Embedded 'apply bookmark by state' fails by '/exploration' gives 500 when large semantic model is ON



When try to apply a created bookmark through embedded 'apply bookmark by state' method for the large semantic model enabled report, bookamark is not applied.



/exploration API is failed with 500 and below message.
"code": "NullReferenceException",
"message": "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."


Note:  This is working fine when large semantic model is off for the same report..

Interesting, we have that problem regardless of the "large semantic model" setting on or off. I guess, there is a bug.



Thats interesting @BehrensSCom , Did you received any assistance from Microsoft regarding your issue?

We are currently in the negotiation phase "Are you sure, it is a bug?". I will keep you updated.

The Bookmarks are failing right after these changes are made and we beleive it's a bug (we could able to recreate the issue in PowerBI playground)


And we have made no changes from application side which might cause this issue.

The good news: It is a bug.

The not so good news: Needs time for a fix.


There is currently no fast workaround, but they are working on it.

Will forward this to support. Thank you!
