How to switch the relationship a measure is using

I am using Azure Analysis Services as the data source. Is there a way to switch which relationships a measure from the cube is using from the Power BI report side or is that sometihng that has to be done on the cube side? If it can be done, what would be the way to do it?

@meddojeddo , if it is a live connection, not much you can do other than creating a measure. In measure, we use userelationship to switch relationships in a tabular model, not sure on the cube.

 

What exactly do you want to achieve.

Hello @meddojeddo ,

 

In Azure analysis services you need to create inactive relationship which you need to activate for given measure and while creating a measure you can use Userelationship DAX function to switch inactive relationship to activate state.
