Editing in Power BI Service



I have a report published from PBI desktop to service. In service, I edited one of the pages of the report and saved it. After about 1-2 weeks the change I made in service disappeared. Did anybody else experience this issue? I downloaded the pbix file again and made the changes in desktop because I was afraid it will happen again if I edit in service. 

I do want to mention that I have not republished the report again, so that should not be the problem. The only thing I have done, was open the desktop file (that does not have the change I implemented in service). This file has a live connection to the dataset, not sure if that may have impacted anything.


Hope somebody can help 🙂

That certainly sounds odd and something that should not be happening. What was the change made in the Report?


I would try to reproduce it on a consistent basis. If you can, then you should bring the issue to the attention of Microsoft. As it stands now it is possible, however unlikely that someone else had the original PBIX and published it?

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...

Ok that's a start. I added another visual, nothing too fancy.


Ok thanks, I will. Very unlikely, as I am the one responsible for that very task. However, I asked my colleagues if it happened by accident but nobody looked at it (since they are also don't have access to the file).

hi  @melpop 

That certainly sounds odd, if there is no one republish the report or edit it in power bi service, it should not change.

I would suggest you to see audit log to see if someone have done something on it.
