Documentation needed for Plotly in Powerbi



I am having trouble getting a plotly to work in my custom R script, although it runs in R studio. Many hours of searching has yielded no help. Can we get a tutorial on how to implement a plotly graph in powerbi?

Re: Documentation needed for Plotly in Powerbi



Plotly lib is supported as part of HTML support for R powered Custom Visuals only, not R Visuals in general currently.

Plotly can only be used if it produces an IMAGE\PNG for R visuals in PBI. Not HTML.


For Custom Visuals we have an upcoming feature which will also enable R-based custom visuals to render as htmls.
