With this new version i am having a random issue with scheduled updates.


It is saying that "No credentials where found on the datasource" even though they are correct (SQL Server)




It happened a few years ago and it was solved adding a line in the config file, but this is already in place but the problem has arised again...


The most strange thing is that the issue happens randomly with no explanation.....


I´ve been waiting for 1 month now for a new build that might fix this but nothing new...

Can you check that???

Thank you for reporting the issue really good thanks for sharing


Unfortunately this was not the final solution.

It is happening again... It needs to be something else....


Hi again,

I made a workaround that, for the moment seems to work.


The solution posted was editing the config.json file and completing this line under the section AS: 

"restartOnChangesTo": "ASPort,Workspaces.path,Hosting-databaseValidationStatus"


But I found that the following text was added (I assume that also in previous updates) under all sections:


BUT NOT under the section "Management Process"


I added it manually and, so far, it is not returning any error message again...

I´ll keep up with this.

It is a pretty messy issue as it is random and leaves reports here and there outdated. In operational scenarios might create issues....

Hi @v-alipat ,
it looks like there is an aissue with the date slicer when SSAS Multidimensional with live connection is used and a default value to the field over SSAS ( e.g. with head operation) is set. Then the calender is grayed out and nothing can be selected


Any ideas or workarounds ? 
On the June/Jan 2022 - Versions is working without any issues



Hi Bobi, How do you set the default value for the date slicer when SSAS Multidimensional with live connection is used? How do you fulfill a date visual like below when SSAS Multidimensional used?



Best regards,

Hi @RayLei,
 I do set the standard value under Role-->Dimension-->Attribut with the following value:

Hi Bobi,

Kindly thank you for your prompt reply. If set the default value through role permission, user could not choose other date any more, right?


I fullfill dynamic default date throught concept of DateID, 0 always represents today, -1 represents yesterday, 1 represents tomorrow, 2 represents the day after tomorrow, and so forth. In dimension design, using DateID as value column, and use actual date (yyyy-MM-dd) as name column.


Power BI uses dimension value as internal value, thus the defualt date could automatically changes when actual date changing.


Just for your reference.

Hi @RayLei ,

on the January 2022 version is possible to select another date over the date slicer i.e. the default value filters the data initally once the report is opened and loads it for the current date ( today) and then the user can select another period. Here is a screenshot from my report:


I'm pretty sure it was possible on the june 2022 version, too. I cannot verify it right now. Definately it is not working on January 2023 version, since the dates are greyed out

Hi @Anonymous , 


The link is correct, probably it took a bit longer to get updated in your region? Could you please try again, or refresh the page. January 2022 used to be on that page before, but now it is January 2023 release there 🙂
