No known issues. Power BI is running smoothly.

Awareness

Users trying to access shared reports that they have access to may intermittently get the "Request Access" page instead. As a workaround, users can refresh the page which should display the report. Engineers are working on a fix and we will provide an ETA soon. Next update @ 9/28/18 at 1:00 PM PDT

Customers who have Power BI reports that are stored in and refreshed from OneDrive and contain organizational store custom visuals can become corrupted when they refresh. Affected reports will fail to open.

Workarounds:
- Upload the pbix file directly to Power BI (instead of using OneDrive)
- Replace the org store custom visual with one from the custom visual marketplace, or one manually downloaded, and then republish the report
- If the org store visual is not being used on any pages, delete it from the report and republish

Engineers are working on the fix and expect it to be deployed to production by end-of-day 9/28. Next update @ 9/24/18 at 11:00 PDT.

Customers using the Power BI embedded javascript API may receive an error while setting or getting page-level filters or visual-level filters. As a workaround, customers can pass in any filter object in load config. Engineers have developed a fix and are targeting deployment to be completed by end-of-day 9/23. Next update @ 9/24/18 at 6:00 PM PDT.

Customers using relative date slicers will have problems when trying to change the time period value (e.g. weeks, months) using their mouse. As a workaround, users can use the keyboard to select the desired time period and press enter. Engineers have developed a fix and expect it to be deployed by end-of-day 9/23. Next update @ 9/24/18 at 6:00 PM PDT

Some Power BI users directly accessing a dashboard in a workspace with read-only permissions are unable to post comments. Engineers have developed the fix and expect it to be deployed by end-of-day 9/28. Next update @ 9/28/2018 at 6:00pm PDT

Customers, using the IE11 browser, will experience browser crashes when interacting with reports that contain column charts. As a workaround, customers can use a different browser. Engineers have developed the fix and expect it to be deployed by end-of-day 9/23. Next update @ 9/24/2018 at 6:00 PM PDT

Customers may have problems using Javascript APIs to set the slicer value. As a workaround, customers can pass any filters array in report load configuration (empty filters array works as well). Engineers are working on a fix and expect it to be deployed by end-of-day 9/28. Next update @ 9/26/18 at 6pm PDT.

Customers using Safari or the Power BI mobile app on devices running Apple iOS 10 will have issues rendering Reports. As a workaround, customers can update their device to iOS 11 or 12 (if supported). Engineers are working on a fix and will have an ETA soon. Next update @ 9/28/18 at 06:00 PM PDT.

Top issues and questions

  1. What if my data isn't up to date?

    If your dashboards or reports aren't showing your latest data, here are some things to check.

    • Make sure you've set up refresh.
      Follow these instructions to set up scheduled refresh or start a one-time "refresh now".

    • Is your data stored in OneDrive?
