymore in Power BI. The organization is heavily dependent on the reports and due to this feature being stopped working, we are facing severe issues. 

Please help any MSFT member.

image.pngimage.pngimage.pngimage.pngMy visuals are not displaying the negative values all the visualisations. I assume it is because the y axis does not want to show negative values. I cant find any options in the format editter which help with this problem. 

The values chosen are simply input into a column of a new table that is not connected to any other tables and therefore there is no model to consider. The date column is only used to display the data in the visualisation.
