How to find identityblob for a paginated report

Hi,

I am looking at this exmaple https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/power-bi/embed-token/generate-token#example-of-generating...

I can get my datasource from https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/group_id/reports/report_id/datasources. It's something like

{
    "value": [
        {
            "name": "DataSource1",
            "datasourceType": "AnalysisServices",
            "connectionDetails": {
                "server": "pbiazure://api.powerbi.com/",
                "database": "sobe_wowvirtualserver-dataset_id"
            },
            "datasourceId": "datasource_id",
            "gatewayId": "gatewayId"
        }
    ]
}

But there's no identityblob from this endpoint. How can I find the identityblob. If it's not applied to my case, which case should I use among all exmaples

Hi  @tcliu1990 ,

 

As far as I know, identityblob and valid datasource are bound together, each identityblob is independent.

If you identityblob can't get it, maybe your data source is not a valid data source for Power BI.

Since paginated reports (RDL) don't have a dataset, the dataset ID value in the API response for paginated reports isn't displayed.

If you have a Power BI dataset as a data source than you should probably look at this example:

Embed Token - Generate Token - REST API (Power BI Power BI REST APIs) | Microsoft Learn

There's no need for an identity blob in such case.

If it doesn't work then please check how you added the Power BI  dataset to your paginated report. It's better to follow these steps: Create a paginated report based on a Power BI shared dataset - Power BI | Microsoft Learn
