Can't display the visual - Invalid or malformed QueryDefinition

Running into a weird error within my report on Power Bi Desktop.

 

Query looks good, no errors being reported.

However, only one tile is being displayed without the error. When I use the Project Manager slicer - the data shows without any issues. No other errors besides the Invalid or malformed QueryDefinition. If I open the report on my machine (which is a test machine) no issues. If I do this on my client's machine (whom I've created the report for), we see this error. Both Desktop versions are February 2018.

Re: Can't display the visual - Invalid or malformed QueryDefinition

Hello @v-yulgu-msft, always appreciate your help.

 

It looks like I was able to figure this out late yesterday. Some of the servers that we were querying did not have the MySQL connector installed. After installing it, and closing/opening the report, the problem went away. At first I didn't suspect this was the problem because if Power Bi can't connect to a database it will normally let you know about installing the MySQL connector.

 

In any case, we are good to go Smiley Happy

Hi @jfenico,

 

"If I do this on my client's machine (whom I've created the report for), we see this error."

 

Do you sign in with the same account on both your machine and client's machine? Are both desktops the same version? Currently, the latest release is 2.55.5010.641. What is the error message by clicking "See details"?
