Hi MS Support,

I am trying to make SSRS report via SSAS model, I have one join with 2 tables (1 to many).

Results are appearing like following


Following result appear in SSRS - query builder

rather than showing

Following results appear in PowerBi

I believe issue is causing as Joins are not getting picked up in SSRS via SSAS model? or something is wrong with my settings?

Please suggest :)

    Hi @Ayush Ghai
    You are creating a report in SSRS using an SSAS model as a data source, and you think SSRS ignores the one-to-many relationship between two tables in SSAS. Could you provide more information so I can test it and let me troubleshoot which step is causing this? Please provide as much detail as possible about the steps you took to create data sources and reports in SSRS, including any expressions you used.
    Best Regards,

    Same problem here. SSAS model as a data source, creating paginated report on power bi service. Joins on SSAS not followed on Power BI Report Builder . Strange.

    Reports on power bi desktop, same datasource on SSAS, work well.
