Does Cross report drillthorugh work for Live Connection as target ?

Hi Experts


I have a source PowerBI file (with Imported Data), I wish to enable cross drillthough feature that passes the fitler to a target PowerBI file that has Direct query connection.  I tried based on the documentations, it works when both the files has import data connection but not for Direct connection. 


Appreciate any form of help!

Hi @kar92thi ,

I'd like to suggest test with same connection mode reports to confirm if this feature only works on same connection mode. (These connection modes has different data storage and process methods)
