Power BI Desktop crashes frequently when I Manage Relationships

I've connected PBD to a local MySQL database and brought in 7 tables with a total of 100 columns. When I try to Manage Relationships (PBD gets them 100% wrong) PBD crashes most of the time. There's nothing unusal about the data or the foreign keys between tables, they follow the standard RoR convention, e.g. a "user_id" integer key in a table points to the user record with that id.

 

Any known fix or workaround? Anybody else have this problem?

 

I'd like to use PBD instead of Qlik or Tableau because the pricing is great but it's not reliable with the MySQL data I'm using.

 

Thanks,

John

First, make sure you are on the latest build of Power BI Desktop, I have worked with it with MySQL and have not seen these issues.

 

Second, go to File | Options and settings | Options

 

Under CURRENT FILE

 

You can uncheck the options to automatically try to detect the data sources and import relationships from data source. Might solve your issue and you can just manually create the correct relationships.

I've had the same issue with it constantly crashing when selecting/unselecting checkboxes in "Manage relationships". Tried turning off auto-detect but it still persists. Is it the complexity of my data that's causing this?
