R Script Visuals in Service

This afternoon, I started receiving an "Enable script visuals" button on the notification bar with reports that were published to Service with R visuals included. The R visuals are blank, however. Does anyone else see this behavior, or do the visuals appear correctly?r script.PNGWhereIsTheVisual.PNG

For several days they do not work r scripts to graph charts in web version of power bi while normally operate in version desktop. From Microsoft Support for power bi not have any information. I thought Power BI service very reliable until this happened so that report had been made with the support R Scripting of this time not work and make the product unreliable since there is no and the relative Support from Microsoft

I experience the same problem - when a PBI with R visuals is published to the service, there is a warning about the script and the R visuals are not displayed - the error reported for each visual is "Couldn't retrieve the data for this visual. Please try again later."


Was on a web-ex with MS yesterday and they said R Visuals were currently only available in desktop, not service.  Support for R Visuals in PBI Service was being worked on, but they couldn't say when it would be available.

It was available on Friday, April 15. Today is Monday, R visuals don't work in PBI Service.

@deldersveld I can't see R visuals in PBI service either. I remember sometime ago it used to get displayed but not fileterd. So if you have filters applied to your R visuals in PBI desktop it will work there but not in PBI service. I deleted and re-published my report but can't see visual.
