Dynamically Change Custom Map in Shape Maps

I want to be able to change the Shape Map custom map that is displayed based on the consumer ID. Is it possible to dynamically change a Shape Map custom visual?

 

For example:

 

Presuming I have built my own custom topoJSON files for both US and Europe (not using maps built into Shape Maps):

I have customers in the US, and when they log in I need to show them a shape map of just the United States with correlated graphs (not exposing European information). I also have European customers and on their log in I only want to show them a map of Europe with the same correlated graphs (without exposing US information). I cannot manually upload the custom visual each time, and need to automate it on Power BI service. I cannot have the United States and European maps stored on the same topoJSON file due to privacy issues-- they must be separate. I also do not want to make separate reports for each consumer.

 

Could I maybe point the Shape Map to a URL with topoJSON data? or insert a new topoJSON into the Shape Map upon login each time?

 

Thanks

HI @helpme ,

Nope, shape map not support to dynamic change shape region based on login user. You can consider to submit an idea for dynamic source url.
