New "EVALUATEANDLOG" - need help to capture it in SQL Server Profiler

Hello team, 

 

By the official blog, "EVALUATEANDLOG" can be captured using SQL Profiler. However, I searched all events, can only find "Query Begin/End", the "Dax Evaluation Log" event is nowhere to be found. At the meantime, I was able to capture Eval result using a 3rd party tool "DAX Debug Output", so I know my query is working. 

 

Could someone please point me to the right direction? Thanks in advance!

 

My system: Power BI Desktop (Nov. 22) + SQL Svr Profiler (15.0.18424.0; also shown as v18.12.1)

Hi @QC ,

 

Based on my testing, you need to check this "DAX Evaluation Log"option before running, you can find it by clicking on "Show all events" and "Show all columns".

Thanks stephen! I followed your advice it is working now!

 

What I found it that: 

- "Dax Evaluation Log" option seems to be missing from SSP template, that's why if I choose to open SSP by clicking on "External Tools" inside PBI, and then try to modify the template, I couldn't find the option. Not sure why, maybe b/c this is a new function that MS hasn't added it to the template options yet? 

 

-  If I open a new trace, and connect to PBI manually using local port, the option is available at start
