Power BI Embedded Report Javascript library: Cannot read property 'accept' of undefined

I need some help in understanding how to debug an error on a report which was embedded using the PowerBI-Javascript.

From documentation provided in order to debug errors the following code can be used:



// Add a listener to 'error' events
report.on('error', (errorObject) => {
    const err = errorObject.detail;

    // Print error to console
    console.log(`Error occurred: ${err.message}. Detailed message: ${err.detailedMessage}`);




This functions as expected, but it is producing an IError object with message "Cannot read property 'accept' of undefined" whenever a users interacts with a graph on the report (E.g. clicking on a bar on a barchart). There is however no detailedMessage provided.

What could this message be referring to or where should I start my investigation?
