Barcode scanned but not filtering the report

Hi All,

I tried to test the barcode reader functionality of Power BI and I might missing something.

I read the following article and followed the steps:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/transform-model/desktop-mobile-barcodes

Now when I scan the barcode the report is automatically found, because this is the only report in my Workspace with a Barcode Category, however the repot is not filtering to the scanned item.

Now strangely the barcode filter icon is not coming up either for Filtered or non-Filtered.

 

The barcode is a 128Code.

I added the barcode field as a Report Filter and I also added the Barcode field to the visuals.

 

I might missing a set up on my report.

Please can someone advise on this issue?

 

Thank you.

Re: Barcode scanned but not filtering the report

Hey @Sneider ,

 

Can it be that the report IS filtered by it does not show up in the filter pane? the app has a known limitation of not showing the barcode in the fitler pane, but report itself is filtered.

Can you double-check that please?

 

If this is not the issue, can you please send us email to mpbisup@microsoft.com, with the following: 

1) platform details (iOS, Android)

2) app version

3) PBIX report file with demo data 

 

Thanks, Maya
