How can we improve Power BI?

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!

    I was thinking of using Kendo UI PDF export which does a great job however since its using IFRAMES the functionality doesn't work.

    Its required as the option is already available in Power Bi service. Same needs to be available as a API in embedded platform.

    This would be a very cool addition. This feature is one of the first things customers ask when watching an embedded report.

    The fact that the API lacks this functionality severely limits the ability of my organization to leverage the overall Power BI product

    Hey there, there no possibilites to export any kind of data from powerBI Report server ? We have to export the analysis on external devices. Please help.

    This would be a great addition to the embedded version. Would make users really like the embedded version instead of wishing we used something better. There comes a point that we have to start listening.

    This feature is needed for ISVs who are creating custom applications. This level of control is available in paginated reports, this is critical in order to migrate applications to leverage Power BI in applications.

    Not having a PDF export function is driving more of our reports to the old Paginated reports, which is a pity. Please enable this function!

    Now that export to pdf option is availbale in Power BI service is there a way this functionality can bring to the embbeded application?
