Option to create alerts is not available

Hello everyone, 

 

I created a Power BI dashbaord that has custom real-time tiles with data coming from Azure's stream analytics. The dashboard also has some tiles coming from a report based on an Azure SQL Database source that is also updated with some frequency (automated)

The dashboard refreshes fine, and I pubished the Power BI app and everything (is not in my personal workspace, but another workspace), I created the mobile versions and all that, but now I am looking for the option to add alerts, and I don't see it in the Power BI service, nor the Phone. I've looked in the workspace dashboard as well as in the app dashboard, but I don't see it anywhere.


Does any one know if there is another criteria for using alerts besides of:

  • Alerts are currently not supported for Bing tiles, or card tiles with date/time measures.
  • Alerts only work with numeric data types.
  • Alerts only work on data that is refreshed. They do not work on static data.
  • Alerts will only work on streaming datasets if you build a KPI/card/gauge report visual and then pin that visual to the dashboard.

I am using numeric data cards, coming from a real-time source.

Thanks in advance

Hi @wosscr,

 

Alerts can be set on visuals created from streaming datasets that have been pinned from a report to a dashboard, but cannot be set on streaming tiles created directly on the dashboard using Add tile > Custom streaming data.
