    One of the action type - drillthrough action is supported with the DetailRowExpression, which lets you specify a custom drillthrough type action for a table or measures. But the Reporting actions and Standard actions are not supported.

    Currently this no information from the product team about the feature in Tabular model, I would suggest you submit the requirement at SQL Feedback site.
    If the requirement mentioned by customers for many times, the product team may consider to add this feature in the next SQL Server version. Your feedback is valuable for us to improve our products and increase the level of service provided.

    Hello anonymous user,

    Unfortunately, Azure Analysis Service doesn’t support creating multidimensional models.


    Reference: Actions (Analysis Services - Multidimensional Data)

    I would suggest you to vote up an idea submitted by another Azure customer:

    All of the feedback you share in these forums will be monitored and reviewed by the Microsoft engineering teams responsible for building Azure.

    Hope this helps. Do let us know if you any further queries.
