Automated Testing of Power BI Report Layout

Hi All,

 

Currently manually testing the layout of Power BI report. Eg: size and color of the buttons, alignment, gap between the rows & columns etc

 Is it possible to automate it? If yes, please give the details

 

Regards,

Harika

Hi @chinnah1

 

I don't think such tools exists to check these automatically.

 

You can use Gridlines and snap objects to grid when authoring reports in PBI Desktop to have a less painful experience.

 

 

Thanks & Regards,
Bhavesh

Love the Self Service BI.

Re: Automated Testing of Power BI Report Layout

Hi Bhavesh,

 

Is there any way we can export PBIX file to HTML or XMLA? so we can try access this file and look for properties of objects etc alignment ( x and y axis, font size, color etc)

 

Thanks,

Harika

Re: Automated Testing of Power BI Report Layout

check out https://www.thebiccountant.com/2019/09/14/compare-power-bi-files-with-power-bi-comparer-tool/   which is excel power query app that retrieves report layout information from PBIX converted to PBIT (template) file. The PBIT file can also be manually unzipped using Winzip. The resulting extracted files can be inspected. The comparer tool above does this.
