Use deployment pipeline to deploy PBI reports embedded with Power Apps

Hi ,

Does anyone has done it before to deploy PBI having power apps visuals reports using deployment pipeline between DEV/Test/PROD? When I deploy I want DEV PBI report to point to DEV Power Apps, Test PBI report to Test Power Apps and PROD PBI report to PROD Power Apps.


Please help me if this is possible.Thanks in advance

@v-tangjie-msft That didn't answer the question. You're confusing Power BI Apps with Power Apps. I'll lay it out.


  • User has three workspaces -> MyApp [Dev], MyApp [Test], MyApp
  • User has a Power BI report connected to a Power BI dataset
  • User has created a Power BI Deployment Pipeline
  • In deployment pipeline, User has created environment variables and mapped each workspace to a separate variable
    • These environment variables point the data sources at Dev source, Test source, Prod source
  • User has 1 report and 1 dataset in the workspace MyApp [Dev], nothing else as yet
  • In the report, User has 1 table visual and 1 Power App visual
    • Power App visual is connected to a Power App called MyPowerApp [Dev]
    • This Power App has its own deployment pipeline in Power Platform
    • Power App deployment pipeline is MyPowerApp [Dev], MyPowerApp [Test], MyPowerApp

Problem: When user deploys in Power BI Deployment Pipeline from MyApp [Dev] to MyApp [Test], how does user get the embedded Power App visual to now point at MyPowerApp [Test] from MyPowerApp [Dev]?

Hi @alexa_0028 ,


Please try leveraging the deployment pipeline Power BI REST API to integrate Power BI into your organization's automation process.

As part of the deployment API call, you can update the content of the app related to that stage. With this feature, new or updated Power BI items are automatically available to end users after the deployment is complete. For this action, use Deploy all or Selective deployment APIs and Pipeline update app settings.


Please refer to the following document for more information.
