Export reports as image files tenant setting

In the Power BI code sample for Exporting files (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/embedded/export-to#code-examples)  it says below that you need to enabled the export reports as image files.  I have admin and looking in the tenant and I dont see an image for below.  I have Power BI Premium so I should be able to do it.  Does anyone know where this setting is at?

Before using the API, verify that the following admin tenant settings are enabled:

  • Export reports as PowerPoint presentations or PDF documents - Enabled by default.
  • Export reports as image files - Required only for .png and disabled by default.

Re: Export reports as image files tenant setting

Hi @Juniorflip ,

 

The option of exporting a report to PNG format through the REST API is disabled by default for all tenants (this is the design).
Because of this bug:
1) For tenants who didn’t enable this option in the past –if they want to allow it, they cannot do so.
2) For tenants who enabled this option in the past - they cannot disable it .
3) For tenants who enabled this option in the past – they can still export to PNG format.

 

Fix will be part of 7.1 train.

 

Best regards,
Lionel Chen
