Is it possible to use R charts that use the plotly library in Power BI Desktop?

I have some scripts that use the plotly package that work in RStudio. However, when you take them to Power BI Desktop, no graph is generated.

Do you know if it is possible to generate the graphs using the plot_ly command in Power BI?

This is an old thread but it still ranks high in Google search results, so for the benefit of people still landing here: there's been support for plotly in Power BI since mid-2017:

"plotly" isn't listed in the R packages currently supported by Power BI - see https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-r-visuals/#supported-packages

As far as I Know, You can not use Plot_ly library to generate graphs in powerbi.R visuals in PowerBI already have that kind of interactivity ( Slicers responsiveness).
