integrating Powerapps with desktop bi

Is there any updates on this capability? I would like to use PowerApps as a way to filter my data (as if I’m the consumer and I’m wanting to “pick and choose” which products I want”) and the use power bi to display various visuals with various what if scenarios from what was selected in Powerapps.

1. I know there’s a custom visual that’s in power bi, do I need to create the power app first and then use that data source? Example, upload excel to one drive, create an app that uses that excel table data, then in power bi use “get data” to get the same table from one drove.

2.Or, can I create a new app based on the data that’s already in my power bi data set?

Re: integrating Powerapps with desktop bi

Hi @pballew0 ,

  1. After you import the custom visual of PowerApps , you could choose the existing app or create a new one. So you don't need to use the same data source.
  2. You could create a PowerApps visual using the dataset in Service.

There is a related video that you can learn from to integrate PowerApps in Power BI Desktop.

Re: integrating Powerapps with desktop bi

@v-xuding-msft thanks for the reply, I am aware of the capabilities you mentioned. What I have found is that the powerapp visual cannot filter a power bi visual (matrix or example). It seems I’m only able to manipulate the powerapp visual - I’m trying to do the opposite. If I’m wrong, please tell me! Would love to resolve this issue!
