parameterize web API link while refreshing dataset

 

Hi,

 

     I am working on embedding a PBI report in to a .Net Web application.

 

We have users logging in to the website through different regions in to the website, and the web API link is generated based on the user REGION that he/she belongs to.

 

Eg: http://dummy.corp.TT.com/WebApi/api/subjectarea/Getsubjectarea/REGION1

 

I am looking for a option where i can parameterize the REGION in the web API link to pass in to PBI, where i can only show data in the PBI report for the REGION the user belongs to.

 

Is there a option where i can pass/change the wep api link dynamically in to gateway for datarefresh so that we can provide that particular REGION's data to the customer.

http://dummy.corp.TT.com/WebApi/api/subjectarea/Getsubjectarea/#REGION#   

 

Note : Data is in JSON format

HI @Pbi_Enthu,

 

>>Is there a option where i can pass/change the wep api link dynamically in to gateway for datarefresh so that we can provide that particular REGION's data to the customer.

Current power bi not support dynamic push parameters to gateway.

 

For your scenario, I'd recommend you to setting RLS with mapping username and regain data to achieve dynamic filter effect.

RLS with UserName()

 

Logic: add region information to user table, use region link other tables, then use username to apply filter effect on user table.(apply cross filter effect to other tables)

Hi


Power BI embedded just released Query Parameters for Power BI Embedded
