This hack worked like a charm, but I searched for this problem only after waiting for a couple of hours. Microsoft seriously needs to look into this issue. Sometimes it gets dead stuck on "Evaluating".
Well its abeen about ayear since I created this post and I still have same issues. I doubt they are going to be fixing it soon....
This just started happening to me after upgrading to their August 2018 release. So **bleep** annoying.
I just downgraded to June 2018 release to get past this issue.
I just started having issue of this today with a couple reports that requires join tables within PBI.... these are actually mission critical reports... anybody have any idea if MS is aware of this probleM?
the refresh has been fine for the last couple months we've been using thsi...
This issue appears to persist with the September 2018 release. I have to kill the refresh at least one time in order to pass the "Evaluating" phase.
