I found a bug or a feature not supported yet. The Group By propriety of columns are not being considered on the analysis.


Thank you for the great work!

Do you mean Group By in Power Query if not, can you give us an example including some screenshots so we can see that it is not covered by the latest version?

Hello @measure_killer_team, We observed that, in many cases the measures & columns used in different visuals/pages are not reported accurately in the report export. Meaning, the measures and columns appearing in the report are being used (marked as 'Is used' as "True" in the exported result) whereas they are not used anywhere in the visuals/pages however they are appearing in the visual definition (we have checked the filter/condition formatting and every possible places). We have also tried by keeping the visual (tried for table visual) completely blank without any columns/measures, still it was showing few measures/columns are being used in that particular visual (as they were in the part of visual definition code). Because of the above-mentioned behavior, the credibility of the exported…

Hi Anurag,


The 'visual definition' displayed by Measure Killer is the .json structured string from the Power BI report file, with no alterations. You can view the definition of a visual without using any external tool by saving your report file as .pbip, then opening the report.json file in your [Report Name].Report folder and navigating to 'sections' -> 'visualContainers', as shown in the images below. Measure Killer displays the 'visualcontainer' section of each visual when you press the "Visual definition" button in the main table's context menu.


One of Measure Killer's features is parsing and identifying the measures and columns referenced in the report.json. If you see a reference to a measure or column in any of the visual definitions…

Please try to re-open the old report that did not work and just open the mobile layout once and then save the report again.


Then Measure Killer should run including the mobile layout just fine.


We are currently working on version 2.2.0 where this will be fixed.

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback. By thelooks of this error message I can see that you are using an older version, right? Try dowloading our latest version, 2.1.0, if the problem persists let us know. Best regards,

Hiya, trying the tool out for the first time just now. I'm liking the analysis of what is used where, especially what is not used at all! 😏

I have found that the M Query replacement code given to remove other columns (or remove columns) will not fully work when there is an embedded function. By this I mean another 'let' expression within the original. The line to remove other columns is added to the function, wiping out the rest of the code. The new line of code can still be used if copied more carefully, but it's not a simple copy/paste job of the whole. This setup may not be used very much generally, so just a note.


I…
