Export data from a published report

That does not show in the published reports it only shows in reports hosted on office 365.

@arashaga,

 

Have you enabled the Get Data API? Please check link below about Get Data API.

https://github.com/Microsoft/PowerBI-JavaScript/wiki/Export-Data

 

Also note the limitation of export data:

  • Power BI only supports export in visuals that use basic aggregates. Export is not available for visuals using model or report measures.

  • Custom visuals, and R visuals, are not currently supported.

Thanks for the reply. Can you provide a better example on the export API. I saw the code sample on the github but how do yo place it whithin the context? or how do you bind it to a button as an example to download a data. Also, on the giuthub page the link to "export data documentation" gives you 404.

 

@arashaga,

 

You can try the showcase and sample code in this playground. Refer to: https://microsoft.github.io/PowerBI-JavaScript/demo/v2-demo/index.html#.

Thank you @v-yuta-msft for this info. Similar to the OP, I'm a little lost on how to integrate your answer into a dashboard. I've built a number of dashboards and have only recently started embedding them into a sharepoint page. The code you are linking to seems meant for somewhere in the code I'm using to embed the visual in the sharepoint page. Is that right? I am not very familiar at all with web design and thus other than embedding dashboards could use some guidance in adding functionality. If there's a resource for learning more about embedding Power BI visuals into websites, I'd happily try to tackle this more myself.

@rpulvino,

 

You may follow the tutorial in the power bi embeded documentation.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/embedding.

 

Also, there're some free tutorial course or lecture on youtube like below:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/embedding.

 

Hope you they can help you.

@v-yuta-msft,

 

Thank you for the link. I mispoke earlier in saying it was a sharepoint site. Our site is similar to this one, and we'd like to allow users to download the underlying data. I assume the link you provided earlier to the git repo is meant for adding this functionality to such sites. Is that right? If so, can you give more details of what that might look like?
