MapBox visual deprecating?

Hi,

I get a warning when opening the MapBox visual that it will be deprecated. Can anyone confirm this?

I spent weeks searching for the shapefiles and customising them to have a drill down experience when using the map.

The answer I got from Mapbox:
Hi, 

Thanks for writing in and choosing Mapbox for your mapping needs. We have some exciting updates that will be occurring with the Mapbox and Power BI integration. 

Over the past few weeks, you may have received a notification Visual is not supported and will be deprecated.... Please disregard this message as it does not accurately reflect the status or future plans of the Mapbox Visual for Power BI. Microsoft has removed this notification as of this week.

We want to clarify that the Power BI integration is not being deprecated.

Hi,

 

I get that message too 😞

 

How did you solve this?

 

Hi @yafit ,

I haven´t solved it. Just as Evogelpohl commented I hope it´s just returning this message because they need to update something. Because right now there isn´t a good alternative if you want to use your own shapefiles and with a drill down option.

I hope that someone of the PowerBI team or from MapBox could confirm if we have to look for alternatives.

Just got the same error today. 

My guess is that this is a default error when a visual is a bit older than the current standard for using Powerbi's internal bits - perhaps a render engine feature that's been updated, but the visual is still calling an old component...

 

Totally a guess on my part... I sure hope Microsoft doesn't force the Azure Maps visual as a replacement - it's far too limiting compared to MapBox's.

Any Update on this?
