Hide from Navigation Option in New Navigation Builder prevents report from loading

I have a report which links to a second more detailed report using filters passed in the URL. So for instance my main report allows a user to filter open cases to find ones they want to look into. To get more information about a case, they click a link in the table which opens a new tab containing a second detail report which is filtered using a Case Number. For instance, the URL looks something like this:


DetailReportURL?filter=Cases/CaseID eq 12345


This has worked great. However, I recently enabled the New Navigation Builder and I was delighted to find the "Hide from Navigation" option. Since the only time someone should access my detailed report is from my main report, I selected this option so the detailed report doesn't appear in the navigation menu. I couldn't be happier, except that now, when any of the users click a link to open the detailed report Power BI hangs on the "Building your app..." screen. If I uncheck the "Hide from Navigation" option it works fine again. I tried assigning it to a section, removing it from a section, checking and unchecking the hide box, deploying and re-deploying the app, all to no avail.


I also tired clearing the browser caches and logging in and out but that also doesn't appear to yield any result.


Incidentally, when we initially turned on the New Navigation Builder it wouldn't function in Google Chrome until we cleared our browser caches. I'm curious if anyone else has had the same issue. (It would expand and collapse the navigation menus just fine, but clicking the items didn't actually navigate you anywhere.)

Re: Hide from Navigation Option in New Navigation Builder prevents report from loading

Hi @bpaynetrain1 ,

I think this should more related to feature update, power bi service seems remove permissions if you hide these report. So you can't use navigation link to access specific contents because of permissions reasons.

Re: Hide from Navigation Option in New Navigation Builder prevents report from loading

So in what circumstances would I want to use "Hide from Navigation"?  If I don't want a given report included in the published app, there's a toggle for that in the Workspace reports list.  This seems to be a setting which allows a report to be published but inaccessible to users.  What possible purpose does that serve?  Am I completely missing the point of how this feature is supposed to be used?
