Hidden fields are visible in Power BI service (in Fields panel)

In Power BI Desktop, I have fields that are hidden.  I have the option to "view hidden" in the Desktop, but I am saving with the fields still hidden.  I then publish to the Power BI service / workspace.  When viewing the report in the Power BI service, all hidden fields are visible in the Fields panel when in Edit mode.  They should be hidden, and have been hidden in the past, and there is no way to toggle "view hidden" in the service, so unable to re-hide.  I tried publishing the report with the hidden fields showing or still hidden; in both cases they remain visible in the Power BI service.

 

I believe this is a bug.  Hidden fields are no longer being hidden in Edit mode in the Power BI service.

We're seeing the same issue across multiple tenants. This is a critical issue as it impacts external user ux in a major way.

Same here, not good!!!

 

I submitted a critical ticket, it's incredibly unprofessional to suddenly expose all of our user base to hidden fields.

Same here. Just yesterday when I hid fields and tables on Power BI Desktop they wasn't shown on Power BI Service and Power BI dataset, now it is all shown

Interesting. I see the same thing. No distinction between hidden and visible fields. Everything is shown.
