PowerBI Power Apps integration data issue

I am trying to load a Power App into a dashboard so that when I select a row of data, it filters a gallery in the app based on the data in a specific column which is what was selected in the 'PowerApps Data' box. 

OwenW_0-1689781220557.png

Someone at my company had one set up in the same way with the end of the code on the gallery being: [@PowerBIIntegration].Data).XXXX_ID , but for my gallery code it doesn't prompt the final XXXX_ID part. It prompts me for the [@PowerBIIntegration] and then when pressing period it prompts for Data, but when pressing period again it doesnt prompt for the 'PowerApps Data' XXXX_ID part.

 

I feel like it is something where the app/dashboard hasn't made the connection correctly. I have tried removing it and putting it back in, deleting the 'PowerApps Data' box entry and putting it back, but doesn't seem to prompt me that final part.

 

Not sure if this was a PowerBI or Power Apps question but any help appreciated!

You need to call PowerApps Studio from the Power BI visual  (not from the PowerApps webpage) , and when you do that make sure you have data in that field. 

do you mean clicking edit on the Power BI visual to load the powerapps site from there? I tried that initially but it doesn't trigger the XXXX_ID part still. I have the field selected on the Power BI box, but it just doesn't seem to trigger it to be prompted in Power Apps. It's so frustrating!

Yes, you need to follow the initial sequence exactly, otherwise you end up with no data to play with. Start over.

Ok thanks i'll give that a go - so just go in to the app and remove the "Power BI Integration" thing, and then go back on to power BI and link the app from scratch?

That's not enough.  Remove the entire PowerApp.

 

You hve exactly one shot at getting the PowerBIIntegration right - when you first edit the PowerApps visual in Power BI.

Hi @OwenW ,

 

Plese try this:

[@PowerBIIntegration].Data.XXXX_ID

Here's an example of how you can set the Items property of the gallery:

Filter(YourDataSource, YourColumn = [@PowerBIIntegration].Data.XXXX_ID)
