Power BI Weekly Issue 32: 5th November 2019

It's Ignite week, and I've got to say - I'm envious of all those who have got to go this year. Sometime in the future, maybe! Whilst we've already been told about a few of the Power BI announcements from Ignite, I'll leave those until next week's issue so they're all together in one place. In the last week, we've been introduced to the incredibly powerful Power BI lineage view, and we've also been told about On-premises Data Gateway management by Region.

Elsewhere this week, Ruth Pozuelo Martinez has written a Halloween Story: 7 ways to kill your Power BI model, Miguel Escobar writes about a Step level error handling in Power BI / Power Query, and Ignacio Barrau describes Using the Power BI API Without Grant Permission From Admin [Python].

Make sure you read next week's issue to get caught up on all of the Ignite announcements!
