Single Select Slicer: new feature does not publish properly

The new Single Select Slicer feature works fine in desktop, but if you publish and update an existing report where you have switched a multi-select slicer to a singler slicer (i.e. with radio button), the change is not recognised in PBI service. If you re-publish as an entirely new report, however, this works fine.


Please fix this.

I can confirm. After I renamed and published the report, the radio buttons appeared. Bazaar.




I am facing the same issue. Single slicer in desktop gets converted to multi-select in published version.

Has anyone found a solution or workaround?
The following link says clearing browser cache helps, but I tried that too but it did not work.

i'v found the same problem.

setup as single select in the desktop app - but when published it becomes multiselect.

anyone seen a solution to this ? 

its pretty huge bug.



Hi @jkay27 ,

I have asked the PG Team, they replied that this is by design, the new version of "Single Select" enforces a single selection at all time. See blog post to go back to the previous version single select version, which allows zero elements selected and also shows the eraser:

I don't think you're following the issue properly - obviously it's by design that the new version of single select enforces a single selection.


HOWEVER, the issue is that this functionality does not work properly when you publish it from PBI desktop: a multi-select slicer remains in the published version, even when you have changed that existing slicer's type to be a single-select slicer, i.e. the modification made in PBI desktop isn't properly published.
