Q&A not working for SSAS Tabular 2017 Direct Query after activation

Hi

I've read the documentation on this link. 
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-q-and-a-direct-query 

We're running Power BI reports in Direct Query mode to several Tabulard models on SSAS 2017 14.0.3035.2 (X64) trhough an on-premises gateway.

After activating the tick-box, i'd expect the 'ask a question' button to appear in the 'edit report' view in the service + i'd expect that on the dashboards the Q&A would be available aswel (of course ofter checking the tick-box there also).

Both are not working however.
Is this not supported or am i missing something?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Hi @TomBergmans,

 

Based on my test, as long as we turn on Q&A feature for the SSAS tabular live connection dataset, we can type Q&A question in the related dashboard to create a new tile. In your scenario, please ensure this option is enabled and pin the pin to a new dashboard then test again.

As it's SSAS live connection, Ask a question feature is not supported both in Power BI desktop and Power BI service report edit mode. See: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-qna-in-reports
