Reports URL

Hello,

 

I want to create a welcome dashboard for every group inside my organisation, understanding that each group will only have reports and the welcome dashboard will work as an introduction for the users. For this, I want to group my reports by naming conventions, generating subsection for every group through parameterizable URLs. For example, I have 14 dashboards with names ending on "Site metrics", so in a given URL I want to lead the user to those 14 dashboards - this is achievable if the user navigates into reports tab and afterwards writes in the search box Site Metrics.

 

I only reach the second part of the process, force the search parameters into an URL, example below:

 

https://app.powerbi.com/groups/GROUPID/contentlist/reports?q=site%20metrics

But PowerBI Service redirects to Dashboard Tab instead of the Reports Tab.

 

I spent a few minutes analysing the javascript code but I couldn't figure out how to pass a variable in the URL to show the reports tab. 

 

Regards,

Re: Reports URL

Hello @v-shex-msft,

 

Thanks for your response. The idea that you are purposing is using an individual dashboard or report link and linked directly into the index dashboard, but I want to make subgroups from the reports with similar naming conventions.

 

The workaround that I'm using right now is to generate an HTML table where I'm listing all the dashboard by category as a Dashboard called Index. Each report is linked directly from the dashboard. The HTML code support CSS to you can achieve a good level of design if you want.

 

When you add a tile, you have the option to insert web content, as the following image:

Aftwerwards you have a panel similar as the following where the important bit is that you can place your HTML code with CSS

The table I have generated is presented in the image below. The reports are linked directly with href tags (taget="blank" is necessary, if not the linked will no open).

Re: Reports URL

Hi @acanepa,

 

Perhaps you can try to modify below sample url and replace the bold part with specific key, then share to other users:

 

Report:
https://msit.powerbi.com/groups/group_id/reports/report_id/ReportSection Dashboard: https://msit.powerbi.com/groups/group_id/dashboards/dashboard_id

Then they can navigate the specified report/dashboard if they had enough permission.(group member)

 

 

BTW, current power bi not support to navigate to specify report by report name.
