Power BI Dashboard URL link defaulting to recently viewed items

I have a Power Bi report which I have included the Power Bi dashboard URL so that when the report is exported to PowerPoint the readers of the PowerPoint can access the Power Bi dashboard and interactive Power BI report if they wish. The issue I am having is that when the report is exported to PowerPoint and the URL is clicked on from PowerPoint it brings up the Power Bi sign in page even if the user is already signed into Power Bi. Upon signing in it brings up the recently viewed items rather than the specific Power Bi dashboard. The URL works fine if it is copied and pasted to the browser or clicked on from the report in the Power Bi service but not when clicked on in the PowerPoint extracted report.

 

Any ideas why this happens or how to correct?

Re: Power BI Dashboard URL link defaulting to recently viewed items

Hi Amy,

 

I have gotten responses from the Product Team. They will fix it. The workaround for now is manually updating the url and adding noSignupCheck=1 at the end, so the url would be something like

https://app.powerbi.com/reports/b0feb82a-9bb5-4f9******2f6dbd8edf?pbi_source=PowerPoint&noSignupCheck=1

@v-jiascu-msft The workaround no longer seems to be working, it opens Power Bi in two tabs and both state the report cannot be found. Any suggestions.

I was having this same issue with hyperlinks to Power BI Reports from Excel and Word. The &noSignupCheck=1 works for these Office hyperlinks as well. Thank you for the solution.

Please be mindful that if the url parameter is the only one added to url, you should use '?' instead of '&'. I rushed into copying the '&noSignupCheck=1' to my link and failed to notice that, unlike the example provided above, that would be the single url parameter, and therefore it required adjustments ('?noSignupCheck=1'). I can certify this workaround is working for me as of now.
