Issue came up for us today - we were able to use a workaround of simply deleting and recreating the Text filter.

It occurred on Desktop and also once published to online service - same field, no object filters applied etc.

Thanks for your reply! This worked for me.

Hi. The "text filter" component stopped working with the report at a few days ago. Moreover, it is visible in Power BI Desktop and in the BI cloud, but it is not displayed in Power BI Report Server (jan2020).

 

The PBIX (severely cut, but the error continues to exist) I sent you an email.

We've also noticed an issue today, not sure when this started. 

 

Please note that the 'Text Filter' visual works fine in the workspace viewing the report, but once we publish the report in an App the visual will not render. Now we've noticed that if we go back to the workspace and run the report out of the workspace and then go back to the App and run the same report that the visual will display. However, this appears to be user by user and is not fixing this across the board. 

 

So to sum this up, it appears to work fine in the workspace but not when published to an App

I'm having the same issue suddenly in Power BI Desktop.  I've tried using the text filter and regular slicer but neither seem to work on certain fields????  I can use the text filter to search by name from 4,000 records but when I enter an ID code (text) it appears to work but nothing changes in the underlying data.

 

When I put the same ID code field in the regular slicer, it only gives me 3 IDs from which to choose - out of over 4,000.  There are ZERO other filters on this query/report and it has no affiliations in the relationship screen.

It works well on my machine.

 

Can you share repro steps or Power BI report?

Hello,

 

I have had the same problem with many users since May 2018. I thought that the June 28 update could correct this problem but it still does not work. Do you find the cause of the problem?

 

The search component appears in the workspace but is invisible on the published application.

 

I use a Power BI service and publish the application with roles.

 

I join screenshots of the problem and generated HTML code.

Hello Oliver,

 

Its working fine from next one or two days when i raised issue. i dont know exact reason for that.

 

At that point when i faced the issue i replaced search filter with slicer and published.

After one or two days when i again replaced with search filter and published then it is working.

that is how search filter working for me.

Hello,

 

We have the same problem now (for one day now).

 

Doesn't work

  • On portal view mode
  • Greyed out when published eg. on Teams tab (or not showing altogether)

    Works

    • On portal edit mode (and right after saving + switching back to view mode, but not after browser refresh anymore)
    • On desktop and mobile app

Best regards,

Arto Pennanen

Hello,

We also are experiencing the same issue.  One of the warning indicators came-up and said we had too many fields for search.  Never had this issue before.

 

Works in Desktop Mode, does not work in Portal View.

Hello guys,

 

If this issue is still actual, could anyone provide a report for analysis and send it to pbicvsupport@microsoft.com?

 

Kind Regards,

I'd like to provide a PBIX for you, but here is what I found in PBIRS May version. We are getting ready to test Jan version. In May PBIRS version, for direct query to SQL 2016, it is failing on desktop and on server for searching a fairly simple set of 2600 rows. For Excel import, it works on both desktop and server, searching a more complex set of 9200 rows. I hope that is somewhat helpful.
