Parameterize Reports in power BI

  • 1) Parameterize Reports:


I am trying to eliminate number of records which are fetching from DB ”8,000,000 records” by using

Parameter on Filter method like this example, 

So user should do "Refresh" & enter new value to the Param everytime he want to chnage it.


  • BUT after deployment on the server I surprised end-user can`t change parameter value !!

It`s only fixed as I selected before.


  • After some research on this common issue seems like there are no solution for it !

Currently, you can't use Query Parameter on Power BI Service.!!


  • Therefore, The only way I am following now which are not professional is : accumulating URL with “filter=table/field eq ‘value


            After I export pbi report into template “PBIT”,

I can`t uploaded into the server.


Kindly advice,




Hi @Anonymous ,

I could not understand:

"After I export pbi report into template “PBIT”,

I can`t uploaded into the server." 

Based on my test, I could export a PBIT but if you want to publish to service, it should be saved as a pbix.
