I just started working with R Script in the Power BI stack. I've created some test projects in the Power BI desktop, and I've published some of them to the BI service. For example, I have some data plotted on a world map and a bar chart with just a count of the values by country.
In Power BI desktop the filters and cross-filtering work as expected (i.e. if I click on China in the bar chart the map is filtered accordingly). When I publish this file to the BI service and try the same interactions in the web browser, nothing happens. The same is true if I just try to use the report filters.
Are R Script Visuals not yet supported in the BI service? I understand that this is still in preview mode. I'm just interested in knowing if I'm doing something incorrectly.
My understanding is that R is not currently supported online; only in desktop mode. However; you may be able to work around this by using one drive as your data source. Put your PBI desktop in one drive; on a system with R installed and then Get Data-> Files -> One Drive. I havn't tried it but it may be worth a shot.
Sorry it didn't work; i'm hoping when it gets out of Preview that R will be available online. It would be nice to have 2016 SSRS reports; forcasting in R and PBI reports working in the same space. The other way MS might go is to bring in azure ML as the integration online for forecasting and R is only local. Should be an interesting year.
