Report auto refresh stops when using filter query string parameters in the URL



We are using a Power BI report as a live dashboard with auto refresh every 5 minutes (sorry for the Norwegian screen shot).


We recently experimented with using the filter query string parameters in the URL to give the user direct access to their department (, but then the automatic refresh of the report page stopped working. 

Is this a bug? Expected behavior? Anything we can do to still keep the automatic refresh even though we are using the filter query string parameteres in the URL?


PS! If anyone has a solution for automatically hiding the filter pane and also show the report in full screen mode, that would be brilliant!


Thanks in adavance!

Hi @aeriksen 

Do you mean using query string parameters in the URL in the report with Automatic page refresh set, so that Automatic page refresh does not take effect ?

Yes. The report has automatic page refresh set to every 5 minutes, but when using query string parameters in the URL the automatic refresh stops working. If I open the report directly from not using the URL with query string paramteres, the automatic refresh works as normal.
