We are passing a query parameter in the URL for a PBIRS report to pre-filter the data for an Account.
Account names with a & sign don't appear to be working though, even though it's encoded.
Here's the actual URL
https://abc.com/Reports/powerbi/Account 360/A360TimeDashboard?rs:embed=true&filter=OrgDetails/AccountName eq 'AB&C'
Here's how it's getting passed post encoding
Nothing seems to be working though. Is there a limitation on special characters?
Hi All, Could you please help if there is any solution to this ? It doesnt seem to be working with unicode and we need this urgently.
@Anonymous , Did the example you showed worked ? It isnt working for me when I tried the same, it passed _x0026_ still as _x0026_
without url: http://localhost/ReportsPBI/powerbi/General/ReportByProducts?filter=Product_x0020_Category/Product_x0020_Name eq 'XYZ'
'ReportByProducts' - name of report
'Product Category' - name of model. The space character replaced to "_x0020_"
'Product Name' - name of field. The space character replaced to "_x0020_"
eq - means equal
'XYZ' - value for filtering
@volodymyrz, Thanks for the resopnse!
Actually my query was what if there is special character like & in the filering value itself , for eg, 'X&YZ'
I tried replacing it by %26 and it worked for me.
I used the same escape character format as this article explain. Replace the & with '_x0026_'
?filter table/column eq 'test '_x0026_' data'
The only problem I ran into was this seems to negate all other filters you pass in with the URL. This is the only one that comes through.
Hope this helps.
