Linking to a Power BI report

Is it going to be possible to create a single link to one specific Power BI report.

 

Also, can we link to Power BI reports from SharePoint. (Hopefully through a web frame)

Hi, yes, each report has a GUID that you can use to create a link from your webpage or sharepoint, however, PowerBI doesn't work like SSRS when you can get a link to go to the report and don't use the Report Manager, in powerBI you will be redirected to the PowerBI portal and you will see your report inside the portal.

I am sure there are technical as well as licensing issues that need to be worked out. Just like you I can't wait to have it all working already but we are getting a lot of new great functionality with GA that should keep us busy enough with deploying those while patiently waiting for all the missing stuff.. It is very clear that Power BI is a strategic investment for Microsoft, so I am sure it's only a matter of time.

Microsoft hinted that embedding would be supported eventually, but currently it is not. Let's hope for sooner rather than later. My guess is that now that the core set of features is being delivered with the GA, embedding should get high enough of a priority to bubble up to the top of what's being tackled next.

Well honestly right now it seems to be purposefully disabled. I'm getting a deny when I'm trying an embed. I don't see a good reason why.

@christoffeldg Find the link given below. I created a webpage that points sharepoint online and embedded power view reports into the webpage and this works smooth!

Embed your Excel workbook on your web page or blog from SharePoint or OneDrive for Business

Problem with this, is that we don't have any scheduled refresh, which is pretty crucial.

@christoffeldg From where are you importing data. I mean your source dataset ? (Excel/ CRM/SQL)

Thanks, it does not seem to be possible to create an iframe for this, is there any reason for this?
