Enable New Field Parameters Functionality when using a live data connection from analysis services

I LOVE the idea behind the new Feild Parameters functionality but it is not available with a live connection through analysis services - Please add this!!

Status: Delivered

Hi @caramcfarlane,

 

Currently, creating parameters in live connections data sources is not supported and it’s a limitations listed in the official doc.

Let report readers use field parameters to change visuals (preview) - Power BI | Microsoft Docs

 

For such kind of needs, I would suggest you switching you connection mode to Import or voting for similar idea in Power BI Ideas: https://ideas.powerbi.com/ideas/idea/?ideaid=1d360579-8cd7-ec11-bea1-281878bd96c0. It’s place where the product group collects suggestions from users to improve the features of this product. Thanks in advance!

I was looking for exactly the same. 

No I know the dissapointing answer unfortunately.

 

I Hope the dev team will make it happen,
