Hierarchy Slicer - Unexpected Error

Hi,

Today I opened a .PBIX file where I use the Hierarchy Slicer. The moment after the report was opened in PowerBI Desktop I got this message:

-------

Unexpected Error
An error occured while rendering the report.

"Send a Frown"

-------

 

After doing some investigation I concluded that the Hierarchy Slicer was the source of this error. If I delete the custom visual I do not get the error. Imediately after I download it again from Office Store (through PowerBI Desktop) and put my dimension column in it I get the error.

 

This has never been an issue before. Anybody else experience this?

I have submitted a new version for approval that fixes the 'unexpected error' and after approval it will be available asap.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: Hierarchy Slicer - Unexpected Error

Same here. Didn't seem to correspond to an update to either Power BI Desktop or the visual, so it's a mystery what caused the error.

 

Such a useful visual, this is very unfortunate.

Hi @ALL,

In the version 2.48.4792.721 64-bit (July 2017) of Power BI Desktop, I reproduce the scenario and get the same error message. I have reported it internally. 

Best Regards,
Angelia

Are your users having issues with the hierarchy slicer on published reports? I have one user that it seems to causing issues when he is using it.

Also just noticed that there doesn't seem to be a scroll in the slicer.  Hoping that is just on the desktop.  Seems OK in the published views.

Great!  Any idea how long that usually takes?
