Thanks for you quick response!

I don’t see preview option to enable shape visual. looks like due to some security reasons, my companies IT team disabled this preview feature.

Is their any alternate custom visual to achieve it . I tried Choropleth Map visual, but when configure boundary json file for us, I’m getting error on visual saying that “Invalid Json file”.
