Add filter options to the 'Export File' API
The 'Export to file' API endpoint is a great addition to the API, however, I was surprised to see that there is no way of passing in filter/slicer options.
Bookmarks can be applied, and are suggested as a workaround - but this isn't suitable for our use case.
We want to be able to generate PDF for sending out to multiple users - but need to set filters programatically - bookmarks wont let us do this.
This is a must have feature. The limitations around automated reporting must be improved.
This is such a mind-numbingly obvious feature that I can't believe it wasn't a Day 1 feature. Here's hoping we get it very soon.

Agreed, please add the functionality of passing parameterised values through to the filters before export.
Sensible suggestion. This would really enhance the offering with added functionality.
Paginated reports have a mechanism for passing in filters, please add something similar for power bi reports.
