I can't get the "single selection required" real value of a slicer with the client API



I have a report with a categorical slicer. This slicer has "single select" checked and renders as a "one selection" visual:




However, when I use the client API in embed mode, when I get this slicer and then run `const state = await slicer.getState()`

the `state.filters[0].requireSingleSelection` is always set to false whatever the check status on my report.

Is it a known issue or is it because I get the wrong attribute?

Hi @FrançoisD ,

Please review the following links, hope they can help get the expected result...

Get slicer state

Slicers · microsoft/PowerBI-JavaScript Wiki · GitHub

let state = await visual.getSlicerState();
// Get the list of visuals from the report
    .then(function(pages) {
        return pages[0].getVisuals();
    .then(function(visuals) {
        // Find the slicer visual by name or other properties
        let slicer = visuals.find(function(visual) {
            return visual.type === 'slicer' && === 'SlicerVisualName';

        // Get the state of the slicer
        return slicer.getSlicerState();
    .then(function(slicerState) {
        // Access the selected value
        let selectedValue = slicerState.targets[0].target;
        console.log('Selected Value:', selectedValue);
    .catch(function(errors) {

Thanks for your reply but, it does not answer my question at all.

I am already using the getSlicerState function and I can already get the selected value and even set it.

My issue is that I cannot programmatically make the difference between a slicer that only accept one selected value and a slicer that accept many because the "requireSingleSelection" boolean is always set to "false" in the state.filters attribute.
