The Esri Map visual in Power BI is not saving settings. I set everything up for a boundary map based on one country and it is all fine. Go to another tab and back again and all settings have been lost. This has not been an issue before and seems to be an issue since the May edition of Power BI. It seems that the bug reported here is back again. https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/ESRI-ArcGIS-maps-arent-saving-changes/idc-p/1099172#M57047
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am finding this issue is occurring in Power BI Desktop. I have not tested editing online but the maps that I already have set up online are working. I am in Australia if this helps.
Hello Jon Emch,
Same problem in PowerBI Online, April 2020 desktop version works fine.
The problem occurs when published on PowerBI Online, the visual resets to default settings.
All colors and boundaries configurations resets to points and the visual doesn't make sense.
This is the region of PBI Tenant (North Central US (Illinois))
Any updates or expected resolution time?
Thanks for your support on this.
I am not sure if this is connected but it has only started to be a problem more recently so may well be. Choropleth maps using the location boundaries previously worked well. Now the polygons are not rendering correctly for all of the areas and you end up with this.
If this is occurring in PowerBI Desktop, my first recommendation would be to reinstall PowerBI Desktop with the latest and greatest. You can find this installer here:
