Power BI react client embed Azure maps

Hello everyone,


It seems that the Power BI react client cannot display Azure maps anymore. Is it something changed silently by Microsoft? In more detail, I found that the issue lies in the following request, done by the powerbi-client itself. The report is embedded correctly and only the Azure Maps visual is not shown. Everything is enabled (tenant setting for Azure Maps and in Power BI desktop the Preview features were enabled when publishing the report). Below is a screenshot from the AzureMapToken request. As you can see the "authorization" header is wrong. It contains the embed token instead of "Bearer {access token}".


For comparison the same request from Power BI service contains the correct value:



For reference: powerbi-client 

PS. The Azure Maps visuals were working as expected a couple of weeks ago.


Any ideas? It seems to be a Microsoft issue.

Hi @panosmir ,

Although Azure maps happened to work for App Owns Data embed in preview, the documentation has always clarified that we do not officially support Azure maps for apps owns embed yet. See the screenshot below.

We are working on ways to support this in the future.

Have you heard any updates? We use the Azure maps a lot because of the ability to add GeoJSON reference layers and if they are no longer being supported we need to make the switch to another visual.

Is there any admin here to inform us if it's a bug or intended behavior? As this is blocking to our solutions and it's not that easy to change all the map visuals.

We noticed the same thing start last Wednesday (5/3) when they had been working the day before.  Hopefully this gets resolved quickly.
