How to create parameters in Power BI report builder with Power BI dataset is used as a data source?

I know basic DAX. Good enough to write basic measures. But I cannot really write full DAX queries like SQL query.

 

I have a Power BI dataset available in Power BI service. I need to create paginated report using that dataset. This requires DAX query. Per MS documentaion, I can use performance analyzer to grab DAX query and use that to create dataset. However, those won't include parameters. Is there a easy way to add parameters to DAX query? Or it is just better to use Query designer? 

 

Thanks!

@amitchandak Thank you for taking the time to respond.

 

That link did help somewhat and eventually I found this link to Chris's blog: https://blog.crossjoin.co.uk/2019/11/03/power-bi-report-builder-and-rscustomdaxfilter/

 

Looks like using DAX is way more complicated that I thought. If I have to choose between DAX and SQL for these reports, what should be a default choice?

 

I was inclining to DAX because I can resue the existng model. But that model gets all its data using SQL anyway.
