Embedding Power BI Dashboards: Can't get URLs?

We created a Power BI Dashboard with custom URLs, so when a user clicks on a visual it would take the user to the given URLs.

 

This works perfectly on app.powerbi.com service site. However when we embed the dashboard in our bespoke application, clicking on those visuals that are supposed to open an URL results nothing.

 

We looked into the API and aparently there isn't a way to surface these URLs to our bespoke application. Unless were missing something? Has anyone tried this before?

 

Regards,

P.

Hi @pmdci,

 

As we can see from the online demo, the JS module seems not to provide this property. But we can get it through the REST API. Please refer to power-bi/dashboards/gettileingroup

Here is a working demo: Developer/API-to-get-Dashboard-tile-custom-hyperlink.

Re: Embedding Power BI Dashboards: Can't get URLs?

Hi @v-jiascu-msft

 

We managed to implement it as per your reply. However I wonder if there is a way to inherit the link target (current tab, new tab, etc) from the dashboard? At the moment we have some links we set-up to open in a new tab, but this seems to be ignored.

 

Sure we could code this ourselves but we wouldn't be able to mix and match different behaviours for multiple links in a dashboard.

 

Thanks!
