How to get the content of the Report or App Description field

Dear All,
In the settings tab of a report, there is a field named Description that can be used to describe the Functional content of the report. 
There is also this type of information at the App Level, when you choose the button Update App.

 

We would like to build a report (using the REST API) giving to our User Community a global view of the existings APPs with a, short cut, the contacts and the functional description (using the Report Description field).

 

My question : how can we get via a script the information related to the Report Description and App description field ?

 

In advance thank you for your help

Hi @BrunoM ,

 

You can use the Reports - Get Report (Power BI Power BI REST APIs) | Microsoft Docs to get the description.

Hi,
I am trying to retrieve the Report Description and Owner properties.
I can run the GetReport REST API but I only get the fields in the sample, not the full list.

These are the current output fields:
{
"@odata.context": 
"id": 
"reportType": "PowerBIReport",
"name": 
"webUrl": 
"embedUrl":
"isOwnedByMe": 
"datasetId": 
"users": []
}
Any suggestion on how to extract the remaining fields?

Cheers, Steve
