API and Javascript filtering

We have an ASP.Net website that displays a powerBI report via “user owns data”…we have a local SQL Server using the On Premise Gateway and "Import Reports, not an Azure database.

 

In the C# file we send a System.Net.HttpWebRequest with our access token that we deserialize with “JsonConvert”.

That returns report id, report name, report webUrl and report embedUrl. We store the access token, the report id and the embedUrl in aspx hidden fields.

 

Our report displays fine on the aspx page but the filters aren’t applied.

We have tried with reports where there are defined "Report Filters" in the report thata re either populated or set to "All".

 

We have tried basic and advanced filters with no joy based on https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Developer/Addling-filter-using-javascript-API-Power-BI-Service/td-p... and https://microsoft.github.io/PowerBI-JavaScript/demo/defaults.html

 

<script src="scripts/powerbi.js"></script>
<script src="scripts/jquery-1.12.4.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var report = null;

window.onload = function () { 
                var accessToken = document.getElementById('hfAccessToken').value;

                if (!accessToken || accessToken == "") {
                                return;
                }
                
                var metricFilter = {
                                $schema: "http://powerbi.com/product/schema#basic",
                                target: {
                                                table: "Cats",
                                                column: "CatName"
                                },
                                operator: "In",
                                values: ["Mr Furball"]
                }
                var embedUrl = document.getElementById('hfEmbedUrl').value;
                var reportId = document.getElementById('hfReportId').value;

                var config = {
                                type: 'report', 
                                accessToken: accessToken,
                                embedUrl: embedUrl,
                                filters: [metricFilter],
                                id: reportId,
                                settings: {
                                                filterPaneEnabled: false,
                                                navContentPaneEnabled: false
                                }
                };
                var reportContainer = document.getElementById('reportContainer');
                report = powerbi.embed(reportContainer, config); 
};
</script>

<asp:HiddenField ID="hfEmbedUrl" runat="server" />    
<asp:HiddenField ID="hfReportId" runat="server" />
<asp:HiddenField ID="hfAccessToken" runat="server" /> 

<div class="divDashboardContainer" id="reportContainer"></div>
</div>

Can anyone shed any light on why the javascript may not applying the filters ?
