Power BI embeded CRM Dynamics 365

Hello everyone,


In a dynamic CRM O365, I embeded a Power BI Report with a xml script following the instructions of the website :

It actually works perfectly.


I also added a filter for this report based on the gaia_idbi field. The filter is presented as such in the xmlform :


<PowerBIFilter>{"Filter": "[{\"$schema\":\"basic\",\"target\":{\"table\":\"ClientPBI\",\"column\":\"No.Value\"},\"operator\":\"Is\",\"values\":[$a],\"filterType\":1}]", "Alias": {"$a": "gaia_idbi"}}</PowerBIFilter>


Therefor the Power BI report present in the CRM returns only the information of the account opened in the CRM.


The filter compares the gaia_idbi present in the CRM and a data field (No.Value in the table ClientPBI) comming from a ERP (Navision). Both return to a customer number which is connected, so basicaly a number in the CRM is equal to the same number in the ERP. The filter works sometime but most of the time it doesn't.

I have found that when there is a letter in the account number (for example C5861) the filter works but when it's only number (for example 4100681) is doesn't. Does it mean that there is a transformation in the gaia_idbi's filed type behind the code ? 


Thank you in advance

I am experiencing the exact same "error" - so my filter works for a value 104000-0 but not 36944.

With this my filter looks like:


<PowerBIFilter>{"Filter": "[{\"$schema\":\"basic\",\"target\":{\"table\":\"Bridge Account\",\"column\":\"accountnumber\"},\"operator\":\"In\",\"values\":[$a],\"filterType\":1}]", "Alias": {"$a": "accountnumber"}}</PowerBIFilter>


On the other hand - if I adapt my filter to include " - [\"$a\"] - then its the other way arround - then 36944 works but not 104000-0.


<PowerBIFilter>{"Filter": "[{\"$schema\":\"basic\",\"target\":{\"table\":\"Bridge Account\",\"column\":\"accountnumber\"},\"operator\":\"In\",\"values\":[\"$a\"],\"filterType\":1}]", "Alias": {"$a": "accountnumber"}}</PowerBIFilter>


I assume there is some sort of data type guessing game happening in the embed components scripts and its guessing on the value not the underlying data type in the target or destination.
