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.


Idea: Add Filter Options to the API Request Body - With capabilities similar to the JavaScript embedding API => (Filter Types, Operators, Values, and Conditions).

Thanks!

Can we get an ETA on GA for this feature?
We have stopped our Power BI adoption due to this limitation.

P

Really need this feature soon.
A must, must have for exporting automated PDFs and sending to my user groups.

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.

P

Paginated reports have a mechanism for passing in filters, please add something similar for power bi reports.

P

Sensible suggestion. This would really enhance the offering with added functionality.

P

Agreed, please add the functionality of passing parameterised values through to the filters before export.
