How to use new "Function Authoring" experience? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can anyone provide an example of using the new "Function Authoring" experience released in the January update that uses query parameters and function inputs?

    Improved “Function Authoring” experience

    We also made it easier to update function definitions without the need to maintain the underlying M code.

    Here’s how it works: Create a function based upon another query using the “Create Function” command. You do this by right-clicking the Queries pane inside Query Editor. When you do that, a link will be created between the original query and the newly generated function. This way, when the user modifies the original query steps, the linked function will be automatically updated as well.

    When using Query Parameters, creating a function out of a query will allow users to use Function Inputs to replace parameter values in the generalized function query.
