does R script Visual supports Drill down in PowerBI ?

I have a requirement to create 4 reports. 3 reports I am able to create using powerBI visuals and 1 report i need to create using R script visuals. I created a chart using R script visuals. Whenever i select/drill down on other charts value filter is getting passed to other reports as well as R script visuals chart, However, when I try to select/drill on R visual chart there is no interaction among others chart/report. is it possible to make R Visuals chart drillable?. I tried to create a custom visual too but custom visuals provide interaction but not the drill down, in other words, other report doesn't get interacted based on selected values of the custom r visuals chart.


Appreciate your help in advance!.

Hi @Tn_Gartn

Currently, R visuals respond to highlighting other visuals, but you cannot click on elements in the R visual in order to cross filter other elements.

Please know the limitations


Regarding drill down feature in custom visuals, you could refer to this similar thread or this code in Github,  these suggest ways to add the drilldown property to a custom visual.


Additionally, here is a custom visual you may have a try to see if it helps.



Best Regards
