Absolutely terrible how users have to ask at community forum if Power BI is down!!! This is not the first time I had to check the forum.. no message on PBI twitter, no notification here https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/support/
it says: No known issues: Power BI is running smoothly
Northern Europe appears to have been affected at least once a month for the last 4 months. Each time I've checked the support page to see that there are (apparently) "no issues" only for degradations to be reported hours later that day. I'm stunned that microsoft can't officially report these issues sooner and/or are somehow oblivious to said issues until the community begins to post them. Surely they have means of monitoring the viability of the Northern European service and reporting issues to us in a more efficient manner.
I created a ticket about this yesterday and got the answer this morning, that problem has been solved:
"Our product team has fixed the issue post which the service started working as expected. Also, our product team has taken necessary measures and kept proper checks in place to avoid any similar issues going forward."
Everything seems to be working. I have given feedback to Microsoft, that this kind of unavailability should not happen and when happens, they should be the one noticing it first by proper monitoring and then asap inform users.
