Dynamic link gets redirected to app.powerbi.com

Hi,  

 

I'm having issue with dynamic links being redirected to app.powerbi.com.

I have calculated link in this form:

"https://app.powerbi.com/groups/me/apps/1b8b1d25-5b41-4fa3-a5df-43d472d62e11/reports/52a48a87-2c71-49... eq '8d47abdc-f69b-4cd8-b6c2-b267497981fa'"


which on web gets translated to: 
"https://app.powerbi.com/groups/me/apps/1b8b1d25-5b41-4fa3-a5df-43d472d62e11/reports/52a48a87-2c71-49..."

 

but when user clicks on the link, in 3 out of 5 times gets redirected to https://app.powerbi.com/

 

Console says /among other things/: Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 () 

 

Weird is, that sometimes the link works and user lands on the right page. I tried this in Chrome, Opera and Edge with same result.

 

Has anyone experienced the same issue?

 

Thanks, Zuzana

Re: Dynamic link gets redirected to app.powerbi.com

Hi @Zuzana

 

For the report in a app, we need to the append the query with “&filter=” (after the ctid parameter), eg: 

 

https://app.powerbi.com/groups/me/apps/6b8bab2e-ee27-4826-996b-c8326d6ad111/reports/0eb76b15-4128-4c...?ctid=cd0b6578-32a4-410b-8f18-0d7f6055ef70&filter=Store/Territory eq 'NC'

Re: Dynamic link gets redirected to app.powerbi.com

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft ,

Thank you for your response, I didn’t know there supposed to be different expression for App.

 

I have rewritten my links to following string, but in some cases it is still not working (gets redirected to app.powerbi.com)

https://app.powerbi.com/groups/me/apps/1b8b1d25-5b41-4fa3-a5df-43d472d62e11/reports/a1540a00-1ed4-4c... eq 'XXX_X31335'

 

In 3 of 5 cases link goes through and lands on filtered page, so table and field is correct.

Is there something I’m not seeing?

Re: Dynamic link gets redirected to app.powerbi.com

@Zuzana Glad to hear the issue is resolved now. May I close this thread? 

 

@DevShekhawat  When you go to Apps section or open an app in Power BI service, there is a ctid at the end of the URL.
