Hit Reply and let us know what you think of the DirectQuery for Power BI datasets and Azure Analysis Services. To learn more about this feature, please visit this blog post or our documentation.
Here are some areas that we'd like to hear about in particular:
Thanks and we look forward to hearing your feedback!
- The Power BI Modeling Team
While we understand that a developer would require build access to all datasets in the chain, it is unclear to us why a reader would also require build access to all datasets in the chain (why not just read access). To us this is the main reason why we cannot use this -otherwise great- feature at this point as this way we would not be GDPR compliant. Will this change? Or is there perhaps a workaround?
this was launched on April 4th: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/update-to-required-permissions-when-using-composite-models-.... Please note that this is for Premium and PPU for now.
Hi - really pleased when this blog announcement came out. I had every user who needed access to anything as a Member of the Premium workspace. I've changed them all to Viewers but now multiple users are only seeing an error on any visualisation from 1 'base' dataset that's part of the composite model. They can see visualisation from the others datasets that make up the model in the same reports, just not that one. That report set is published by another user, from a SQL database, to the workspace. Is this a known exception or should I open a support ticket?
Good afternoon! How cool, our licensing here at the company is PRO, do you imagine that the resolution of the technical problems reported to enable the solution for PRO should be resolved soon?
Getting the below message while trying to link 2 tables in one dataset to a date dimension held in another dataset. Any plans to allow this behavour? or how would you suggest completing what would be a common scenario for us?
No, this will not be supported. Either split your dataset your trying to relate into two or bring the hared dimension (DimDate) into both and leverage synced slicers. Also, I'd recommend watching SQLBI's video on this preview feature as well
Are there any plans for support for calculation groups where a query is running in retail mode and the calculation group is defined on the remote model?
Almost all enterprise models will contain a calculation group for Time Intelligence that users are well accustomed to using. Alternatively would it be possible to show an error rather than an incorrect value where the measure contains both wholesale and retail execution and will therefore show unexpected results?
In that way the use of the calculation group won't return incorrect results.
Today I had a user who's getting this error from reports created using composite models.
"COM erros: Microsoft.PowerBI.AS.ConnectionDetailsProvider. Missing connection string password"
Cloud credentials for these datasets are working. We're going to submit a ticket, but posting here in case others are seeing the same thing or if there's a quick fix.
