Re: report embed problem

Hi everyone,


it looks like Microsoft has taken care of this issue. I didn't change the code and it started working. It is still a little bit bugy for some types of visuals. But it renders now. The errors and warnings I get for some of the reports now:

Re: report embed problem

I have it the other way around wherby i can embed reports fine but when i try the loadTile function i get a javasccript error after posting the auth details to the iframe. The error occurs because it is trying to parse undefined. The reports work in the same page but not the tiles any ideas ?


Also i notice that standard users can view embedded reports with pro content is this by design ?

Re: report embed problem

Sorry folks, I've not been following along as I'm on Holiday (still am for a couple of weeks) and often have no internet connection for many days 🙂


Anyhow, just a quick update from my side... I have a case open with MSFT to investigate why it did not initially work as expected. Since then, slow progress on their side.


However, I kept checking back periodically to see if anything had changed and about a week or so after opening the support case, it magically started working as you'd expect. Both the sample from MSFT and my (slightly) modified version to make it more dynamic. Sure, there are still one or two script errors which I think people here have already pointed out, but it does at least render a report.

I'm trying to embed Power BI report in a UWP app. I have followed all the steps in the tutorial but I get a continuous progress bar in the iframe and the report doesn't load. Any help to figure out this issue would be great!

Re: report embed problem

When we are using ADFS while embedding the dashboard into our application, the office365 login page does not seem like rendering inside the iframe. Is it a security issue?
