Does it work? It crashes visuals on the top of my SSAS MD Cube. Same functionality works on loaded model.

Re: forecasting on SSAS MD

Same question here. Is it supposed to work with a SSAS MD data source? I'm using the PBI November update and I'm not able to make it worked.

 

If I use a date field on the x-axis, the forcasting option is not there. If I use a number (like a month number), the forecasting option is there but if I enable it (add a forecasting line), I got the following error: "Data type is inconsistent, Forecast can't be created because the values are not all numbers".

Re: forecasting on SSAS MD

Same thing here. It seems to be a larger issue where dates coming from a SSAS MD live connection are converted as text by PBI no matter how you set your date in SSAS.

 

Is there any solution to that?

Re: forecasting on SSAS MD

Hello. I am also having the same issue. Using SSAS date values or just number values as dates, but still the forecast feature does not appear 😞 Have you had any luck to solving this issue since you last posted? @Eric_Sergerie @MateuszBI

Re: forecasting on SSAS MD

We moved to tabular mostly. It works fine there. Seems that MD have more and more missing functionalities.
