Power BI Template not saving all properties

I have noticed today (June 2023 version) that some measures, relationships and sort by columns are not being saved to the PBIT file.  I have tried several times and ased a colleague to do the same and we get the same results.

Status: Accepted

Hi @all,


We have seen on the internal platform that other engineers have reported this issue and submitted it.
The engineers on the product team are now aware and will do their best to resolve the issue.


This issue has been addressed and will be available in the next release of Desktop. No clearly ETA for now.

I will update here if there is any progress, so please be patient.


Best regards.

@v-xiaoyan-msft I'm also facing this issue on version 2.119.986.0 (July 2023)

I have a similar problem. When saving my report as a .pbit-file and ask my colleague to open the file, at least the following are changed:

- All relations are gone

- Hidden columns are unhidden

- Surrogate keys (columns) are formated as a sum

... and probably other stuff.


I assume this relates to this issue.


@v-xiaoyan-msft any news on this?
