Power BI Metadata is not passed sometimes

Hey!

 

I discovered a bug while developing a custom visual. The problem is that metadata is not passed in my case. Trying on the Power BI Service, but I think the desktop version has the same problem. Here it is:

 

1. I have a field named "dataPoint" in the capabilities.json (showing only necessary blocks, the rest are removed on the screenshot).

2. I drag some data into the bucket named "Color saturation". metadata.objects looks like on the screenshot #2. As expected, "dataPoint" object is there, and everything works fine so far.

3. Then I save the report and reopen it by refreshing the page. Now "dataPoint" is absent in the "objects", so I can't retrieve the data I need and color saturation is not applied to items. I assume this is the bug.

This custom visual has the same problem with color saturation.

Re: Power BI Metadata is not passed sometimes

This is a very old bug in Power BI that is still on backlog.

Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
