Error creating new reports using Power BI Embedded

Hi,

 

I've written the following code to try create a new report using Power BI Embedded:

 

authContext.acquireToken(window.config.endpoints.powerbiUri, function (error, token) {

                let datasetId = $("#datasetId").val();
                let embedContainer = $("#embedContainer").get(0);
           
                let models = window['powerbi-client'].models;

                let config = {
                    accessToken: token,
                    datasetId: datasetId,
                    embedUrl: "https://embedded.powerbi.com/appTokenReportEmbed"
                };

                let report = powerbi.createReport(embedContainer, config);

                report.on("saved", function (event) {
                    let msg = `report saved ${JSON.stringify(event.detail, null, "  ")} `;
                    alert(msg);
                });

                report.on("error", function (event) {
                    let msg = `error creating report saved ${JSON.stringify(event.detail, null, "  ")} `;
                    console.log(msg);
                });

            });

 

 

Everytime the code runs, an NotAuthorized error is logged however. The account that I used to test my code has admin permissions on Power BI.

 

error creating report saved {
  "message": "CreateReportFailed",
  "detailedMessage": null,
  "technicalDetails": {
    "requestId": "4a909e2f-4552-0433-13ed-3e9a3d2346b2"
  },
  "errorCode": "NotAuthorized"
} 

What is wrong with my security ? I'm using the "User owns data" scenario btw...

Re: Error creating new reports using Power BI Embedded

Hi @GunterM,

 

It seems to be that the embedded token is invalid. How did you get the token? 

 

In addition, here is similar thread which should help you make sure the token is valid. Smiley Happy
