embed filter issue




I am finding difficulty in applying the filter through embed javascript api.


I have two companies, i.e. 'abc' and 'xyz', I want to apply filter on companyname with 'abc'.


I tried below code but it does not apply filter, can anybody help !!!


Thanks in advance........


          var filterTypeTarget={};
	  var operatorAndValues={};
	  filterTypeTarget.table = 'companytable';
	  filterTypeTarget.column = 'ComapnyName';
	  operatorAndValues.operator = 'In';
	  operatorAndValues.values = ['abc','xyz'];
	  values = ['abc'];
	  $(function () {
		 var models = window['powerbi-client'].models;
		 var defaultFilter = new models.BasicFilter(filterTypeTarget, operatorAndValues, values);
		  var report;
		  var embedConfiguration = {
			type: 'report',
			filter: defaultFilter.toJSON(),
			embedUrl: ''
		var $reportContainer = $('#reportContainer');
		report = powerbi.embed($reportContainer.get(0), embedConfiguration);

@abhi123: Is Javascript api works with Rest API? 

We have integrated our reports in an external application using Rest API(Not Power BI Embedded azure) so we want to customize integration process using Javascript API.

@abhi123: Sorry Man. I don't have that if found any it. Please share with me 

No issues.




In your embedConfiguration, is "filter" or "filters" (with an 's')?


Per the documentation, I believe it is filters.

Also, it should be an array  i.e., filters: [ defaultFilter.toJSON() ]


Please give it a try and let me know because I too am having issues setting the filters in the embeddedConfiguration. I get the following errors in the console Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 401 (Unauthorized)
  1. Array[3]
    1. 0:Object
      1. message:"filters is invalid. Not meeting type constraint"
