DAX Studio is a tool to write, execute, and analyze DAX queries in Power BI Designer, Power Pivot for Excel, and Analysis Services Tabular. It is the ultimate tool for executing and analyzing queries against Microsoft Tabular models.
What is DAX Studio?
DAX is the native language of Power Pivot for Excel, Power BI Desktop and SSAS Tabular models in Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services. The training is aimed at users of Power Pivot for Excel, Power BI Desktop and at Data Analysis Services developers that want to learn and master the DAX language.
DAX Studio uses a particular technique to identify the port used by a specific Power BI Desktop file open (the Microsoft article doesn’t explain how to related a port to a window in case there are multiple models open at the same time). However, the important part of the article is the following one.
Power BI desktop supports connecting to a diagnostics port. The diagnostic port allows for other tools to connect to and perform traces for diagnostic purposes. Making any changes to the model is not supported! Changes to the model may lead to corruption and data loss.
It means that we will not stop working all of a sudden for a new release of Power BI Desktop – the diagnostic port is supported and we can continue to work on new features of this software without being worried that the connection will stop working one day.
