Not possible receive Power BI report in Webapplication with Access Token



I have a Node.js script, which returns the access token for a Power BI user. The result I get is actual an Access Token. But when I try to embed my report with the given access token, the report fails to load.


So I went to the API examples and copied the Access Token from the example into my Power BI web application and it is working (for a short time until the token has expired).


So how do I get the same access token as the one in the API examples?


Here is my code:



var embedConfiguration = {
                type: 'report',
                id: '...',
                //for Power BI Embedded
                embedUrl: 'https: //' ,
                tokeType: models.TokenType.Aad,
                accessToken: accessToken

            var element = document.body;

            report = powerbi.embed(elementembedConfiguration);
    (errtokenResponse=> {
      if (err) {
        console.log(`Token generation failed due to ${err}`);
      } else {
        console.dir(tokenResponse, { depth: nullcolors: true });
The Code is working. Just the access token received from my node.js script is not working for my frontend implementation.
