Hey there v-viig, 

I am not familiar with PDF.JS, cant seem  to find this plugin or whatever it is in the marketplace in Power BI, I simply want to be able to show PDF within a Power bi report.

Got you.

 

I suggest emailing Daniel Sallander <daniel.sallander@gmail.com> who developed some kind of PDF viewer for Power BI.

It was submitted to AppSource but current review status is unknown.

 

Please ask Daniel to share his custom visuals. Hopefully, he will ok with that.

Ah ok, didnt know that Smiley Happy

Thanks a lot.

 

A little side question, do you know anything about connecting to a rest API through a blank query (Advanced editor)?

Re: Pdf view as a load in iframe using custom visual

Sorry. I'm not an expert in consuming REST APIs from PBI.

I'd suggest asking in Desktop thread instead.
