Power BI JS API Event Listeners - saveAsTriggered and saved

I'm trying to create possibility for Web App users to Edit and Save Copy of report.

I can track Save and SaveAs events only at saved event. To determine type of the action I need to compare Ids from customEvent detail (for SaveAs event.detail.originalReportObjectId defined, for Save - not).

 

My questions:

 

  1. Is there any other possibility to determine saving type?
  2. Is there any possibility to see the actual report name (for now event.detail.reportName is empty)?
  3. When does saveAsTriggered event fire?

@hexeh

  1. There's a boolean value event.detail.saveAs which indicates a Save or SaveAs event.
  2. For SaveAs event, the event.detail.reportName has the actual name. For Save event, I don't find the name in the event, however I think you can get the actual name along with generating the embeddedtoken from backend.
  3. I don't have further idea on the saveAs Triggered event. I'll consult internally and post back if there comes any update.
