Prevent URL to open Power BI app

I have a dashboard I'd like to open with a specific filter applied. Through the use of URL paramaters I've managed doing this. Ideally, I want the URL to open the PowerBI app with this filter applied, but what I understood from other topics, this isn't yet supported in the mobile app. My question is whether there's a workaround. Can I for example make the URL force the dashboard to be opened in the mobile browser, where this pre-defined filtering does work?


Many thanks in advance for your support 🙂

Hi @Nipius ,


Not sure I understand you correctly...


Based on my test, if you apply URL filter in a report and then pin some visuals to dashboard, the filtered data would be shown in dashboard both in Power BI service and Power Mobile Apps.

And clicking the visual in dashboard, will navigate to the filtered report page as well.

=xxxx?filter=Table/Column eq 'A'




For more information, please refer to:

Create a link to a specific location in the Power BI mobile apps - Power BI | Microsoft Docs

Hey @Nipius ,


Power BI Mobile apps DO support query params, so when using a link to report that has query params, the app will apply the params as filter values.

This is true for both iOS and Android apps.


Thanks, Maya
