Problems with URL filtering in Power BI application

When filtering a report directly on the URL generating a QRCode with this link, when opening the report in the Power BI Android app it opens without the filter. Does anyone know how to force the app to accept the URL filter?

Hi @lmandrade ,

 

At present, there is no such function as you mentioned. URL filtering cannot be performed when the link jumps to the Power BI mobile app. You can only perform URL filtering in the browser on the mobile. You can submit your idea and vote for it: https://ideas.powerbi.com/ideas/

Hey @lmandrade and @v-stephen-msft ,

 

Power BI Mobile apps (IOS and Android) DO support passing params in report URL. 

The part that is not supported for now, if that the QR generation in Power BI does not capture the query params. This is a workitem in the team's backlog.

 

@lmandrade - can you please add your vote to this feature in Power BI Ideas website to help us prioritize? Microsoft Idea  · Add filters to QR (powerbi.com)

 

If you wish, I would also like to learn more about your scenario of using QR + filters. Can you please email us at Power BI Mobile Support <mpbisup@microsoft.com> with more details?

 

Thanks, Maya

Hi @mshenhav 

 

I encountered a problem when using URL filters for the iOS app - it just does not apply the filter as expected.

 

This is the link that I am using:

https://app.powerbi.com/Redirect?Action=OpenReport&reportObjectId={reportid}&groupObjectId={groupId}...} eq '%id%'

 

It works fine when opened in the browser on PC/Laptop where the Power BI web app is opened, but when navigated from the browser on the mobile device, it opens the Power BI app, but the filter is not applied. The report is always opened with the same "filter" even when I come from different sources.

 

Are you sure that this works? I could not find examples in the docs for filters when using this kind of link so I am curious if it actually works...

 

Regards,
Denis
