Register an Application for Power BI - Need more details

Looking for the way to integrate Power BI report with web app, developed in ASP.NET. As I know, there are few options for it...

 

0. Share Dashboard and share Report URL

1. Publish to Web

2. RESR API

3. Power BI Enbedded 

 

Here are pros & cons each option....

 

  • Option#0: This is option okay... but we has to come to Power BI Web UI to see report. This is not better option from User Experiance perspective.
  • Option#1: Publish to web...It won't have Authentication ; so can't go for it.
  • Option#2: Not yet implemented, but seems better option, if we can register app for Power BI in AAD (http://dev.powerbi.com/apps). Having few issue in registering apps.
    • When I try to do here (https://dev.powerbi.com/apps)... nothing is happening with click on "Sign in with you existing account" button. Not able to proceed further. Its not showing any error
    • Questions
      • Can anyone detail more on "how to register app for Power BI in AAD"?
      • As it deals with AAD... does it involve any cost?
  • Option#3Power BI Enbedded, involves $, so can't go for it.

 

Appriciate any help on these above questions for option#2:

 

Thank you

Pradeep

@ypradeep23

What the account you logged-in? I can login and register an app without problem. It doesn't need cost, as I registered a test Power BI account for free and can call the REST APIs with no problem.

 

By the way, Using REST API with a free license has the limitation comparing to Pro license.

Re: Register an Application for Power BI -ClientID dependency on Password

Hi all,

I have a question with respect to the ClientID bein generated.

 

We have been using a service account that's the user for mutiple dashboards.

 

We did register as an App and got a ClientId generated through the portal:  https://dev.powerbi.com/apps

 

Now this particular service account got it's password changed in the Azure Key Vault.

 

Does that mean we need to re-generate the ClinetId again for that particular Service Account?

 

Thanks in advance
