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?

  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.
