Power BI Tile in PowerApps not picking up filter

Hi Guys, keen to get suggestions here. I embedded a Power BI tile in my PowerApps app, however the filtering doesn't work at all. It just shows the whole dataset from the Tile. A brief of the details,

 

1) Power BI Tile pinned from a Power BI Report, very basic chart visual looking at a table called 'Scorecard' with a few fileds including AccountID which is the one I'd like to filter on from PowerApps (as shown in the attached screenshot PowerBITile.gif)

2) In PowerApps the Power BI Tile got embedded successfully. I use a variable to pass on the AccountID parameter and append to the TileURL as below (the bold part is the appended filtering parameter) (as shown in the attached screenshot PowerBITile in PowerApps.gif, I followed this article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/controls/control-power-bi-tile)

 

"https://app.powerbi.com/embed?dashboardId=afdeccd3-28a5-41ce-ae04-0950f57f0d68&tileId=da52e0ea-d610-... &$filter=Scorecard/AccountID eq "&filteredAccountId.Text 

 

However the filter isn't picked up at all. I tried hardcoding with an AccountID, removing the spaces, adding single quotes around the parameter (filteredAccountId.Text) but no luck at all. It always shows the whole dataset from the Tile. What have I done wrong? Thanks a lot in advance.

Thanks for your reply Modev. I'm not aware of any language pack (I'm based in Australia so I work in English anyway)

Hello,

I have asked powerapps french developpers and we have all the same problem:

I have asked Microsoft powerapps support too and this is the answer:

"I understand that you are having issues with “problem with dynamic filtering in power apps”. We sincerely apologize to inform you that this is identified as the behavior of the solution at the moment.

This has been communicated to our development team "

I'm still looking for an issue

Have a good day

Thanks for the update Modev. Good to know it's not something we're not doing right so shouldn't waste any further time on it for now.

seems to be broken to me.  Does not work at all from the powerapps side no matter what we try.

Hi everyone,

 

I tried embedding Power BI in PowerApps to see if something has regressed, but the filtering still works fine for me.

 

So I have a couple of diagnostic questions:

 

  1. Is there anybody for whom the embedding worked, and then stopped working on its own (without changes to the PowerApp or the Power BI tile)?
  2. Is there anybody who can filter the embedded visual using an embedding playground like the one at https://microsoft.github.io/PowerBI-JavaScript/demo/v2-demo/index.html# but cannot filter it when showing it in PowerApps?

@jovan Per question 1: We had a PowerBI Tile and Canvas app that correctly displayed the information up until the start of this week.

 

Currently the visualization is displaying incorrectly, but clicking and redirecting to PowerBI Services shows the correct filtered data.

 

Please let me know if I can provide any additional information to help troubleshoot this.

 

Thanks,

Leo

 

I just started trying to test this out. But no luck filtering a power bi tile within power apps. Maybe it's a syntax problem. But I can not get it to work. This is what I am appending to the tile url.

"https://app.powerbi.com/embed?dashboardId=<some data>&groupId=<some data>&config=<some data>&$filter=Projects/cr8e0_username eq 'TestGuest'"

In Power BI - Projects is a merged table, cr8e0_username is a text field.

@barlowse One possible gotcha is that you are may be trying to filter a "pinned live page" not a pinned visual, as explained in this post: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/Power-BI-tile-filter-not-working/m-p/434129/...

Thanks! That was what I was doing wrong.
