Missing / disappeared app in app workspace

Status: New

Over the holidays our app disappeared from the app menu and when accessed via direct link it says: We couldn't install "app name". (status code 400)


At least it's able to translate the ctid (http:// to app name.


I've searched the audit log and no updates / deletions or other activities appeared during second part of December. Btw. searching the audt log is quite tough, I ended up searching the acticities one by another, because when multiple of them were selected, I got 0 results but when just one was selected I got some results...



Whenever the visual is a table that has many entries I'm not able to scroll with the mouse wheel or the keyboard on Firefox.


I'm currently using Firefox Quantum 62.0.3 (64-bit) and the version of Power BI Javascript client is 2.6.5 (also tested 2.5.0 and 2.4.7).


I would also like to show the scrollbar (which is not shown) whenever there are more records on the table than can be shown on the iframe.

I am getting an error "Access to the resource is forbidden" when trying to access Microsoft Graph in Power BI Desktop report.

Microsoft Graph URL is

I am logging in using Organization Account.

I have Global Admin role in the tenant.


The report was working normally for months, but stopped since yesterday.

I even tried creating new one - same result.

Accessing the same URL from Graph Explorer works fine.


What could actually impact this kind of error?

I try to get my table from my dataset in Bigquery into Power BI Desktop. But unfortnately I m getting to follwing error:


DataSource.Error: ODBC: ERROR [HY000] [Microsoft][BigQuery] (100) Error interacting with REST API: Not found: Job first-projec:job_dm6z7i391YiYbOwjL7t-ydZ4V26dd6dfnv8


I tried the following to lose this error:

- Changing this line in the M source code:

Quelle = GoogleBigQuery.Database(null)


Quelle = GoogleBigQuery.Database([BillingProject="Billing-Project-Id"]) 

- I used the Simba ODBC driver as described here : Simba-BigQuery-ODBC-Driver-Quickstart2.pdf


Is this still a bug in Power BI?


P.S: my dataset and google cloud storage are in the same region, europ-west2



Fix the "Data Loading" / "Almost Done" issue

by SMHolck Frequent Visitor on ‎10-02-2018 02:56 PM

Multiple people in my organization are unable to view published apps in our Power BI tenant.  They can sometimes click Apps and then wait for it to load forever.  You see a brief message "Data Loading" followed by "Almost Done."  And it will spin for hours.  My entire company has a Pro license.  The data loads fine in my Power BI desktop.  Issue happens on both IE 11 and Chrome 69.   Good thing I'm not currently doing my presentation on why you should use Azure!AlmostDone.png


I've seen this happen often and on.  You never know when it is going to happen.  My Azure admin says when he logs in to Azure portal it tells him no known outages.



We display PowerBI reports with the Microsoft embed library in a custom web container.
Frequently, report tooltips are not correctly displayed.

As you can see in the screenshot, they take an - apparently fixed, ie 1280 - size, despite having set it up in the builder, both as 'auto' or the desired fixed size of 300ish px.

The report is inside an iframe so I doubt it has to do with the container CSS.


This bug seems to happen on all major browsers (FF, Chrome, Edge) but we never seen it in the pbi desktop app.
How can we ensure the tooltip is displayed as designed in the builder ?

Select query in odata v4 is ignored

Status: Accepted
by agur Frequent Visitor on ‎01-31-2018 04:16 AM

When using $select in the query string for an OData v4 service it is ignored.

For example:

= OData.Feed("https://<org>$select=name,actualrevenue")

This returns all opportunities with ALL fields, not only name and actualrevenue


= OData.Feed("$select=id")

This returns ALL fields, not only group ID


This has a HUGE business impact, as this makes loading data in PBI reports extremely slow. The consensus in the Dynamics 365 environment is to export the data to an Azure database before loading it into PBI, which breaks security hierarchy and makes everything less user friendly.

Status: Accepted

When I push a "Apply changes" button Power BI Desktop reports "This query contains transformations that can't be used for DirectQuery".
But my 'dataSource' query contains only decompression of BASE64 data string into Json data and transformation that into table.
That 'dataSource' query is used from extraction data tables by secondary queries.
If I click on any query from those queries I get a message "This step results in a query that is not supported in DirectQuery mode". When I push button "Switch all tables to Import mode" then It does change anything. I cannot get data into Power BI Desktop.
It is link to my problem file. link to a power bi project with that problem.

I used 2.61.5192.601 version.

I've noticed that the right-click drill-through is no longer working in published reports.     The menu doesn't appear on right-click.      It was working fine last week I believe


It works as expected in Desktop and also PBIS



Many of our users rely on the drill-though functionality to view line level detail


Hopefully it can be corrected soon

Web API data source refresh issue

Status: New
by SowjanyaK Visitor on ‎04-13-2018 01:16 AM

Hi Team,


I have created a web api which validates the http header and gives the response in Json format. I have added this api as a data source for a report in power bi desktop which is working fine. But when i publish the report to it fails the data refresh with an exception "Invalid Credentials" and the configured header value is not available in the data connection. need help in fixing this issue




1. We created a sample report in Power BI Desktop and published in a Premium workspace. The report has been shared with a free Power BI user and the user was able to access the report from this link:

We noticed that the above link opens the report from the "My workspace" (see the 1_Workspace_SharedLink.png) therefore the user is able to see the report. If the user wants to open the report from the workspace where the report was published then the message prompting for a Power BI Pro license is displayed.

2. The report has been embedded in MS Teams and the user was able to access the report there (2_MSTeams_Embedded.png).

3. When user click on "Go to website" in MS Teams the message prompting for a Power BI license is displayed (3_Prompt_ProLicense.png). The url for "Go to website" is We noticed that this link is also used when the workspace is accessed directly from Power BI Service.

The problem is that we would have liked that when user click on "Go to website" in MS Teams, the report to be opened in Power BI my workspace so user to be able to see it from there. Is there any possibility to implement this, or to allow configuration of the link from MS Teams?

Random semicolon in embedded report

Status: Delivered
by austeja Occasional Visitor on ‎09-20-2018 03:38 AM

I've recently noticed that there's a random semicolon in the embedded report's top left corner


I've managed to track down the issue and it seems like there's a random semicolon left between the html tags. I believe this is a bug, a minor one although looks very annoying on the embedded report.

the latest rollout of a new feature (Analytics, Measure Drillthrough) has caused an additional section to show up on our embedded Power BI reports (we are using the filter pane). See screenshot with a dummy report embedded into our application - is there ANY way to disable showing the DRILLTHROUGH portion? It is already confusing our end users because they don't understand what to do with it (and they don't have the ability to "drag drillthrough fields here"). Please help!drillthrough showing in filter pane for end user.JPG

To see the error, just use the Power BI embedded demo site and try to set slicer filters.  Javascript error below. It didn't work most of last week, but then was working Friday.  Now doesn't work again.  I had posted in Developer forum, just re-posting in Issues area.




After making the upgrade from PowerBI Desktop feb 2018 to june 2018 version, i can now no longer see functions in the odata Navigator. It only displays the "tables".

I tested on multiple computers and also with the below public odata service:


You can see in the screenshot left is excel(correct) and right is powerBI(missing functions).
