I am trying to Automate a process that would export a Power BI report in PDF format and send an Email on a scheduled basis with that PDF as an attachment.
Is that possible without passing by a premium capacity?
To export your Power BI report to PDF with filters and slicers (with a Power BI Pro license), see https://medium.com/bi-helper/automated-distribution-of-power-bi-reports-and-dashboards-25fde6c68af0.
BI Helper is a third-party SaaS tool that automates the generation and emailing of PDF / PPTX reports from Power BI to users inside and outside your organization.
Hi @ikramelmbarki ,
You can use power automate works with power bi service. But this need the report stored in reserved capacity. This means need a premium capacity. For more details, you can refer this article.
The REST API is the same and you can refer to this article on the limitations of exporting to a file.

@ikramelmbarki I don't think you need Premium for that, you could use the Power BI REST API.
1. Install Powershell
5. Code it
Power Automate uses the PowerBI REST API and has the same limitation. The report needs to be a dedicated capacity. See: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/power-bi/reports/export-to-file#limitations
