Cross Filtering Another Report via Web URL

Hi All,

I have successfully cross filtered another report via web URL, however am running into a strange issue.

I have managed to create via DAX the web URL string that I want, for example, the output is this:


Note that i've used the in filter clause and there are 3 keys seperated by comma in the above example.

The output of the DAX is correct as I can copy it from the table and paste it into the browser and it works.

However when i enable it via the web link icon/ conditional format - WEB URL and click on it, it leads me to the report with the following link:


Note the string inside the paranthesis is gone completely.



The DAX code is very straight forward:



The column input_keys contains the value already pre-formatted, such as:





Not sure why PBI is deleting the string value from my DAX when rendering the table visualisation via front end - Does anyone know why?


Many thanks

Hi @Oneiricer ,

Say you're working in Power BI Desktop. You want to create a report that has links to other Power BI reports, but you want to show only some of the information in the other reports. First, filter the reports using query string parameters and save the URLs. Next, create a table in Desktop with these new report URLs. Then publish and share the report.


I have a test:

  • Original report in service:



  • Get links in Power BI Desktop


  • After publish, click the link, the Table/column name and the filtered value are existed:


Best Regards,

Hi Eyelyn,

Not sure how your post solves my problem - i am able to generate the URL correctly via DAX.

However when i enable it via the web URL functionality, the dynamically generated text inside the parantheses disappears:







See how the text inside the parenthesis is cut? Do you know why that is the case?
