How to Generate Embed Token in pure JavaScript

Hello 🙂

 

I already did the autentication steps and already can get the access_token. I made this using the ADAL.js

Now I'm trying to simply generate a embed token, I already got all the other informations.

With this first code, I can get the access_token, embedUrl, webUrl, reports, dashboards, groups, even groups/dashboards or reports:

ADAL.acquireToken("https://analysis.windows.net/powerbi/api",function(error, token){
		access_token = token;
		if (error || !token) {
                console.log('ADAL Error Occurred: ' + error);
                return;
        }

		var trythis = "Bearer " + token;
		//alert(trythis);
		var request = new XMLHttpRequest();
		//Parametros para selecionar o que vai ser mostrado
		var type = 'reports';//dashboards
		//var group = 'me';
		var thingName = 'DashboardTeste';
		
		request.open('GET', 'https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/'+ type);

		request.setRequestHeader('Authorization', trythis);

		request.onreadystatechange = function (reposta) {
			if (this.readyState === 4) {
				console.log('Status:', this.status);
				console.log('Body:', this.responseText);
				handleEmbed(type,this.responseText,thingName);
			}
		};

		request.send();

		});

When I try to generate a Embed Token like in this code below, it returns me a 401 error:

 

ADAL.acquireToken("https://analysis.windows.net/powerbi/api",function(error, token){
		var request = new XMLHttpRequest();
		
		request.open('POST', 'https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/'+ groupId+'/'+type+'/'+typeId+'/GenerateToken',true);
	
		request.setRequestHeader('Content-Type','application/json; charset=utf-8');
		request.setRequestHeader('Authorization', 'Bearer '+ token);
		
		
		request.onreadystatechange = function (reposta) {
			if (this.readyState === 4) {
				console.log('Status:', this.status);
				console.log('Body:', this.responseText);
			}
		};

		var str = {
			accessLevel:"View"
		};
		request.send(JSON.stringify(str));		
	});

Please, someone help me.

Hi.

You cannot use 'me' as a group for my workspace, generate token works only in groups

You can use your Pro license for developing, when you go to production, you need to purchase a capacity:

Hello @alexsilvar  - 

 

Now I'm also in the same boat.. We are embedding the reports in an application which only supports Client Side Scripting. 

Did this code work for you to generate new Embed Token? If yes, could you please post here the full code.. 

 

It will be much appreciated.. Thank you.

Hi @alexsilvar,

 

Based on my test, an incorrect group_id could cause the 401 error. 

 

If the group is correct, a fiddler capture may be required to investigate further. The required permission scope may be missing for the registered application within Azure AD. Verify the required scope is present within the app registration for Azure AD within the Azure portal. Smiley Happy

Hi @v-ljerr-msft

 

Do you know if i can use the group 'me' as a group id? When I try it gives me the same error.

And I don't know if its relevant but I need a specific account type? (I'm using Power BI Pro)
