How to download an Excel file from a Power BI report and send it as an email attachment at a scheduled time using power automate?

Hi @JeromeMazet 


I am trying to make the same flow as you mentioned (I do not need a page seperator, just an Excel file).

However, I am getting the error message "The response is not in a JSON format". 




It looks similar to this error:

Error 401: The response is not in a JSON format. - Power Platform Community (

Althought, I do not have a Premium shared workspace.

Upgrading the Workspace to premium capacity fixed this issue for me.

Which costs you €4000/month?


Take a look at Premium Per User Capacity which is $20 per user on top of the Power BI Pro license.  Anyone who will view the report will also need Premium per user.

Hi Scott

But it seems like other people in this thread still have issues even though they upgraded to Premium user?

I suggest giving it a try with a trial.

Hi @ScottShearer 

I have been upgraded to a premium user but I still have the same issue. "Re: "Report requested for export is not on dedicated capacity" using Power Automate(Power BI)"

You need to create a workspace using premium capacity.  Publish your report to this workspace.

But the workspace using Premium Capacity costs €4000/month, right? Or am I missing something here.

Hi Jerome,


I know you posted this around a two years ago but, can you confirm whether this works or not still for you?

I have been able to get around this with a bit of a workaround, using two flows. There might be a more optimal way of doing it, but after trial and error, the one solution that works best for my use case of wanting to get an email with all Power BI reports into a single email, although this can be used to design many emails all in one Flow and send the desired reports to whomever needs them:


1. Subscribe to all the reports and have them sent to whichever email you choose, ensuring all reports are sent at the same time - in my case every Monday at 9:00am

2. Setup a Rule to automatically move these emails to a dedicated folder in Outlook.

3. Setup a Flow with a trigger that whenever an email is received for the subscription, save the PNG attachment in a SharePoint folder.

4. Create a second Flow with the Recurrence set for one hour after the subscriptions for the reports are due to send the emails. - In my case every Monday at 10:00am.

5. Rather than trying to extract all files and create an attachment array, I get each individual file content using path. Then Compose each file with outputs('Get_file_content_using_path')?['body']['$content']. As the first Flow runs each week in my case, it simply overrides the data (new version of the file) and the link remains the same so pointing the individual files isn't broken.

6. The Compose output can then be used in the HTML Body of the Send an email (V2) in the following format: <img src=\"data&colon;image/png;base64,outputs('Compose') "alt=\"alternatetext\">

7. I further enhance the HTML by adding the hyperlinks to each report before each image

8. I also setup an AutoArchive of the email folder in Outlook where the subscription emails land to not clutter my mailbox. In my instance I set the "Clean out items older than" to 2 Weeks.

Flow 1



Flow 2



@bullmau185 Your Flow Images are extremely blurry.   I'm trying to follow what you did but just can't make out the actual selections.   Is it possible to get a clearer picture or understanding of what you did in Flow 1 to get the system to create a file in sharepoint or OneDrive?

@collabSolutions This is how Microsoft displays the images. You have to click on the image to get a clear view of it. When I click on the images myself I can read everything without issues. If that doesn't work for you then I can explain it further.

ha ha ... duh.   Thanks, I can see them now.   Should have known.   I'm still not sure this is going to work for me because the report I need to work with only has a single page, but uses the technique to hide/expose visualizations, depending on the button you pick...  Some of the images I want to get to are buried deep in the "single page", so all I get is the initial page image when subscribe to the report, All i get in the png file sent to me in email is the "executive overview" page and not any of the details that are behind it.   ( What I'm working on getting to is the "Microsoft 365 Usage Analytics", which has a wealth of info in it, and I'm trying to pull a few of screens from this report to provide to Sr. Management, without having to go in and run the reports myself manually and export out the images one by one each week or each month.)   It's a cool design that Microsoft did, but it does NOT lend itself to easy access for Sr Management folk who do not have or would not use PowerBI to get to the data.   Oh well, on to figuring out if I can do some screen scraping with Power Automate.

