Power BI service relative local dates streaming dataflow

I'm using Premium per capacity P1 in Power BI and have a streaming dataflow.
Before the data enters Power BI, I convert the date in the Stream Analytics job from UTC to EET. This works fine.
But if you apply a relative date to the visualization, then the time is changed to UTC.
I found out that Power BI service only uses UTC.

Power Query is not applicable to Streaming dataflow source DirectQuery.
I can't create a column in convert. I can't apply DAX expression.
How can I use local time in Power BI service local time?
Please advise.

I added the time as UTC in Stream Analytics and filtered on this column for the last 5 minutes.
The data is displayed for the last 5 minutes of EET.2022-02-04_101849.png

Hi, @diex ;

Current power bi service only support UTC datetime.

On Power BI Service, the now() function will return the UTC time. We can't set the time zone on Power BI Service. To get the correct local time, we can add time different in your DAX formula, or use Power Query to get the local time zone datetime(Since this is DQ mode, it is not considered). For more details, please see: Solving DAX Time Zone Issue in Power BI.

 

This has been a issue has been raised many time, you can vote and comment the below idea submitted by other user, so Power BI team can update that issue asap.
