How to allow users to input parameters to a power bi report

I have created a SQL server dashboard using parameters , that takes the server name and builds the dynamic report. However, I would like users to input the parameters to the power bi report, when the report is opened.  So I would like to have a pop up window appear, that would allow users to input the server name and then load the reports. 


Please let me know, how can i achieve this.






@amitchandak  - Thank you for your quick response, but i dont think  the link answers my question. So just to ellaborate, I have a report that queries many servers and gets the server state , like the  drive space, the space occupied by data and log files , backup date etc , and to make this report dynamic, I have used parameters. But  I want to edit the parameters , from a pop up window  that will accept the server name i type as the parameter and then load the report.  So that need popup screen needs to appear when i open the report and then loads  the report on the basis  of what the user has typed.


If there is anything you could suggest, it would be much appreciated.
