How can we improve Power BI?

Embed Power BI Report Server reports into extranet apps

Allow Embedding of Power BI Report Server Reports for Extranet Apps. Because of our clients needs data cannot leave our servers and be put on the cloud. Our existing SSRS reports are displayed using a report viewer object, however this will not work for PBIX. We need to ability to embed PBIX and display it externally. Is this going to be possible with Power BI report Server?

    We too are looking at this solution but are waiting on confirmation of custom auth. An update on this would be greatly appreciated.

    This is a very important update - I'd ask that the inclusion of setting the CustomData field dynamically be included so we can use RLS in live connections

    Hi great team. This is an important and critical feature we need to have in order for us to show value of using PBIRS. Would you please give us an update regarding this feature?

  • Tiago Duarte commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    When will be available the functionality to pass user and password to an integrated report in an iframe in our personal app?

    "at the same time do work to enable your app to override user authentication in a secure way."

    It's a important feature!!

    I would very much like to hear an update on this. We are currently evaluating PowerBI Report Server to compliment our existing SSRS server farm and being able to pass credentials is an absolute must for us to maintain a seamless SSO experience for our users.

    It's been 8 months since the last post from Chris Finlan about this being a planned enhancement.

    What's the current status? Some of us are working with tight timelines and either Power BI Report Server will have it (in a reasonable timeframe) or not.

    Let us know current status so we can make a decision to wait or move on to others solutions.

    This feature is a must, lot of clients are going back from Power BI Report server for this one reason. Chris/someone- can you please provide an update/timeline.

    Hi guys good morning!
    We are here expecting this feature in Power BI Report Server as well. We have a huge demand to use this feature. Our team is evaluating other tools in parallel, such as MicroStrategy Embedded. However, our intention is to use Power Bi Report Server to encapsulate our dashboards in third-party applications.

    Greatly high demand by our customers, since custom authentication and embed BPIX in iframe has security issue, waiting for next release .

  • commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would like to see this (enable your app to override user authentication in a secure way)soon preferably with Jan-19 update / release

    I second the comment below. A solution for embedding power bi reports in an external web application from power bi report server would be an almighty selling point for this software solution

  • Tyler Gill commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Any Updates? We have a external web application that we want to embedded power bi reports into and want to use the existing application login and have the reports secure so customers cant see each others data. I currently have something working with Power BI Embedded but we already have a Power Bi Report Server the BI Team is using and we also have Sensitive data we dont want to store in "THe Cloud" lol. Is there a Application Owns data model for the reporting server yet, like power bi embedded?

    With the recent announcement of the new PowerBI release schedule, do you have a timeline on when ADFS/AAD might be implemented? Do you think it will be in the January Release? I'm guessing not based on the release notes found here -

    Is this the place where we'd see ADFS/AAD planned for Report Server? We are planning to build out a fairly large deployment and this feature would help from an end user experience

    @John Fields, how did you do this. I have configured custom authentication and copied the url and embed it in our application. But when I login with a report server configured user in my application and when I access the page, I get the custom authentication login page. Any suggestions would really helpful.

  • Rick Root commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    @Chris - anxiously awaiting this! This is huge for us because we have an enterprise application in which we embed SSRS reports using the ReportViewer control, which allows us to "override user authentication in a secure way", and we'd like to do something similar with PowerBI Reports.

    Any chance we know when this is going to happen?

  • Joshua Barker commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Ideally, it would be something similar to the SSRS reportviewer solution so that all powerbi to web front end access is done on the backend and rendered to the client.
