Q&A not working in the service



I am working on a report where we want to use the new Q&A visual. Q&A works fine in desktop but after I upload it into the service I cannot ask any question apart from a bare measure.

It seems like if the linguistic schema or some other metadata is not uploaded or corrupted during upload, so any question that requires using the model relationships does not work. The suggested question does not contain anything that would require more than 1 table unlike in the desktop. It works the same with the Q&A in the Dashboard so it is not the new visuals issue.


Hope anyone was able to resolve this issue.


Best regards,

I am having the same issue.


I am working on a report where we are using the Q&A. The Q&A works fine when tested on the desktop file but after I publish it into the service I cannot ask any question apart from a bare measure. The suggested questions only reference a specific report page depending on the question. Any suggested question that points out to a report page is not working and cannot have that page shown when the question is asked.

I found out that asking the question in a different way is still working jsut seems like the "BY" is not recoqnised anymore which is strange. You have to say "AND".Q&A in service - workingQ&A in service - working



I have tested on my end and it is working fine.

Hoping that because of "BY" only it is not worked.
