Hi Team , 


Can anyone provide the pros and cons of using Custom visuals from Marketplace.

@ZikoPowerBI Well, the main pro is if the visual meets the needs in terms of how you want to visualize your data. Cons are you need to consider security. You need to pay attention to the blue checkmarks. This means that the visual is Certified. Get your Power BI visuals certified - Power BI | Microsoft Learn. Some organizations only allow certified visuals as these do not pass data back to any third-party. They are also more secure since they do not use innerHTML or things like eval(). I would always recommend that if you are going to use third-party visuals, only ever use certified visuals.
