Limitations about connecting a SSAS multidimensional model

Hi,

I'm searching an official article that talks about limitiations when a SSAS multidimensional model is connected to PBI.

This paper doesn't seem complete:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-ssas-multidimensional#considerations-and-limitatio...

 

F.e., it isn't possible to add a new measure or a new column.

 

Any help to me, please? Thanks

@pmscorca,

Besides the above limitations, there are also the following points.

1.Data view and relationship view are not available in Power BI Desktop, that is to say, it is impossible to manage relationship in Desktop. And we are limited to connect to a single  SSAS database of a single server.
2. It is not possible to change data type /format of fields.
3. It is not possible to use Q&A in Power BI Desktop.
4. Almost it is not possible to use all the buttons under Modeling ribbon.
