Hi @sdhn and @TomMartens

 

BI Helper https://bihelper.tech has a Power Automate based report bursting solution for Power BI Pro, PPU and Premium. See https://medium.com/bi-helper/burst-your-power-bi-reports-838ab593f7bc for a complete tutorial.

 

Or you can skip Power Automate entirely and use the BI Helper API solution to automate the generation and emailing of filtered / sliced PDFs from Power BI. Detailed documentation is at https://docs.bihelper.tech/api/intro

 

Do try them out and let us know how they work for you.

Hey @sdhn ,

 

at the current moment, this is not possible.

You can use a subscription to a paginate report
Subscribe to paginated reports in the Power BI service - Power BI | Microsoft Docs

Or you can use a REST API call and develop your own "report-to-pdf" application. What you can do, is described here in great detail:
How to use Power BI Rest API to export the Power B... - Microsoft Power BI Community

 

Please be aware, that both options are not available using Pro licensing.

 

Hopefully, this helps to tackle your challenge.

 

Regards,

Tom
