Trying to authenticate and use REST API calls between PowerApps and PowerBI

Hello, everyone!

 

My group is trying to fill metadata from PowerBI into our PowerApp.  Does anyone know how to establish authentication between the two application services for the user, and how to utilize REST API calls in order to extract metadata needed from Power BI?  Thank you!

Re: Trying to authenticate and use REST API calls between PowerApps and PowerBI

Hi @alraqu ,

Do you want to connect with PowerBI and display data in PowerApps?

1)create connection with PowerBI.6174_LI.jpg

2)call PowerBI rest Api  in PowerApps:

Here's some docs about it fo your reference:

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

https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/powerbi-powerapps-visual/

Re: Trying to authenticate and use REST API calls between PowerApps and PowerBI

Hi Phoebe,

 

I am trying to connect to PowerBI when a user submits a request through our PowerApp in order to access the metadata of that report.  We do not plan on displaying the data in PowerApps itself, we want to utilize the metadata for a different purpose.

 

I understand there will be an authentication process involved with trying to call the REST API's, and I am unsure of the steps involved in trying to establish an authentication between the two applications.
