Meta-Data - Visualisations

I have been able to export meta-data of my PowerBI file for Tables/Columns, Measures and Relationships.

 

The only thing missing from meta-data is visualisations data. For example, a simple chart on page 1 should have the following metadata:

 

Page = 1

Chart = Bar

Axis = Column_Month, Column_Year

Legend = Customer_ID

Value = Measure_Value_USD

 

Is there anyway I can generate a list of visuals and the measures / columns that are used in that visual?

 

Regards,

Sid

Hi @Phogon , 

 

I had the same issue like you had and for me the addin called "Power Bi Helper" was very useful.

@Phogon ,The information you have provided is not making the problem clear to me. Can you please explain with an example.

Appreciate your Kudos.

Using DAX Studio and the commands at the bottom of this post, I can generate an excel containing all the table columns, all the measures, and all the relationships of a PowerBI File. 

 

I want to be able to generate a list of visualisations. I don't need the data of the actual chart. I just need the type of data that "makes" the chart. For example, if my BI file has a line chart, and a matrix, I want the following info:

 

ChartID = 1, Chartype = Line, ChartAxis = COLUMNNAME, ChartValue = MEASURENAME

ChartID = 2, Chartype = Matrix, ChartColumn = COLUMNNAME, ChartRow = COLUMNNAME2, ChartValye = MEASURENAME

 

Does that make sense?

 

SELECT *
FROM $system.discover_storage_table_columns
WHERE dictionary_size > 0

 

SELECT *
FROM $SYSTEM.MDSCHEMA_MEASURES

 

select *
FROM $System.TMSCHEMA_RELATIONSHIPS
