Power BI Weekly Issue 152: 12th April 2022

A handful of updates this week: there are some new gateway security roles for Power BI, there have been some improvements to the management of Power BI subscriptions, you can now Detect upload of sensitive information to Power BI using Microsoft 365 data loss prevention policies, and there has been a pre-announcement that the Automatic Installation of the Power BI app for Microsoft Teams is expanding to Active users.

Elsewhere this week, Jess Hill has written a nice blog comparing Measures vs Calculated Columns in DAX and Power BI (an often confusing topic when starting out with DAX), Ben Gribaudo has described how to Combine Query String Parameters—a.k.a. Inclusive Record Field Combining, and Mathias Thierbach has presented a brilliant three-part demo of pbi-tools on Reid Havens' channel, showing how you can use the OSS toolset to handle your Power BI ALM/version control needs.
