Power BI Embedded support for portals

Enabled for Public preview Early access General availability
End users by admins, makers, or analysts - - This feature is released. Oct 14, 2019

Business value

In the April 2019 release of Dynamics 365 Portals, we started a preview for Power BI Embedded service. With Power BI Embedded service, customizers can provide access to Power BI dashboards and reports to users who don't have a Power BI account. As part of this release, this functionality would be generally available for all customers.

Feature details

This feature provides the ability to surface Power BI Embedded service components (reports, dashboards, and tiles) contextually to portal users who don't have a Power BI license.

With this feature you can embed Power BI components on a portal and contextually serve the data to users coming to the portal. Some of the core capabilities of this feature include:

  • Pass automatic filters to reports using a filter parameter along with the powerbi liquid tag. This will help you to filter down the data contextually based on what the user is viewing on the portal.

  • Enable Power BI row-level security (RLS) capabilities by passing the roles parameter in the context of the signed-in user. This will help organizations to secure the data that is visible to users and show them only what they are allowed to see.

More details about this feature can be found at Enable Power BI Embedded service and powerbi.
