Publishing Composite Model

Hi

 

I have had some issues with a model where I needed to add a table to a direct query.

As I can't change the source data I needed to do this in Power BI, but as I need the model to be live I needed it to be direct query and therefore I couldn't add a table.

 

And then I found Composite Models Smiley Happy

I switched it on, added my table and it all worked perfectly Smiley Happy

Until I had completed first stage of the model and needed to publish......

 

Then I was met with the error "Publishing is Disabled. The file can't be published to the Power BI service yet becasue it includes the following preview features: Composite models"

 

It says yet.

Does that mean that this will be activated?

Since the feature is new is the full functionality yet to come?

 

Or is there a way to activate publishing for composite models?

Re: Publishing Composite Model

It looks like this may be enabled in the cloud service with the October update, based on the roadmap update from last month's Business Applications summit:

@thegekko42,

 

Here is a note.

While composite models are in Preview, it is not possible to publish composite models to the Power BI service.

Re: Publishing Composite Model

Thanks 

 

Has anyone seen anything about how long it's expected to be in preview for?

 

Weighing up whether to restart my model from scratch or complete it and puclish once that has been released.

Re: Publishing Composite Model

Thank you very much otravers.

 

I was hoping for September, but October will do Smiley Wink

 

I have made a light version of my model that will work with Import, and I will keep my master version as Composite so it'll be ready when the feature is live.

 

So management will have to make due with a light version until October.

Re: Publishing Composite Model

Hi 

I have been getting this error but I don't have any composite data models at present?

I tried it the composite data model at first,  then I realised that I didn't need the extra data so I deleted it.

now its telling me that there are composite data models.

Re: Publishing Composite Model

I am also getting this error  even though I don't have composite data models

At first, I tried it  to see  what it was like and then deleted the data  as I didn't need.

Now its persistently telling me that it won't publish cause of composite data models.

Re: Publishing Composite Model

@alexoriginal check your data model and make sure you don't have a many-to-many relationship between any tables.

                        Even I faced the same issue. I found an alternate way to publish on power bi service.

We can manually upload the pbix file on the service. And configure the gateway settings. It worked for me. Hope it works for you too.

                        Wondering how we can upload the pbix file manually but not by publishing it through power bi desktop.
