How to create multiple measure simultaneously ( at one go )

Hello Team ,

 

I want to create 50 measures and I have defined those in notepad.

 

Now , I have to do the following steps 50 times in order to create new meausres .

1. Create new measure 

2. Copy/write a defination of the measure 

3. SAVE the same.

 

I have 50 measures defined with me in a notepad.

 

Is there any other options , where I could paste 50 measure defination and it will get created in one go.

 

Regards,

Ankit

Other than praying they add an api, the only thing I can think of is to do it in Excel 2016 (the object model lets you add measures), then import the excel file into PBI Desktop.

I am not aware of a way to do that today. Presumably this idea would solve it so maybe vote for the idea:
