Unknown property in EditorSettings file - PBIP Dataset

Hello!

 

I have this report that I saved as a pbip in order to do some version control but I noticed an unkonwn property was added to the Dataset folder at .pbi\editorSettings:

{
"version": "1.0",
"parallelQueryLoading": true,
"relationshipImportEnabled": true,
"shouldNotifyUserOfNameConflictResolution": true
}

 

Not sure how this was defined but it was creating a problem where another user, a colleague who cloned the repo and tried to open the report file, it brought an error because of this property

 

Error Message:
An error occurred while trying to open 'C:-------.pbip': Error while reading C:----------.Dataset\.pbi\editorSettings.json. DatasetEditorSettings:
Property 'shouldNotifyUserOfNameConflictResolution' has not been defined and the schema does not allow additional properties. Path 'shouldNotifyUserOfNameConflictResolution', line 5, position 45.

 

We had to delete that line from the file and then it worked , but I found no information about the property here powerbi-desktop-samples/item-schemas/dataset/editorSettings.md at main · microsoft/powerbi-desktop-s... . 

 

Anyone know how this was defiend or how can we prevent this property for showing up?

Thanks for the feedback.

Could you please confirm whether your colleague has the same Power BI Desktop version as you?

The 'shouldNotifyUserOfNameConflictResolution' property was added in the September Power BI Desktop release. If your colleague has an older version, it won't recognize the property and will encounter the error you described.

Hello Rui! 

Yes, just confirmed with my colleague and indeed their power bi version was the september 2023 version

 

That also explains while other colleagues could open it with no problem, they had the octover version. 

 

Thank you for the reply!
