We absolutely love the concept of the newly announced Composite Model feature in July 2018 but it doesn't seem to support an SSAS Tabular live connection? Composite Model is turned on but in our existing reports with SSAS live connections there is no way to add other sources respectively have the "dual storage" option? Anyone know if/when this will be supported?
In my case i need this feature with multidimensional model, i think this feature will arrive soon, a least i hope so. i tested with july update and don't works.
I am wondering the same thing.
In the youtube-video for the july-release of power bi, it was said the the composite model would work for tabular, but not multi cubes. But when I read the article on composite models (link below), it says that analysis server is not supported. The tabular cubes runs only under analysis server, dont they?
Wondering the same thing. I have created a data model in Analysis Services and deployed it to Azure Analysis Services Server. In Power BI I can only connect via live connection or import. When using live connection I do not have further access to get data from other sources. How can I get access to composite models when using Azure Analysis Services?
I rewatched the video where the preview of composite models was announced
And around 7:25 the presenter says, in the preview period "will only support tabular sources", and "multi dimensional sources are not supported yet"
This is where I think I misunderstood, it probably should be understood as tabular = data in tables, not tabular cubes.
Still it would be great to get a clearification the ms inteends to release support for multi dimentional cubes for composite models. It would planning the roadmap forward much easier.
Yeah, it was a bit of a letdown to see that live Tabular connections aren't supported yet. I hope it's coming. When it does, I can see the value of our data warehouse expanding greatly.
Agree, it would be great to have. I havent seen any updates yet. I asked about this on the Power BI youtube-channel and the reply seemed to confirm that ms is working on this. But as far as I know, MS havent not said how this functionality will be implemented, ie will both tabular and multi cubes be suppported? Will the functionality require a later version of SQL Server?
