Drill through to another report not refreshing

Hi!,

I have a problem with te new drill through functionality that makes it possible to drill through to another report page. I´ve set everything up correctly, but my target report simply doesn't seem to refresh the data. So I see all my filters flowing through to the target report, but the filters have no effect on the data. Only when I manually refresh the query, do I see the data actually changing accoring to the filters. I´ve made a short video of the behavior;

I don´t think this is by design and I can't really explain this to my end users. Any feedback on this is more then welcome!

Kind regards,

Hi!

I´ve been looking forward to the drill through functionality to other reports quite long. However I seem to be hitting the same issue over and over. When using the new drill through functionality, the target report seems to get in the filters from my base report, but the filters don´t work. I have to do a manual refresh to make the filters actually work. 

I´m working on an OLAP cube so I can´t give you the .pbix. I´ve made a short video of the issue.

Hopefully this explains what is happening.

Hi @GuustD

 

Does the issue happen to Power BI desktop as well? 

Please update the Power BI desktop to the latest version, open the report then republish the report to see if the same issue occurs. Also please update the on-premises data gateway to the latest version.

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft,

Thanks for the fast reply and sorry for the duplicate. I couldn´t find my original post, so I posted a new one.

This issue is not related to the desktop, because the drillthrough to another report only works in the PBI service. We have the latest version of Power BI and also have the latest version of the gateway running...

so I still need your assistance I´m affraid :-(

Kind regards,

The Power BI support team indicated that this it is currently not supported to work with drill through to another report using a live connection. Although I still consider this to be a bug, I´ve created an Idea to change this. So please vote here;
