Export to PDF via Power BI Embedded API
The export to PDF feature of Power BI Desktop is awesome. Could we have this PDF support option via the embedded API to generate PDFs into a network location? Say, an UNC path. This would be fantastic for bespoke applications!
this is an urgently needed requirement.
I've spotted this in the road-map, lets nope it comes to fruition...

This is a huge request from multiple customers - this really needs to be implemented asap ✌
If one of the reasons behind PBI Embedded itself was to enable reporting towards end-Customers, and it's to be expected that the Customers would want to download their reports and not just look at them, then how come there is still no export-to-PDF option?
Also, if this is ever available, it would be nice (if not to say "normal") to have it such that it prints all the data of the report, as per the current state/selections/filters that the User applied (and not just one-page screen snapshot).
We considered replacing our current Customer-facing reporting architecture with Power BI Embedded, but we learned that there is no PDF export option, and this is a potential show-stopper for us as an organization to put Power BI to a widespread use.
With thanks and kind regards,

This is a top ask from possible clients. We really need to see this soon. We may actually loose a bid because we can't provide it with our embedded solution.
We have it in Service, so when will it come for Embedded?
Many customers are asking for a way to automate report exports. This is a must have.

A lot of customer ask for this
This is a huge ask in my organization!
C'mon PowerBI team...let us know when we can expect this. It is a must have.
Disappointed to find out that the embedded PowerBI solution doesn’t feature print to pdf. Any update on when we might expect to see this please?

This would be very useful. At least expose VBA interface so we can export on the desktop.
Would be helpful for sure ! waitting for announcement soon hopefully
very important must have feature , requirement asked from many clients
It's not an option, a must have !
The only question I have is :
when do we have a comment from the power Bi team? with a release date of course :)

Why isn't this a feature already?
A must have!

This is a game changer. I have already had to build external functionality to accomplish this
But to allow my embeded users to simply print is a reason to keep PowerBI
