ArcGIS for Power BI is updated regularly to provide new features, improved speed and usability, and bug fixes. The 2022.4 (December 16th, 2022) update is a quality release. Performance improvements and bug fixes have been made for the following features.
If you do not see the changes, you may need to close out and restart Power BI Desktop or restart your browser if you are using Power BI Online.
As always, please let us know of any improvements or issues you want to chat about!
The Drive time widget has gotten a bit of an upgrade with this release. In this release, a user that is logged into an ArcGIS account will see several new options available when creating a drive time buffer. This enhancement mirrors a great deal of the features available in ArcGIS for SharePoint and ArcGIS for Excel.
There are some slight differences between ArcGIS for Power BI’s component, SharePoint and Excel's, however, most of the core features are there. For example, you cannot share the buffer you created to ArcGIS Online or Enterprise. As a note, there have been no changes for Standard users with Drive time. To see the full suite of changes, you must be signed into an ArcGIS account.

ArcGIS for Power BI is now supported when using the drill-through field wells in Power BI. Once you set up your target page and fields, you can right-click on a feature and drill-through to other pages in your report. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
PKI and IWA Support
For a long time, authentication methods were somewhat limited in Power BI Desktop and Power BI Online. However, due to some recent changes in the infrastructure of Power BI Desktop, you can now authenticate using PKI or IWA methods. All other previous methods of signing in are still supported.
Bug fixes and polishes galore!
In this release, we have squashed a ton of bugs and polished a great deal of the visual. Here is a small subset of the items we tackled between our last release and this one. Nearing the end of the year and we are already working on another release for January 2023!
Quality of life updates:
As mentioned in my last post, the goal of these fixes and UI/UX polishes is to make it easier to navigate and create meaningful maps for your report. As we continue to move toward the unified experience across all ArcGIS for Microsoft 365 visuals, we would love to hear your feedback, whether it be an idea or if something is broken. Having open communication about the visual and how we can improve will keep us moving forward and paving the way for GIS in the Microsoft 365 ecosystem.
