    Please provide some form of encapsulation similar to stored procs or dynamic sql. I have the following dax:

    SUMX (
    VALUES ( 'Calendar'[YearMonthNumber] ),
    IF (
    CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS ( VALUES ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) ) )
    = CALCULATE ( VALUES ( 'Calendar'[MonthDays] ) ),
    // Full month selected.
    CALCULATE (
    [GP Margin],
    ALL ( 'Calendar' ),
    FILTER (
    ALL ( 'Calendar'[YearMonthNumber] ),
    'Calendar'[YearMonthNumber]
    = EARLIER ( 'Calendar'[YearMonthNumber] ) - 1
    )
    ),
    // Partial month selected.
    CALCULATE (
    [GP Margin],
    ALL ( 'Calendar' ),
    CALCULATETABLE ( VALUES ( 'Calendar'[MonthDayNumber] ) ),
    FILTER (
    ALL ( 'Calendar'[YearMonthNumber] ),
    'Calendar'[YearMonthNumber]
    = EARLIER ( 'Calendar'[YearMonthNumber] ) - 1
    )
    )
    )
    )

    and this is repeated for 18 measures and 3 granularities i.e. Monthly, Quarterly and Yearly. I have 18 other expressions for Daily and Weekly. Then I have a further 18 x 5 different expressions for other measures. This is more than a 150 measures with some sort of duplication where they could all be satisfied with about 7 generic measures.

    Is there any guidance on the devops/ci process. I find it highly frustrating to develop against a local SSAS Tabular instance.

    Here is my process:
    Author my report on PowerBI desktop
    Make some changes in SSAS
    Change/refresh report to validate
    Iterate above (all good up to this point)

    Now I deploy the SSAS changes to higher environments CI/CD

    If I want to publish the report I need to edit the connection in PowerBI desktop and republish for every environment. We need a way to change connection strings or paramterise them somehow
