Hi @Anonymous 

 

Use the PowerApps custom visual in Power BI report

and then pass the data columns over to PowerApps

Re: Acces power bi information from power app

Hi @Anonymous ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to display Power BI report within your canvas app with a specific filter condition?

 

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I think the Power BI tile control could achieve your needs. On your side, you could consider add a Power BI tile control within your app, then specify proper Workspace, Dashboard, and tile:7.JPG

 

If you want to display your Power BI report with a specific filter, please consider take a try with the following workaround:8.JPG

Set the TileUrl property of the Power BI tile control to following:

"https://app.powerbi.com/embed?dashboardId=82d341ed-a20e-49eb-b0ba-9d9f0aa77a99&tileId=0c00d742-eb7b-4824-a708-87b693771392&config=eyJjbHVzdGVyVXJsIjoiaHR0cHM6Ly9XQUJJLVNPVVRILUVBU1QtQVNJQS1yZWRpcmVjdC5hbmFseXNpcy53aW5kb3dzLm5ldCJ9&$filter=TaskLists/Executor eq 'Eric'"

Please check the following article for more details:

Please take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

Re: Acces power bi information from power app

Thanks for the reply. What I am trying to do, is use a power bi report as a data source for the power app. I want to acces the report I posted online instead of the one I have on desktop

Re: Acces power bi information from power app

Hi @Anonymous ,

Do you add Power BI report as data source within your app?

Do you want to access your Power BI report within your app through the Power BI connector?

 

Currently, the Power BI report connector is not supported within PowerApps. If you want to add Power BI report as data source within your app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

Currently, only Power BI connector is supported within PowerApps. Please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/powerbi/

 

If you want to access Power BI report directly within PowerApps app, I think there is no way to achieve your needs.
