Don't call this.visualHost.persistProperties in enumerateObjectInstances method since such implementation might cause an infinite update loop if Format Panel is opened.

Are there any exceptions? Can you share the embedded Power BI report to debug it?

To keep data in Power BI you should define a property in objects property of capaiblities.json (documentation).

After that call persistProperties to send settings to Power BI host.

As a result the saved data will be in objects object of metadata.

Hi ,

I folowed this steps but in sandbox mode works well, but when package this visual not works. why?

Help me pls.

my code:

  Capabilities

 "objects": {
        "settings": {
            "properties": {
                "config": {
                    "type": {
                        "text": true
                    }
                },
                "show": {
                    "type": {
                        "bool": true
                    }
                }

            }
        },
        "general": {
            "displayName": "General",
            "displayNameKey": "formattingGeneral",
            "properties": {
                "selection": {
                    "displayName": "Selection",
                    "type": {
                        "text": true
                    }
                },
                "filter": {
                    "type": {
                        "filter": true
                    }
                },      

  method Update:

 this.values = JSON.parse(getValue(this.dataView.metadata.objects, "settings", "config", "No items"));
           let items="";
           this.values.forEach(element => {
                items+=element+"\n";
            });
           
$("#q").val(items);

Enumerate:

 

 public enumerateObjectInstances(options: EnumerateVisualObjectInstancesOptions): VisualObjectInstance[] | VisualObjectInstanceEnumerationObject {
           // return VisualSettings.enumerateObjectInstances(this.settings || VisualSettings.getDefault(), options);
             let objectName = options.objectName;
            let objectEnumeration: VisualObjectInstance[] = [];
         
           

            this.visualHost.persistProperties(<VisualObjectInstancesToPersist>{
                merge: [{
                    objectName: "settings",
                    selector: null,
                    properties: {
                        config: JSON.stringify(this.values) || "{}",
                        show:true
                    }
                }]
            });

            return objectEnumeration;

        }
