Hi @mykbitz ,

Do you want to pull data from your Power BI Dataset to a canvas app?

 

If you want to pull data from your Power BI Dataset to a canvas app, I afraid that there is no direct way to achieve your needs in PowerApps.

The "Get data" action is not supported within Power BI connector currently, if you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

As an alternative solution, I think the "PowerApps Custom Visual" in your Power BI report could achieve your needs. You could consider embedded an canvas app into your Power BI report using the "PowerApps Custom Visual", then you could display the data passed from your BI report data set within this embedded app.

More details about embedding canvas app in Power BI report using "PowerApps Custom Visual", please check the following article or video:
