Please see limitations documented:
Unfortunately, no, we don't have the suppoert Live Connect to Azure AS and SQL AS in plan. I suggest to vote at https://ideas.powerbi.com/ideas/ (so PM can prioritize it in next semester based on the votes). Sorry for that.
I'm experiencing the same issue as Beefmaster as well (anomaly detection pane doesn't show up after selecting an anomaly data point) even after confirming that I am using a line chart visual with time series data in the axis field. There are no additional values or secondary axes and the legends field is blank.
Any thoughts? Thank you!

1. Have you enabled the Preview Feature?
2. Note we only support line chart (not area chart or stack line chart), x-axis as date type, and y-axis as numeric values, check if you mark the axis as numeric type.
And the x-axis must be with date type (like above), we do support date hierarchy, yet date hierarchy usually has fewer data points and anomaly detection requires >12 points or more to run a reasonable analysis.
3. Make sure you use the latest SU11 Desktop version.
If you check all and still have trouble, we may have to get your pbix (you can obfuscate your data) or online dataset access and debug on why.
I too face the same issue even though all the requirements you mentioned are fulfilled. However, one thing I have noted is that I am having this issue in pbix files where calculation groups are used. In pbix files without calculation groups, the panel comes up. Is usage of calculation groups an additional limitation?
Would you mind elaborating more on how you use the calculation group? You drag calculation group as value in line chart? Is it continuous type?
The issue comes up irrespective of the fact whether you are using the calculation group in your visual or not. If the pbix has a calculation group created in it, the panel does not show up. To demonstrate this issue, I have created two pbix from public data – one with calculation group in it and the other without. You can see that the panel comes up in the pbix without a calculation group. Demo Files
On calculation group? I think calculation group fix should reach PowerBI Service in the next 2weeks and fixed in SU12. The detail timeline may vary considering the vacation season and PowerBI deployment plan.
Or you refer to any other issues?
I have the same problem as @Gopa and I remembered that when you add a Calculation Group, the setting DiscourageImplicitMeasures must be set on True. So i've tested this, by connecting to Tabular Editor and set this setting to True (without creating a Calculation Group) and suddenly the explanations stopped working. So i think the limitation is because of this setting.
Thanks, Lisa. I can confirm that my chart meets all of the requirements you listed above and still nothing happens when I select an anomaly (no anomaly pane).
Let me know how I can get you access to my file with obfuscated data. Thank you!
The expected min/max is controlled by sensitivity (0 - 100%). The higher the sensitivity, the more anomalies and narrow confidence interval (expected min/max).
We have some blogs to explain the SR-CNN algorithm used for anomaly detection.