September User Group Success Story: Reading Dynamics 365 & Power Platform User Group

The Reading Dynamics 365 and Power Platform User Group is a community-driven initiative that started in September 2022. It has quickly earned recognition for its enthusiastic leadership and resilience in the face of challenges. With a focus on promoting learning and networking among professionals in the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform ecosystem, the group has grown steadily and gained a reputation for its commitment to its members!   The group, which had its inaugural event in January 2023 at the Microsoft UK Headquarters in Reading, has since organized three successful gatherings, including a recent social lunch. They maintain a regular schedule of four events per year, each attended by an average of 20-25 enthusiastic participants who enjoy engaging talks and, of course, pizza.   The Reading User Group's presence is primarily spread through LinkedIn and Meetup, with the support of the wider community. This thriving community is managed by a dedicated team consisting of Fraser Dear, Tim Leung, and Andrew Bibby, who serves as the main point of contact for the UK Dynamics 365 and Power Platform User Groups.   Andrew Bibby, an active figure in the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform community, nominated this group due to his admiration for the Reading UK User Group's efforts. He emphasized their remarkable enthusiasm and success in running the group, noting that they navigated challenges such as finding venues with resilience and smiles on their faces. Despite being a relatively new group with 20-30 members, they have managed to achieve high attendance at their meetings.   The group's journey began when Fraser Dear moved to the Reading area and realized the absence of a user group catering to professionals in the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform space. He reached out to Andrew, who provided valuable guidance and support, allowing the Reading User Group to officially join the UK Dynamics 365 and Power Platform User Groups community.   One of the group's notable achievements was overcoming the challenge of finding a suitable venue. Initially, their "home" was the Microsoft UK HQ in Reading. However, due to office closures, they had to seek a new location with limited time. Fortunately, a connection with Stephanie Stacey from Microsoft led them to Reading College and its Institute of Technology. The college generously offered them event space and support, forging a mutually beneficial partnership where the group promotes the Institute and encourages its members to support the next generation of IT professionals.   With the dedication of its leadership team, the Reading Dynamics 365 and Power Platform User Group is poised to continue growing and thriving! Their story exemplifies the power of community-driven initiatives and the positive impact they can have on professional development and networking in the tech industry. As they move forward with their upcoming events and collaborations with Reading College, the group is likely to remain a valuable resource for professionals in the Reading area and beyond.

September featured user group leader

 Ayonija Shatakshi, a seasoned senior consultant at Improving, Ohio, is a passionate advocate for M365, SharePoint, Power Platform, and Azure, recognizing how they synergize to deliver top-notch solutions. Recently, we asked Ayonija to share her journey as a user group leader, shedding light on her motivations and the benefits she's reaped from her community involvement.      Ayonija embarked on her role as a user group leader in December 2022, driven by a desire to explore how the community leveraged various Power Platform components. When she couldn't find a suitable local group, she decided to create one herself!    Speaking about the impact of the community on her professional and personal growth, Ayonija says, "It's fascinating to witness how everyone navigates the world of Power Platform, dealing with license constraints and keeping up with new features. There's so much to learn from their experiences.:        Her favorite aspect of being a user group leader is the opportunity to network and engage in face-to-face discussions with fellow enthusiasts, fostering deeper connections within the community. Offering advice to budding user group leaders, Ayonija emphasized the importance of communication and consistency, two pillars that sustain any successful community initiative.      When asked why she encourages others to become user group leaders, Ayonija said, "Being part of a user group is one of the best ways to connect with experienced professionals in the same field and glean knowledge from them. If there isn't a local group, consider starting one; you'll soon find like-minded individuals."      Her highlight from the past year as a user group leader was witnessing consistent growth within the group, a testament to the thriving community she has nurtured. Advocating for user group participation, Ayonija stated, "It's the fastest route to learning from the community, gaining insights, and staying updated on industry trends."   Check out her group: Cleveland Power Platform User Group
