Print Power BI embedded dashboards.

Hi all,

 

I work with reports that my company embeds in our web application. I was able to give an option to "Export Power BI report as PDF" in the application. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/embedded/export-to 

 

I was hoping to embed a dashboard. How can I embed a dashboard? If yes, is it possible to export the embedded dashboard as pdf in order to be able to print?

Also, I was going through all the articles about how the printed dashboards are not well paginated. Is there an update about that?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @niki_b,

I think you can take a look at power bi javascript API documents and they allow you to embedded these dashboards:

Embed a dashboard in Power BI embedded analytics | Microsoft Docs

I think I will go for dashboards for now. Is there a way to embed dashboards in the web application for customers?

How do I get embed token for dashboards just like we do for reports!

yes, yes you are.  Have a look at the Paginated Report visual that was introduced recently in Power BI, but it will still not give you what you want. 

 

You have to make a hard choice - responsive design or pixel perfect rendering. You can't have both.

If you worry about pagination then you probably want to use paginated reports instead of dashboards.  Neither dashboards nor reports give any guarantee on rendering or pagination.

I tried to use paginated reports but I realised that Power BI Report Builder does not provide the insane features that are available through Power BI desktop. I want to be able to have the user experience from power BI along with perfect pagination. Am I asking for a lot?
