Disable Auto Relationships Globally


Currently there does not appear to be a feature for disabling the Auto-Detect feature for relationships in PBI Desktop globally on all files. Is there a way to do this that I am not aware of?

Hi @Keegan_Patton ,
This is the only way to disable autodetect relationship globally .
File->Options->Current File->Data Load->Relationships
Uncheck  "Autodetect new relationship after data is loaded"

Thanks ,
