Use custom font in embedded report

Hi everyone,

We are currently building a report for a client and are embedding it so all clients can access it via a service principal.

The client has their own house style and fonts.

How can we add a custom font to the embedded report?

Hi @v-eqin-msft ,

We already have a JSON theme for the report so that should be no issue.
The font we are trying to use is called "Nunito".
From what I can see in the documentation and in the video your provided we should just add the font name in the JSON theme. But how does PowerBI know which font file to send with the embedded report?

This is an example of what we tried but did not work:

"fontFace":"Nunito Regular",
"fontFace":"Nunito SemiBold",
"fontFace":"Nunito SemiBold",
"fontFace":"Nunito SemiBold",

Hi @Grasmachien ,


I suggest you to add a JSON theme in Power BI Desktop to use custom font then publish your report to Service and embed it for your customer.

For reference:

Use report themes in Power BI Desktop - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

You can refer to this video to learn the steps about how to create a JSON theme for custom font.
