Pass values from an Angular app to Power Bi embedded


I'm new as a developer and I have an Angular app already developed with Azure environment. The client wants to embed a Power BI report into his app using Power BI analitycs embedded for customers ( he don't want to buy a Premium license). The database that it will be used is an SQL database.

My scenario is : User go to the app put some filters on the app and then want to see the Power BI report updated with those filters.  

It is possible to pass the filters value from an angular app to Power BI and the visuals from Power BI to be automatically updated based on those filters? If yes, how can I do this or where I can find guides.


Thank you

Hi @Mio ,


What is the kind of your embed, app owns data or user owns data?

If you use app owns data, you need to move your report into a Capacity before putting it into use.

Embed tokens with Pro or Premium Per User (PPU) license are intended for development testing, so a Power BI master account or service principal can only generate a limited number of tokens. Purchase a capacity for embedding in a production environment. There's no limit to how many embed tokens you can generate when you purchase a capacity.

For reference: How many embed tokens can I create?

When embedding a Power BI report, you can apply filters during the loading phase. You can also change filters dynamically after the report is loaded. For example, you can create your own custom filter pane to match the brand of your application, and automatically apply filters to reports, to show the user specific insights. You can also create a button that when selected, applies filters to the embedded report.

You may refer to this offical blog: Control report filters.
