See members of AD group in matrix?

Hi, I am building this report, where I would like to query (maybe through API?!) to see the members of AD groups...

 

So far I have a Matrix...

I would like to, go one level further and see the members of the AD group, is this doable?

Hi @ovonel,

Power query is possible to use web connector to invoke rest api and get data, but it is impossible to send the front side data view selection to the backend query tables. They are hosted and work on different data levels and you can't use child level to affect their parent.

Notice: the data level of power bi(from parent to child level)

Database(external) -> query table(query, custom function, query parameters) -> data model table(table, calculate column/table) -> data view with virtual tables(measure, visual, filter, slicer)
