PowerBI Service - Drill Thru options not visible on the interactive power BI Dashboards

Hi All

 

I just noticed the Drill Thru options not visible on the interactive Dashboards ( i.e., on the live report pages pinned to the dashboards)

 

Anyone having the same problem?

 

@Admin

 

Please look into it. Thanks !

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft

 

Thanks for your response.

 

With your answer, I could still hope that we can see drillthru after a while.

 

@ All

As of now, Whoever is facing such problem please try this way:

 

From the dashboard ( ONLY live report page pinned to dashboard), click on open menu (...) on top right

then choose "Go to Report" option, that will allow user to browse the underlying report with drill options ON.

 

Thanks!

In my case, I have attached a live report to the dashboard. It consists of visuals with drill up and drill down functionality.

 

On the dashboard, When right clicked on the visual, it pops up a small window with options "See Records", "See Data", "Drill Up", "Drill Down", and "Expand All"

 

I have demonstrated this functionality to my business and they were happy using it for past one month.

 

Today business reported that the options are not visible. I just checked and confirmed that the drill options are not popping up when right clicked on the visual.

 

Anyone from powerbi tool team should be able to say if there is any change happening at the backend.

 

@Admin

am eagerly looking for the solution as there is so much of work in queue and now we dont want these kind of problems.

When a live report page is pinned to dashboard, the interactions between the visuals is active. On such dashboard, Drill functionality will be ON but we dont see the arrows in the visual. Instead, a right click on the bar of the visual gives the options as shown in the image. Now, right click on bars is not giving these options.

 

I hope my question is clear now. I am assuming there could be a change taking place at the backend. Please if anyone is familiar with this issue let me know.

Hi @anithat,

 

Based on my test, the Drill Down etc options are not available in the live page pinned to the dashboard currently.

 

I have reported this issue internally, will keep you update once I get any feedback.

@Vicky_Song , @v-qiuyu-msft

 

Could you please provide an update on this issue.

 

I have given a demo on using the Drillthru on Dashboards to users, After around 10 Users from various regions accross the globe using that dashboard for a month, they are ready with a proposal to dev more such dashboards in sales & Finance areas of Qantas Airways. We convinced them that microsoft is looking into the issue and get back to us with a fix.

 

Now, should I tell them that this option works no more??

 

Thanks!
