How to use dynamically filtered database in a python script

I'm doing an analysis that takes a subset available from my Power BI data source and generates a table using python (which performs complex calculations).

But my question is about how to bring filtered data into the Python script.

I'm using the query transformation, which has a Python script option to generate my calculation.

The problem is that when I use the filter panel (inside the panel), the Python script is never updated and the data is still wrong.

I tried to use Visual Python, but I don't want to see the Python graphs, I need to use the python data to then visualize it in the Power BI graphs.


I've looked for several solutions, but I can't get it to work.


For example, here is a code I need to run:

# The data must be filtered before applying my python script

dataset['SMA'] = dataset.VALUE.rolling(2, win_type='gaussian').sum(std=3)

# After that, I need to show using Power BI charts
