Has anyone encounter or tried using field parameter feature in PBIRS with latest (Version: 1.17.8546.6252(build 15.0.1112.41), Released: May 26, 2023) updates. Does the field parameter dynamically change using multiple calculated measures or field categories in PBIRS. As prior to recent updates, the field parameter feature only worked in desktop and cloud workspace. Let us know if this fearture is available in latest updates and how it is going.

Good news, however it would be very useful to specify what the bug fixes are in the Desktop, and if there are any enhancements.

Once I updated Power BI report server to this last update (May 2023), reports can not dispaly when the browser language is RTL> I posted the ticket as below

Hi @Abdullah10, thank you for reporting the issue! Passed it to dev team, and we will keep you updated about ETA for the fix.  

No surprises

When can I support exporting matrices? Next year?

This needs to be a feature ASAP - a lot of our users request this feature and to offer a rdl report to get this feature is ridiculous.

Microsoft updates the limitation at the bottom of this page.

It's really sad.


Honestly? Never. PBIRS will die a slow death.

Microsoft is going for a cloud-first strategy, that's ok, in large enterprises we don't need the latest features immediately (due to slower adoption in enterprises). But I'm afraid of a cloud-only strategy.
In large enterprises, it's typically not possible to move all workloads to the cloud for a number of reasons (limited size (compared to unlimited SSAS vs limited PBI Premium), security constraints, or cost).

We use both the on-premises (MSSQL+SSAS+PBIRS) and Power BI cloud service, and it's not possible to move to the cloud only. Also, independent studies such as Gartner MQ criticize Power BI for poor on-premise support in large enterprises.

We need long-term and strong support on-premises BI solutions like Power BI RS or SSAS.

Sad but true 

Whether to use the cloud version is the company's decision,

However, the functionality of the local deployment version is so outdated,

This makes us angry and helpless

Some companies do not want certain information in the cloud and thus we are punished by a crippled version of a great software.  Other options will be chosen if this continues.

We are also, and we are already selecting other products
