Programmatically Export Dashboard to PNG

I have seen APIs and examples hosting dashboards in a web app. Using these or otherwise, can we programmatically export dashboard into a PNG (or any image)?

I have found  a solution internally. Our organization uses an inernal APP that is capable of hosting Power BI dashboard. This is the solution that worked for me.

@shhafiz

AFAIK, it is not possible to export dashboard into a PNG or any image, not to mention any Programmatical API. May I know why you'd like the dashboard images? If to integrate the images to your application, there's a feature embedding dashboards which has more interactions than images.

 

Anyway, you can submit your request at Power BI Ideas and vote it up.

@Eric_Zhang  I need to take these images and then export them to a system which will show these on a screen. I guess another possiblity is if the system itself was capable of hosting PowerBI dashboards directly. For now, it can only accept images so I was thinking of an way to automate this.

Hi @shhafiz

 

Actually i am doing the same, export to Power Point, then save all slides as PGN to present the reports (screens) in another application which allows me show the data in a Wall Monitor. if i try to present the Power BI embed link, it takes too much time to load.

But you need to do this manually right, not automatically through some app or code?
