I have created a new link in navigation bulder, which is supposed to open in content area. When I open the link in app, I get error "refused to connect" and in upper left corner, I find another error message saying "This widget contains web content not provided by Microsoft. Web content could contain code with security or privacy risks."
I have tested this with several browsers and also our customer tested this with same result. If I change the link to open in same tab, it works, but that is not the good way of using it.
I had the same issue, I was trying to link to another Power BI report using the normal url but was getting errors. To solve my issue and get it to display in the content area, I had to get the emebed url for the report. Now it works seamlessly.
I have the same issue. I want a PDF on a sharepoint to show in the content area rather than in the current or a new tab. I know it is possible because Veolia have done it with an impressive demonstration as shown at a Power BI event by @AmirNetz - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daQt9jp4kxA (skip to 1:02.00 for the showcase and notice the 'Tutorial' and 'Documentation' parts.
What I currently get is my PDF appears for 1-2 seconds and then disappears but hovering the mouse over the grey content area gives a 'tooltip' of my document file name, so Power BI is recognising that it is there but not showing it.
@wajridley Have you got the solution on this? I am facing the same problem.
The Veolia video is showing the Word Document in the 'Documentation' , which can be done by getting the embedded URL of Word document in SharePoint.
Still no clue on how to show PDF in content area
HI @MiraNi ,
As document said, current power bi not support to third party url. It will display security notice when you use third party link in it:
A security warning is shown at the top of the embedded content to indicate the content isn't in Power BI.
I understand, it will show the security warning in left upper corner but it doesn't display the web page at all but gives the error message "xxxx refused to connect". I have tried with internal O365 -page, https://app.powerbi.com as it offers this link as a default and other web page. I only manage to get them open when having open in tab option.
