I have several reports that use the hierarchy slicer, which were all working fine for months until today. When you try to filter at any node of the hierarchy slicer, all other visuals error out with the "!" cannot display data.
I've found that this only impacts my reports in the Power BI service and Power BI embedded, but the desktop version of the report filters without errors.
I also noticed that if change the Empty Leaf setting to On (default), the filtering works again! However, I really like the ability to turn off the empty leafs as it is a better user experience. Has anyone else had issues after today's update to PBI service/Desktop? If you have reports with the attribute slicer, please test and let me know!
@jppp - If you have any updates, please let me know as well. I really love the custom visual and use it for many clients. I'm also curious if there is support to pass through the of the hierarchy slicer (lowest chosen level) when using the new Drillthrough feature. It doesn't seem to pass the correct context to the drillthrough page.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'll piggyback here. I'm also getting issues with this Slicer, but with how it draws. It appears to draw all of the labels Right Justified. Example below.
EDIT: Clarify this is Microsoft Edge
Correct Display / Current Display
Contents of Hierarchy slicer is blank in Internet Explorer but works fine in Google Chrome.
Works fine in Power BI Desktop, but not in published reports which are accessed via the Power BI on Premises Data Gateway
There is an issue with IE11 causing the visual to be blank and there is a fix on its way.
Also in this new version there is a fix of the levels being right aligned.
@Ross73312: which version of Edge are you seeing this behavior?
I do not see this behavior in the latest version (17.17134)
@Sicilian: The internal selection method has changed with this version. Can you try resetting the current seelction of the slicer and try again? And if it is still not working, can you share an example with me?
Thanks for the response @jppp . The version currently on my machine is below. We have SCCM, WSUS and those styles of programs, so updating is handled by the admins. Hopefully this version is recent enough.
I also experience error with the Hierarchy Slicer in all our dashboards. It works fine in Desktop version, but not when you publish to Poweer BI services. I have tried to re-upload my dashboards and create a new hierarchy slicer, but nothing works.
Same issue here, works in Chrome but not in Internet Explorer. When I edit the report in IE11, the Hierarchy Slicer is even gone in the list with Visualizations.
Update versions: 11.0.51 (KB4074736)
Please fix this asap, this sort of bugs puts the reputation of Power BI on the line in my organization...
We can't click any fields in the hierarchy slicer whatsoever-- tried Chrome, IE, Edge. The only time it works is if we select a field in a hierarchy slicer already expanded.
@jppp I've tried deleting and re-adding the visual, and re-setting/clearing all selections. It doesn't matter which node I choose, it will always cause all other visuals to error out with "Cannoy display visual."
It works 100% as expected in the Desktop. It only works in PowerBI.com when I have the Empty Leaf Setting to ON, which will show all the Blanks at each level, but allows the filtering to work correctly. I also noticed the carrots/arrows are missing from certain root nodes. For example, the category with a 7 should have > expander option pictured below. This is from Chrome.
Let me know what other details you need.
