Find unused measures from shared dataset

Hello,

 

I have a published (shared) dataset in the service, and approx 10 reports connected to, all published in different workspaces. What would be the best approach to discover unused measures and columns across all reports connected to this dataset?

 

Many thx.

regards,

Jan

Hi @JuanSombrero ,

 

For your description, the reports created based on the dataset are independent. They simply use the same dataset. The only way to see the created measures is to open each corresponding report and see the created measures.

If you want to edit a new measure, you can connect to the powerbi dataset in the desktop, create it, and publish it again.


Best Regards,
Henry

Hi! @JuanSombrero 

 

This would be intersting to know for me as well. I'm not aware of any such approach. There is no way to know which measures orcolumns are being used across the report. Apart from manually reviewing them in pbix.

 

If my response has successfully addressed your question or concern, I kindly request that you mark this post as resolved. Additionally, if you found my assistance helpful, a thumbs-up would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

I am aware of tools and techniques doing it for a single workbook, it's the single dataset/multiple workbooks that makes me raise this question...
