Paginated Report Parameter issues/broken/not working - Potential BUG! - Cascading Parameters

Hi All,

I've reached the end of my tether and reaching out for help at this point - I have used paginated reports previously for years in its former guise of SSRS so I am aware that what I am trying to achieve is possible (And works exactly as expected in Desktop & Report Builder) - Issues come once the report is deployed to the service, which is where I think I have found a bug.


1 parameter value is passed in from PBI desktop "Cost Centre Source" - everything is then derived from 2 datasets based on the value.


Microsoft I hope you read this!!


From Report Builder cascading prompts working exactly as expected:


From PBI desktop embedded Paginated Report Visual - Also everything working exactly as expected...


From report published to the service everything works as expected on the initial report rendering, once a new cost centre is selected none of the child parameters are updated. 

I would really appreciate any help.

Hi ajohnso2,


Did you figure this out? We recently fixed a bug in the paginated visual where parameters where not posting back correctly. The fix is in safe rollout process and should be in Prod ~3 weeks. As a workaround until it rolls out, this was suggested 1) change the parameters in the RDL to allow multiple values or 2) they can change the parameter mappings on the visual to use an aggregation (such as "First") that will send a single value to the RDL report. 


Hope that helps!

Thanks for the response bradsy, I have implemented a work around for now whereby the paginated report is opened via a URL for now - this means the user is forced to submit the report request with the parameter values embedded in the URL.


I will keep my eyes peeled for your fix roll out - many thanks.




Hi, is there any update to this issue?

Thankyou for your reply - I have attached a very simple .rdl and pbix file. You will see the issue only applies once the reports are deployed to the service and viewed. In PBI desktop and Report Builder the parameter behaviour is exactly as expected with default values automatically updating.





Look forward to your response.
