Hiding Filter through URL Parameter

I know that it is possible to hide the Filters panel through a URL parameter, but is it possible to hide just one specific filter?

I don't know but I believe the answer is "No". May I know what is your situation so that this feature is requested?

Re: Hiding Filter through URL Parameter

ok. What I'm trying to do is to filter a report based on the connected user. I'm embedding the report in our own Web App using what's described here https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-developer-integrate-report/. So, at this point I'm not using the new Power BI Embedded simply because it is not supporting yet access to on-premises databases (no support for Enterprise Gateways so far). 

Also we're connecting with Power BI using only one Power BI Pro account. Our web app of course has its own users.

The point here is that we cannot use Row Level Security since we're connecting with only one Power BI account. So I was checking this feature and I thought that it could be interesting.

Row level security with Power BI Embedded can achieve your requirement, I think. If the bold part is the only concern, you can reference my reply in this thread .
