Embedding with PowerBI

Hi,

On June 12th Microsoft annouced that they are combininng Azure Power BI embedding and  PowerBI Services. Until June 12th we were using Azure services to embed and it was working fine with RLS feature. Now we moved everything to PowerBi Services and we are able to achieve embedding But we are not able to use RLS. In Azure, to create embed token we provide username and role which is used for RLS in pbix but in PowerBi Services, to create embed token it takes in Authentication Code, Group Id and Report ID alone and Embed token is generated by Mircosoft. So I would like to know if there is any way of using RLS method in the PowerBI services to filter the data. We would use URL filter method but it is not as secure as RLS method .

 

Thanks,

Raj

RLS works for the old embedding model(deprecated), for the new model, the RLS feature is on the roadmap and would be released in next quarter. So at this moment, using filter in the Power BI Javascript API can be the only workaround. See a demo below. If RLS is mandotory, you could still use the old embedding model, the old Power BI Embedded service(on azure) will continue to be available for a limited time

Hi @vickyprudhvi,

 

You might have seen the message that RLS has been moved to Power BI Desktop. So we can create RLS roles in Power BI Desktop and then publish it to the Service. Finally we add members to a role to make it work.Embedding with PowerBI .jpg
