Organizational visuals in Power BI

You can develop your own custom Power BI visuals tailored to your own specific needs. Usually, organizations develop their own custom visuals when none of the visuals included with Power BI meet their exact needs.

Some organizations might have unique requirements for their Power BI visuals. They might need visuals that can convey specific data or insights unique to their organization. They may have special data requirements, or they may highlight private business methods. These organizations can develop and maintain their own Power BI visuals that they can share throughout their organization.

Organizational visuals are deployed and managed by the Power BI administrator from the Admin portal. Once the visuals are deployed into the organizational repository, users in the organization can easily discover and import them into their reports directly from Power BI Desktop.

Warning

A Power BI visual installed from a file can contain code with security or privacy risks. Make sure you trust the author and the source of the Power BI visual file before deploying it to the organization repository.

Considerations

This section lists the admin and user considerations to be aware of when using custom built Power BI visuals in your organization.

Admin consideration

  • If a Power BI visual from AppSource or a file is deleted from the repository, any reports that use the deleted visual will stop rendering. Deleting from the repository isn't reversible. To temporarily disable a Power BI visual from AppSource or a file, use the Disable feature.

  • Organizational Power BI visuals aren't supported in Power BI report server.

User considerations

  • Organizational Power BI visuals can't be exported to PowerPoint or displayed in emails received when a user subscribes to report pages. Only certified Power BI visuals imported directly from the marketplace support these features.

  • Certain visuals don't render if deployed through the organization repository. Use the Add from AppSource option in the Admin portal to manage the following visuals:

    • Viso
    • Map box
    • PowerAutomate
    • Charticulator
