I'd like to ask advice on how to better be introduced into the world of embedding Power BI.
Thanks in advance for your answers.

the easiest way i know to bind a report into a webpage is to publish them first and then bind it in your page by using an Iframe like so:
After you press on "Publish to web" you will get a code similar to this:
<iframe width="800" height="600" src="https://app.powerbi.com/view?r=xxx" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen="true"></iframe>
This html-code you just have to paste in your webpage and youre ready to go.
Btw: you can resize it if you want by using the attributes width="800" and height="600"
Im not sure about the wp-plugin but i think thats not safe as you maybe have to offer your login-credentials to use the plug-in. I dont recommend to use it if its a third-party developer. Keep your data safe 🙂
I have used Iframe to show the power bi report in mvc web application. The code is as below:
<iframe id="frame" width="800" height="600" src="https://msit.powerbi.com/reportEmbed?reportId=xxx" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen="true"></iframe>
After running the application, when i am trying to sign in to power bi, the following popup is getting displayed "The webpage you are trying to view is closing the tab. Do you want to close the tab". If i click on Yes or No, power bi report is loading in the web page instead of showing up in the iframe.
Can anyone suggest me what is the issue in this?
thank you for your answer. Unfortunately that is not a possibility for us. According to what Microsoft writes about the "Publish to web" functionality, they reserve the rights to show the data on search engines or use the data themselves. Since we are handling industrial data we simply can't tell our customers that Microsoft might decide to use their data, so publish to web is a no go for us. We are, I believe, forced to rely upon Power BI Embedded, but the learning curve, given our lack of knowledge of web apps, might be rather steep; that's why I am asking for any advice to make it as easy as possible to move the first steps into this world and maybe produce an initial result upon which we might later expand.
We developed a plugin for WordPress to make this process easier if you use the "app owns data" method. See here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/embed-power-bi.
