Hey MS, are you on track for release of PBI Report Server in January 2019?

Just checking...

Happy Holidays!

Power BI RS and PBIDesktopRS, Jan 2019 now available.



Sorry for the confusion, there was an error in the release notes and it caused some concern with folks, but as you’ve seen, the release went out and there’ll be a blogpost in the AM released covering off on the new functionality in detail!

Does someone want to post out something as a top level thread? To make the links easier to find ?

Ok, it's out now... but maybe one day soon, PBI RS gets released without breaking major features... let's all hope!


As per this official article, a update of Power BI report server will be released in January 2019. Please have a check in January 2019, your patience is appreciated.

Well we are end of January, and still no release  ???

I am not holding my breath. The fact that nobody has said anything at all is a bit troublesome...

Wasn't RLS meant to be in PBIRS Jan19? Now its Sept19? 

What???? Where did you see that? It still January on the official release site:

Official Docs still say January 2019 (Link)Screenshot.png




The documentation at states January 2019 update but all links on the page and later graphic still indicate August 2018. The download link in Report Server still takes you to August 2018 version...

So are they now actually cancelling the JAN Release and waiting until May? So much for using NOV Desktop, by the time we get the May update the next Desktop version will be out and obsolete for us On Prem users.


Way to inspire confidence MS

Would just be nice if we could get a straight answer from them on this thread. 


Is the next release due in Jan 2019 as previously stated?


What features will be in the next release?



We've been waiting for RLS to be implemented for what seems like forever and we were banking on it being in the next release due this month.

The Power BI Happy New Year Blog Post says the following below the video:

This month we will have a Power BI Report Server update only, but starting February, Power BI Desktop will continue our monthly ship cadence. Looking forward to an even more impactful 2019!

 I am still hopeful that we are getting a release this month.

Well we are mid-January, and still no release and no dates either. So ???

Yeah I am also bumping this. We all knew it was to be released in Jan, but without any word from them we are left in the dark.


We are around 2 weeks out till the end of the month and no word on release date at all. Maybe just a quick response from the team would be great so we can plan accordingly.


I have several folks chomping for this upgrade as they started using the NOV 2018 release and were unable to upload their files into the AUG 2018 Server and didn't want to waste another week in developing the files on the older version of Desktop.
