Connecting to Analysis Services from the Power BI Service

Our users create reports in the Power BI service by connecting to our on prem Analysis Services via a live connection. Recently we discovered that connecting to Analysis Services from the Servbice has now been deprecated. Where should I go to keep track of notifications like this and, in particular, where can I find the specific notification of the deprecation of connecting to Analysis Services from the service. We have gotten around this by using published datasets but this was only after the fact and we need to ensure that we are more proactive in addressing this in the future.

OK, where did you see that this has been deprecated? Here are some good resources:

Re: Connecting to Analysis Services from the Power BI Service

Hi, @ashlysmith 

 

Directly connecting to SSAS from Power BI service is deprecated. It is also unsupported to use dataflows to connect to SSAS currently as said in the document . I'd like to suggest you post your new idea in Idea Forum  to improve  Power BI. It is a place for customers provide feedback about Microsoft Office products . What’s more, if a feedback is high voted there by other customers, it will be promising that Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.

 

Best Regards

Allan
