Filter not working, just reloading the page

Hi All

 

I have a powerBI embedded report using a PBIX with embedded csv data. The report shows up find but I can't filter on it.

I created a test below to try but all that happens when I try is it reloads the page.

 

The problem seems to be with removeFilters() and getFilters()

Both are throwing an error that I can't trap 😞

Any help would be very much appreciated

 

 

function addFilter() {
//clearFilters();
//debugger;
//var target = $('#filter-target').val();
//var table = $('#filter-table').val();
//var column = $('#filter-column').val();
//var value = ''; // $('#filter-value').val();
var basicFilter = {
$schema: "http://powerbi.com/product/schema#basic",
target: {
//table: "tblEIMMaster",
//column: "Activity"
table: "Eimdata20170203",
column: "ID"
},
operator: "In",
values: [69872, 69719, 69863, 69880, 69598, 69604, 68796, 69555, 69091, 67951]
};

The basic filter actually works in my test. Check my demo, replace the token and reportid with them in your case.

I've narrowed it down to here (see below)

 

for some reason the "targetWindow" value is not available

 

                    HttpPostMessage.prototype.send = function (request, targetWindow) {
                        if (targetWindow === void 0) { targetWindow = this.defaultTargetWindow; }
                        request.headers = this.assign({}, this.defaultHeaders, request.headers);
                        if (!targetWindow) {
                            throw new Error("target window is not provided.  You must either provide the target window explicitly as argument to request, or specify default target window when constructing instance of this class.");
                        }
                        return this.windowPostMessageProxy.postMessage(targetWindow, request);
                    };

I am seeing the same thing. Did you ever get this figured out?

 

Thanks,
