Actions SSAS 2016 Tabular

Oct 20, 2016 at 1:44 PM
Is there any plans to implement support for Actions for SSAS 2016 tabular in the next version of BIDS Helper?

Microsoft has not provided any hooks for actions in the new TOM/TSML APIs that we can use to add actions, so at the moment we are blocked from being able to do this until Microsoft adds support for these in the back end APIs. So at the moment if you need actions you have to stay with the 1103 compatibility mode. I'm told that this is a high priority item for them, but there is no public timeline for when they expect to add this functionality.

Thank you very much for your reply. Hope they will soon add support for that functionality. We have several customers using Actions. (One of the reasons to upgrade to SSAS 2016 tabular from 2014, has been that we noticed a 20-50% performance increase.)
