Power BI Weekly Issue 92: 12th January 2021

Only the one announcement this week, but it's quite a biggie for Premium/Embedded users out there: Announcing the general availability of read/write XMLA endpoints in Power BI Premium. The XMLA endpoint has opened up a huge number of possibilities for automated operations on your data model, including the automated testing of Power BI data models, for example. Elsewhere, Reza Rad has shown how to use Power Automate to Refresh a dataset after a successful refresh of a dataflow, Sam Fischer has described how to Calculate business hours between activities using DAX, and Patrick Leblanc has explained how to Migrate your Paginated reports to Power BI using the RDL Migration tool.
