Uncertified custom visual in embedded?

Hi guys,

 

I'm kinda new to the topic of creating your own custom visuals. While reading through the official documentation I found this: "Certified custom visuals can be added to the Power BI service, a Power BI Desktop report, and viewed with Power BI mobile and Power BI Embedded".
My intention was to use my custom visual in an embedded report in a web application I'm developing, so does this mean I won't be able to use my own custom visual in an embedded report without having it certified beforehand?
I really hope you guys can help me out with this. Thanks in advance!

Well, I think you would have to test that, probably by compiling the example pbiviz project. Or perhaps you can get one somewhere. Perhaps someone else has done this but I have not. Best I can offer is that I feel like they should work, but Microsoft may not allow things to run in the Service/Embedded that haven't at least been through the initial certification process of adding them to the gallery. But somehow I doubt that is the case. Would be interested to know the outcome though.

So is your plan to add your custom visual to the gallery of custom visuals or are you just generating the pbiviz file locally and going to import that into a report?

Thank you for the quick reply! My plan was to generate the pbviz file locally and import it that way.
