New Idea

We track dashboard usage metrics for accountability in our organization.  We've noticed that some viewers' activity is not being tracked in the usage metrics report.  Their views do not show up in usage metrics for the dashboard view or report view of our presentation.  They have definitely viewed the dashboard -- we've watched them share their screen while looking at it.

Usage metrics not working

Hi,

 

THe usage metrics are coming up as blank for 2 of our reports in the workspace. The reports have been published since Monday (Sep 17) and there is confirmed usage from multiple users since then. The metrics is coming up for one other report in the workspace though.

Service Painfully Slow -- 07/30/2018

Status: New
by kcantor Super Contributor on ‎07-30-2018 05:37 AM

Reports are extrememly slow to load. The models refreshed but each page takes nearly a full minute to load or time out while loading the visuals.

Hi Team, 

 

We have a massive issue with the new August 2018 release. We have report server Version 1.2.6690.34729 (March 2018) installed and more than 100 users using the platform. We considered upgrading to August 2018 (Version 1.3.6816.37243) but had to rollback imediately as reports wouldn't load unless every user delete their cache (Browser Data). Given the amount of users we have this is just not a viable nor professional solution.

 

Are you guys working on a patch solution for this problem in the August 2018 version? Could you please confirm if we won't have another option but to clean up ever users cache after this upgrade or future upgrades?

 

Thank you, 

August release: Refresh never completes

Status: New
by xerxel Frequent Visitor on ‎08-17-2018 03:33 AM

Model works and refreshes in July release. Tried in August release on two machines and refresh never completes. Model contains links to Sharepoint online and SFDC. Sharepoint data loads slowly and SFDC never completes. Model includes custom functions.

 

How can we debug the difference between August vs July of the exact same model?

Bug in python visual

I cannot plot data using python. Seems like a localisation problem, comma is used instead of full stop as a decimal separator in a matplotlib function.

We just got premium capacity and I created an app with a report added to it, using the premium settings AND gave app access to the entire organization.

 

Then I used the "embed in sharepoint" option as we want to share the report across the organization via SharePoint.

 

But unless I explicitly give someone access to the REPORT AS WELL, then only see the "content is unavailable" warning on the sharepoint page.

 

So my question: Is there a way to give access for ALL to the report, as I can't add them as individual members or is there another setting in the app setup that I am missing?!?

 

I tried this with a new (preview) app and an app created from an existing office 365 PUBLIC group and neither allow viewing of the report in SharePoint.

 

I've read lots of articles about this and seems to come down to the access to the report, but surely there must be a way to do this for everyone?

Power BI Service and Desktop are down

Our company's users are unable to connect to Power BI via the Service or Desktop this morning. I submitted a ticket to Microsoft support but I wasn't sure if it was isolated to our premium servers or all of the service.

 

My internal O365 ticket number is 10791650 and the error message is below.

 

Something went wrong.

Hi,

 

I am using Power BI Professional in the UK and finding that the display of published dashboards on the web is very slow compared to the normal experience. Is anybody else having this issue? All the other websites I commonly visit pop up quicly so I dont think it is my internet connection,

 

regards

Dear Power BI Team,

 

I'd like to send you an issue for Power BI Report Server in a scale out scenario.

 

When a Report is updated by a scheduled refresh plan it looks like only report server which is executing scheduled refrech plan is going to update model of report and other report server within scale-out deployment is going to use old modle data.

 

Scheduled-Refresh.PNG

Scheduled refresh plan for every 15 minutes.

 

Scale-Out1.PNGScale-Out2.PNG

After scheduled refresh plan was executed at scale-out server 1, you will notice a difference between both systems because model is only updated at server 1.

 

Refresh_log_1.PNG

You will notice that within Power BI Report Server log, that only at server where sheduled refresh is executed model refresh is logged.

 

In my optinion if a scheduled fresh is planned for a report model update should be forced at all servers that report is going to show same data at all scale-out deployment systems.

 

Current work-a-round:

Model-refresh.PNG

I've set Model expiration and recyle to each a value of 1 minutes, so that model should be "refresh" each minute.

But this causes another issue at Web Portal, so it's only a work-a-round.

 

Refresh_error.PNG 

By setting value to 1 minute and accessing a report model is OK by entering report, but if I execute "Refresh" within report where model was recycled in background it will result in an error of all visuals of report.

 

Please take a look that this issue.

 

Many thanks

Daniel

While doing a very simple operation that has worked for me in the past countless times, I ran into a bug when using Power BI and a live connection to a Tabular model.

 

It seems that when multiple relationships have been created on a datefield, and you have used the USERELATIONSHIP function, it will not always work properly in Power BI - Live Connect. The bug only happens in this combination:

Power BI - Other sources = Expected Behavior

Power BI - Live Connection SASS Tabular = Bug

Excel - Other sources = Expected behavior

Excel - Connection SASS Tabular = Expected behavior.

 

As a result, I cannot include an example file (as it will work properly in that case and the bug will not show). I did fake the situation in Excel, show you can show what I mean:

Hello,

 

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 https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/devices

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?

Hi,

 

I've noticed that after PBIRS August 2018 Update transparency of data labels are not working on Power BI Report Server. Everything is fine on desktop version but when I save the file on server then I'm losing background and transparency of data labels. Please have a look at the print screen below.

August update - memory issue?

Status: New
by LCH Occasional Visitor on ‎08-17-2018 01:17 AM

Since installing the 64bit August update of Power BI desktop, I'm really struggling to update any of my reports. The memory usage spikes as soon as the application is launched and stays at 98-99%. Even trying to change a column name freezes or crashes the application. I am using a small data set on a computer with 8GB of RAM.  Had to uninstall and go back to the June version.

 

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

So, I turned Composite Models preview feature on yesterday to review it. I got the top two errors on my imported tables.

I turned it off and restarted PBID and refreshed all. Then, I got the third error on a different table. I also continue to get the error on the other table.

 

 

 

Bug in Editing Titles on Visuals

Status: New
by Shelley Member on ‎07-16-2018 07:59 AM

There appears to be a bug that's driving me crazy. It seems to be every time I go into the title of a visual and want to delete characters, it deletes the who visual. Here's exactly what seems to be happening. For example, I have a KPI visual. I want to edit the title, so I hit the paint roller, scroll down and click into the Title Text box and arrow over to the characters I want to delete. I hit the delete key to try to delete half the text. When I click the delete key once, it deletes one character, and then takes my cursor out of the Title Text box! When I hit delete again to delete the remaining characters, it now deletes the entire visual. This happens all the time with the latest release because it's natural to hit the delete key multiple times to delete multiple characters. As you can imagine, this is frustrating and inefficient. (Incidentally, I just discovered, if I use the backspace first and then the delete key, hitting the delete key more than once does not take me out of the Title Text box and actually works as imagined).
