Paginated Report with Tabular Model source and a parameter included - PARAMETER WONT WORK



Created a paginated report (pointing SSAS Tabular Model format) in Visual Studio 2017 (for SQL Server 2008 / 2012 / 2014 version) and deployed to our PowerBI Report Server site. report is visible as paginated report and runs fine with data source set up correctly. 159 page report with page break by one of the groupings.


Reproduced and included Parameter from the MDX source and parameter wont work in Visual Studio - it will render the report but not filter by the parameter I may select - still produced 159 pages.


Deployed to PowerBI Report Server and report works, parameter accepted in manage report settings but again, when running the report, parameter will not work when I select an individual - still produced 159 pages. 


Please advise if me or whether a bug which Microsoft need to address?

We are producing paginated reports using DAX from a SSAS Tabular model and they seem to wokr, though frankly the DAX involved makes my brain hurt.


We have produced parameterised MDX reports in the past from MD cubes as opposed to Tab models and those also seem to wokr though params and MDX are frnakly a complete pain and fraight with all manner of issues. have you confirmed the MDX works with the parameter in an SSMS MDX query window onto the tab model?
