SSAS Connection and url filters

Hey,

 

In a report i was using URL filters and it was working great, so i tried implementing it on a report using SSAS connection. And somehow it doesnt work. i've tried multiple filters to get it right, but non work.. Example:

?filter=Booking/Booking0x20ID eq '7793'

?filter=Booking/Booking_x0020_ID eq '7793'
?filter=Booking/Booking ID eq '7793'
?filter=Booking ID eq '7793'

?filter=Booking_x0020_ID eq '7793'

?filter=Booking0x20ID eq '7793'

all doesnt work. My Power BI looks like:

Re: SSAS Connection and url filters

I got it working, the issue was: 

in SSAS the ColumnID is called Booking Code. But it has a translation to Booking ID. So in power bi i get ID. but the filter should be on Booking/Booking Code to work.

Thanks for all the help tho! 😄

@EricHulshof 

Is Booking ID field type text? If not remove the colon from the value.

 

Example: 

?filter=Booking/Booking_x0020_ID eq 7793

Re: SSAS Connection and url filters

Unfortuniatly this also does not work, but i think it is because it is not type text.

I tried using a different field of type text and that works. 
hmm, now i wonder why the ID doesnt work

As per this link, Field type has to be a string. Maybe SSAS live source not yet supported the whole number in the URL filter feature.

Re: SSAS Connection and url filters

Yes but that also sais it cant have spaces and that is already fixed. Might be that it still has to be a string tho. But according to the other link that is not the case.

Re: SSAS Connection and url filters

HI  @EricHulshof 

I have tested on my side, it works well. 

This is my url

?filter=Table/ID eq 7793

Result:

and i think this should work in your report:

?filter=Booking/Booking ID eq 7793

 

and I wonder what is the data type of [Booking ID]?

Re: SSAS Connection and url filters

I tried that too, i figured out the data type is registered as a BigInt in SSAS. I used this with a string and that works:
?filter=Portfolio%2FPortfolio_x0020_Code%20eq%20%27CODE%27

But that ofcourse is a string and not an BigInt..

Also i do see this when i use:
?filter=Booking%2FBooking_x0020_ID%20eq%207793
