Best practices

Preserve references in Power BI visualizations

Once you create a request, that request will always have the same reference in Power BI. But if you delete a request, the reference will be used by a new request you create for the same dimension.

If you delete a request in your workbook, make sure you do not have a visualization pointing to that request in Power BI, because otherwise the visualization will break.

  • If at all possible, do not delete requests you created in Report Builder
  • Make sure that if you do delete requests on Report Builder, you also delete the corresponding visualization in Power BI.
  • If you aren’t sure: delete requests you do not need any more, then republish and go to Power BI to see which visualizations have broken
