Re: Create PowerBI chart using collection data in Powerapps??

Hey @kcu07jp2,


As far as I know, it's not possible to use the powerbi charts with the collection data directly but if your data is obtained from an external source you can slightly redesign your application to make it work using the PowerBi tile control and be able to pass a filter parameter from powerapps. Now it's still a work in progress but here is a way that this can be done:


Let's say we import your data into PowerBi and it looks something like this:


data pbi.PNG


and you want to visualize it on a map and be able to interact with it in you powerapp.


  1. First thing you need to do is add a Map visual that displays the population of each city in canada and a slicer (optional) to help you see what it would look like when you filter by data.PNG
  2.  Then you will need to add a PowerBi tile control to your powerapp. Once the tile is on the canvas, another pane opens up that asks you to choose a workspace, dashboard and a tile from that dashboard to be displayed in the PowerApps Power BI tile.pan powerbi.PNG


  3. if you check the control TileURL property you should see : 
     so in order to pass a filter parameter you will need to append it in the following format:  
    &$filter=<My table name>/<My column name> eq "<Value>"
    Note: try not to have any spaces in your table and column names                                                                                                                                                       
  4.  So for this example I will add a listbox which I will populate with the province names from my datasource  powerapps pbi.PNGAnd my goal is to filter the Map by province.
  5. In the listbox's OnSelect property :
        If(ListBox1.Selected.Abbr = "all",
            "&$filter=Town/Province eq '" & ListBox1.Selected.Abbr & "'"
  6. Finally update the TileUrl property to include your filter:
    "<DashboardID>&tileId=<TileID>&config=<SomeHash>" & Filter
  7. Result:result.PNG


    Hope this helps 🙂
