PowerBI Tile filtering in Powerapp

Hi,

 

I have a powerapp in which i want to show pbi tiles.  It must be filtered by the user logged in the app. 

I have a filter by user on a datatable, from SP list in the app. varUser, User.()Email

There is a column in the pbi dataset with the same email, lets call the column UserEmail

 

Has anyone got any ideas on how to filter PBI Tile by logged on user in powerapps? So when a user goes to the screen with the pbi tile it automatically filters so the user can see cases only assigned to him and not others.

ok to see if I get it right, you want to be able to send a filter condition from powerapps to power bi? if thats the case, it cant be done directly, 

power bi send to powerapps one way but doesnt get from powerapps, unles you use a automate flow for some cases depending the case, 

instead you can archive this using RSL (Row Level Security) : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/admin/service-admin-rls 

you set the user Dax to retrieve the logged user on power bi email, and filter the database on power bi based on that email allow filters etc. 

let us know if this helped or solved the problem with some kudos or marking as solution,
