IncrementalPeriodsOffset

How can I overwrite the IncrementalPeriodsOffset within Desktop? In Power BI service it is possible to do so using 'Tabular Editor', but that is not possible within Desktop.

 

I know that selecting 'Only refresh complete days' will set the IncrementalPeriodsOffset to ' -1'. But how can I change it to (for example) '12'?

Use case: Import changes of the Forecast of the next 12 months.

 

Thanks!

Hi @Pmichel ,

 

You can overwrite the IncrementalPeriodsOffset in Power BI Desktop by using the XMLA endpoint feature. The XMLA endpoint allows you to manage dataset partitions and metadata through tools like SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), Tabular Editor, or Tabular Object Model (TOM).

To use the XMLA endpoint, you need to enable it for read/write operations on a dataset in a workspace assigned to a Premium capacity. Then, you can use tools like SSMS or Tabular Editor to connect to the dataset and modify the IncrementalPeriodsOffset property of the partitions.

 

Please refer to the following documents for more information.
