I've tried a lot to get user context into my visual but i dont think it is possible, so i need help.
I have a visual that shows some data but now i want to colour some values for a user diffrent than for another users.
The visual is inside a report that is hosted on my website, so the user first need to login (this is where i get the context, i could save it into a cookie, add it to the url parameters or everything else).
So how can i get a user context into my visual?
I tried using cookies. - Did not work, unable to set cookies, cause its inside a sandbox
I triend using url parameter. - Did not work, unable to read url parameter, cause its inside a sandbox
I triend doing some other crazy stuff. - Did not work, cause its inside a sandbox
I dont know what i could else try befor giving up and just open up a second dialog to login.
So is there anyway to get this to work?
I've read https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Developer/How-to-access-context-information-inside-a-custom-visual/... from 2016, which is btw. still opened. They just suggest adding "?sandboxVisualsEnabled=false" to the URL but this seems to break all my custom visuals.

As far as I know, this is still not available. You may try adding measures by USERPRINCIPALNAME() function.
