powerbi-client npm v2.23.0 bug - "Invalid embed URL detected" due to incorrect regex



there seems to be a bug introduced in the latest version of the powerbi-client package, v2.23.0. There is a new check introduced to validate the embedUrl parameter, however the regex that is used is incorrect. The check performed by 'validateEmbedUrl' has this conditional: 'allowedPowerBiHostsRegex.test(url.hostname)', 'allowedPowerBiHostsRegex' being defined as a regex with the global flag. The problem is that global regex in js have state as described here, and the regex basically alters between true and false values causing the widget to work only every second time it is loaded. The github page seems to be outdated and there is no way to raise a PR / bug against the latest codebase, what is the proper way of getting this fixed? The fix would simply be to remove the global flag from the regex (there is also another regex in the new version that suffers from this).






ps. here is a debug session that showcases that the same expression yields altering results:

Thank you for reaching out and reproting this issue, we will release a new SDK vesrion soon with a fix. I will update this thread once the release is completed.

I am using powerbi-client npm v3.0.5, For Power BI report, I am not getting this error. But for embedded paginated reports getting this "Invalid embed URL".
Is it some thing like fixed for Power BI Report and still open for pagiated reports?
Its not working in the first click, then works in second click and in third click its again not working.






Please upgrade to version 2.23.1, issue should be resolved with this version
