Link to mobile app from website

Is there a way to link to the mobile app from a website?

 

I'm thinking along the twitter URL verion `twitter://my_twitter_url` but for PowerBI instead.

There is way to open the Power BI mobile app on specific dashboards/reports.

You can read more here -

Hope that this helps.

No, it's not possible to open a link to a mobile app view. Power BI Mobile is just connecting to Power BI service, you can use the embedded link created via "pubish to web".

Re: Link to mobile app from website

Hi,

 

I am having a table with one of the columns having URL to open report in power Bi app (e.g. mpsbi://....) but I am not able to show them as URL icons (like we can do with the web links) in the table.

 

Any idea how this can be achieved?

Hey @vaibhav_osc,

 

In apps URLs are now supported in Power BI Mobile apps.

You can embed an artifact URL in your report and navigate to it directly by tapping on that link.

 

Thanks,

Hey @RobinDeFal ,

 

URLs are supported for quite some time, and it should work.

Are you experiencing any issue with it?

Re: Link to mobile app from website

Hi @mshenhav @yaronc,

 

I have developed a mobile app with a deep link to PowerBi mobile app using the below post:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/consumer/mobile/mobile-apps-deep-link-specific-location

 

The URL is as below:

https://app.powerbi.com/Redirect?action=OpenApp&appId=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxx&ctid=xxxxxx... eq 'value'

 

When I click on the URL in my app, it opens PowerBi mobile app and displays report but the filter doesn't work.

 

Is url filter currently supported in this scenario?

 

Thanks!

Hey @Lukasz1982,

 

The redirect format does not support passing filter values in the URL.

You should use report URL in order to open a report with filter applied: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-url-filters

The down side of this format, is that if your user does not have Power BI Mobile app installed it will open in the browser and will not pop a page that suggest the user to get the app from the store....

 

HTH, 

Maya
