Category not visible - PBI KPI Matrix visul

Hello everyone,


I'm actually aving issue with the Power BI KPI Matrix visual.

I've done what i wanted to with a matrix, but I would like to turn the matrix into this visual. BUT, I'm having serious issu with the "category" field.

Has you can see on the screenshot, the fist field I move to category doesn't show up. Nothing happen.
Moreover, the second one created a row, witch is a good this but only display "other" with is not on of the entry of this category it's juste a default name of PBI.
Last thing, I'm working with an hypercube not stored on PBI, so keep in mind I can't change the table used here.


Thanks all in advance

hi @v-yulgu-msft


Thanks for your reply


As I said, the source of this PBI Dashboard is a cube, and I have no idea how it is organized.

I just wanted to know if this problem was common and if they where any workaroud.


Logically, if it's working as a matrix, I'm confused it doesn't work as a PBI KPI matrix.


Best Regards,
