Report was created with recent version of Power BI Desktop that is not yet supported by this server

Hi,

 

Recently updated to the October version of Report Server (server and client). I'm able to create new reports without an issue, including saving to the report server. I am not able to publish existing reports back to the server though. I receive the generic "an error occurred while attempting to save the report to power bi report server" from inside PowerBI, and "We're not able to upload this report. The report was created with a recent version of Power BI Desktop that is not yet supported by this server." when trying to upload the existing report from a local copy. 

 

Confirmed both server and desktop client are the new one (client has the new logo with the RS in the corner).

 

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello

I had the same issue: Cannot save/upload reports modified with PBI Desktop Version: 2.86.961.0 64-bit (October 2020)

For me, the problem was solved by disabling the preview feature "Store data set using enhanced metadata format".

Not sure if this is a bug or something needs to be enabled/configured at the server side.

Just wanted to provide an update to this thread, we released a new build of Power BI Report Server yesterday which fixed issues that had the same effect as the one described here.  In case you still experience problems after the upgrade, I suggest to open a separate thread specific for that issue so we can better track. Feel free to tag me directly in those as well.

 

You can find more details about the update in this thread:

Ok, @gboreki ...Have an update.  I got a complex Temp Table filled query to run, but only when it is the only SQL Query.  Any workbooks with multiple SQL Queries fail with similar to above error messages.

Calling stored procedures with temp tables inside also causes this error.

Hi Blair,

 

Thanks for reporting back. We have identified one case where multiple native queries against the same datasource are failing to refresh, this should be fix in our first servicing release for October 2020. From you repro, just want to confirm if you have a report with a single query using this pattern it also fails to refresh or only for reports that have multiple?

IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#temp_table') IS NOT NULL DROP TABLE #temp_table
select 1 as [Data]
into #temp_table
select * from #temp_table


 Thanks

@gboreki - I sent my other reply before seeing this.. yes it is the "multiple query" issue.. temp table behavior is normal as long as it is the only connection to the datasource.. I have worked around this by doing the JOIN in SQL and having just one connection.

 

Do you have an outline on servicing releases are timed and how they are communicated to the community?  Want to evaluate a near term plan and also don't want to miss out.

 

Thanks for your help.

Ok @gboreki  have some more insight.  When I exclude the query that has temp tables from refresh, the refresh is successful.  

 

To test I created a new query using a pattern that is common in many of my embedded queries

 

IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#temp_table') IS NOT NULL DROP TABLE #temp_table
select 1 as [Data]
into #temp_table
select * from #temp_table

 

 

I also tested a similar syntax and received the error in Report Server (but not on desktop)

 

select 1 as [Data]
into #temp_table
select * from #temp_table

I'm at a point now where errors will no longer show in the UI when I click on the favicon in the below message.

 

Several errors occured during data refresh. Please try again later or contact your administrator.

Hey @gboreki , having a similar issue except this workbook contains no "Enter Data" data.  Just 2 SQL queries to the same datasource.  I have "fixed" another report by reverting to the May 2020 version and not editing in my October 2020 Desktop client, but now I have a this report that was created in October 2020 Desktop.  Do I have any other recourse except for rebuilding the whole report in May 2020?  Is there going to be a fix released at some point soon? I am unfamiliar on the timing of these things, or if we'll have to stick with May 2020 until January?  Thanks for your help

Based on advice in this post, I can confirm the issue was data I entered directly into PowerBI (Via the "Enter Data" datasource). Deleting that info and linking to excel instead allowed the scheduled refresh to work.

Hi,@Mark1764 

 

Please try not to upgrade the new version when it is just released because there are usually potential bugs.

You can now try to download the latest PBIRS again. Although they are all October 2020 versions, remember that their version numbers may be different, which means that new patches will be added later (without any notice).

I just upgraded PBIRS, now I can upload my PBIX file without any error.

 

Mark this post as solution if this helps,thanks!

Re-downloaded both the client and the server from Microsoft's website and both are the same version I had previously. Strangely, some existing files are working, while a few are not.

 

As of this moment (11/2/2020) there is not updated version for the October release. You can always check your changelog which is updated with latest. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/report-server/changelog

 

@Mark1764 , is there anything common to the reports that are not working? Do they continuously fail to upload? And do you know which versions of Power Bi desktop for reportserver was used for those reports?

I´m on the same situation. I can´t upload reports created on old versions on my server installed with Power Bi server October 2020.

 

However, if I create a new simple report with Power BI desktop server, I can upload the report.

 

I have the next message:

2020-11-02 21:24:06.5400|ERROR|35|Failure in reportproperties| RequestID = s_9adad0db-2809-489a-9110-4d5b45e67452 Microsoft.PowerBI.Packaging.Storage.NewerFileVersionException: '1.21' is newer than the product version.

 

Versión: 2.86.961.0 64-bit (octubre de 2020) (desktop server)

Versión 1.9.7604.41261 (Octubre de 2020) (Server)

 

 

Can you clarify which old version are you using? Is it powerbi desktop optimized for reportserver from may release? or something else?

My old version is May 2020 in case of server and Power BI desktop server. With these version, run without problems. Uploading reports and working with normal mode.

 

My problems began with upgrade to October 2020.

 

Operative system --> Windows server 2012

Can you please post here the details from the File/About of the powerbi desktop you are using?

Details for my power bi desktop are:

I´m using Power BI desktop optimized to report server. Versión

 

Versión: 2.86.961.0 64-bit (octubre de 2020)

 

The files are confidential on my business. What do you need I post on the reply? See details on log or pass the file .pbix?

I'm running into another glitch, after I edited an existing report (which allowed me to save back to the report server), scheduled refresh is failing and I am receiving this error: 

[0] -1056505856: COM error: System.Core, Sequence contains no elements.

This report dates back to 2017 and I have not made any structural changes to it. 

 

Prior to the upgrade, I was on the May verson (both client and server)

@Mark1764 Can you provide some details about the report. There are many factors that impact here, what is the datasource type, credential type used. If you are ok in sharing info, exporting the datasource as a pbids file, or your report as a pbit template (which removes) the data would be helpul.

 

Also, can you confirm that when you manage datasources for the report, all the datasources are there, and that credentials were retained.

 

In the meantime, here are a couple of workarounds to unblock refreshing this file. Once you saved your report with october release it was automaticaly upgraded by desktop to the enhanced metadata format, you can find a backup copy of the pbit in your appdata folder: 

C:\Users\<<username>>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Power BI Desktop SSRS\TempSaves\Backups

 

You can continue using May release of desktop for reportserver which will continue saving in the older format.

You can disable enhanced metadata (Menu file/options and settings/options/preview features), note that once the report is stored in the enhanced format, the only way to store in the previous format is by recovering the backup.
