Power BI web wrong date format displayed


I work with the Web application of Power BI, and i get my datas from Streaming API.

In the json body, i have some String values and a Date Value.

When i create a report based on my streaming data (passed or failled test for each date for exemple ), the date is displayed with the wrong format.


 send that for exemple :

        "failed_test":  15,
        "passed_test":  92,
        "date":  "2023-05-17T12:32:39"
When it's displayed, i have 05-17-2023 12:32:39,
but what i want is a format dd-MM-yyyy hh:mm:ss  -> 17-05-2023 12:32:39

Is there a solution on the web to format the date ?
I tried to set the language but it did nothing.

My location is in france for information, and it's set in the browser and Power BI to French.


Thanks a lot in advance for your help.

Hi @YoanD 

You can try to use format() function to set the format of the date in Power BI Desktop. 

e.g Measure = FORMAT(TODAY(),"dd-MM-yyyy hh:mm:ss")

You can also refer to the following link.

Is it possible to switch between the differente solution of PowerBi to modify date format ? 

And it seems i can't do anything on the desktop version with my streaming data :

Hi @YoanD 

Set the language of displaying Power BI to French, it can work



Select 'General'



Then set the language



and then refresh your report.

I already did those manipulation.
My language is set to browser language, and my browser language is set to french, but it doesn't works
I tried to set language to french in powerBi, and in my browser, too but it doesn't works.
