I have created a new canvas tablet PowerApp with the intent of adding this to an existing PowerBI dashboard which already has several PowerApp visuals sitting in it.
My issue is that I am able to add the visual in PowerBI Desktop, add my PowerBI PowerApps Data bucket, e.g. id_risk, find my new app and open the app in PowerApps and saved it so that all should be connected and linked.
However, in my PowerApp, whilst it now recognises the PowerBIIntegration datasource, it will not pick up "id_risk" as a valid name and thus my app is not able to work. Has anyone else seen this whereby the connection just doesn't seem to have quite worked. I have given it a couple of hours to see if it was some kind of sync issue.
Hi @tlawsonpinewalk ，
Do you mean that you can not use PowerBIIntegration.Data.fieldname?
Could you tell me where do you want to use this formula?
Please try to recreate connection with your powerbi report. Click "refresh" to refresh connection.
Please check the steps about filtering data in PowerApps based on Power BI:
Here's a similar issue for your reference:
I have performed the "Connection" step multiple times with this app, and now with a couple of other simple test apps.
I have other Apps which work with the same PowerBI data fields. Even a simple Text Label of First(PowerBIIntegration.Data).fieldname does not work.
Normally when I have entered PowerBIIntegration.Data. into the formula bar I will see the fieldname pop up in the suggestion box. This doesn't happen on these newly created apps. I have also tried starting from a new PowerBI report but still suffer the same problem.
If I add a PowerApp visualisation and create new app then the connection works and PowerBIIntegration.Data. works as I expect.
I am still suffering this problem.
As a workaround I have taken one of my existing apps that works with the dashboard, "Save As" a new app and the connection to my powerbiintegration.data still works when I add this new app to the dashboard. It appears as though newly created apps from scratch are not connecting for me.
Hellow @tlawsonpinewalk Did you ever get to the bottom of how to make this PowerBIIntegration connection to an existing app work? I am suffering the same problem and it is extremely frustrating. Thank you
