The new Power BI usage metrics report allows you to monitor the views of your report, and to see the consumption’s platform. For embedded reports, to see the different kinds of embed scenarios, simply hover over the embedded data.
Power BI, integrated with ArcGIS, delivers the world’s leading visual spatial analytics. ArcGIS Maps for Power BI offers enhanced mapping and analysis capabilities, demographic data, and compelling visualizations. ArcGIS is now supported for the embedded analytics for your organization (user owns data) scenario.
Set your embedded Power BI reports to use a high contrast theme to enable users who may have visual or physical impairments to benefit from your reports.
Power BI report authoring APIs now support a new aggregation function when constructing data fields.
Generate an embed token with permissions for multiple Power BI reports, datasets and target workspaces using the new Power BI API.
Power BI shared datasets are now supported in Power BI Embedded, allowing you to manage the connections of Power BI datasets and reports across workspaces. This capability enabled us to expand the following APIs and automate related scenarios:
Use dynamic binding to maintain a single template of a Power BI report that can be connected to multiple datasets across workspaces, instead of copying and maintaining hundreds of report duplicates.
The new filter pane goes live in all reports in April 2020. Turn it on now to fine-tune the formatting in your reports before then.
The new Power BI Report Authoring SDK extension allows programmatic creation of visuals, binding them to columns, measures, hierarchies and personalising them by setting properties such as axis visibility and titles.
Service principal allows you to access resources or perform operations using Power BI API without the need for a user to sign in or have a Power BI Pro licence.
A tool for automating load testing of Power BI Embedded capacities helps you understand how much user load your capacity can handle when used. It uses PowerShell to create automated load tests against your capacities, and lets you choose which reports to test and how many concurrent users to simulate.
Power BI Embedded recently improved performance in two key areas: embedding different reports into the same iframe and query caching for embedded reports.
The new Power BI filters experience is available in Power BI Embedded and in embedded reports as well. The new experience has an updated design and useful features, such as hide, lock and rename filters.
This new region allows customers to locate their Power BI Embedded deployments closer to their data sources, either in Azure or on-premises, enabling faster data refresh performance and lower networking egress costs.
We’ve added some accessibility improvements to applications using Power BI Embedded analytics that will help users of applications have additional ways to interact with Power BI Embedded visuals. These improvements include keyboard navigation, title attribution and tabbing.
‘Key influencers’ AI visual is now available in Power BI Embedded analytics to help users identify what factors influence a KPI
The Key influencers visual surfaces what factors influence a KPI. For example, users may want to analyse what factors affect user satisfaction of a product. Factors that can affect this KPI can be the type of product they bought, the price or even if the user is a first-time buyer vs a returning customer. You can embed this visualisation into your own application with Power BI Embedded.
Using the Power BI Import API, developers can uncouple the dataset and report so they can upload just the dataset to a workspace. Developers use the ‘skipreport’ parameter to only upload the dataset in cases where they do not want to also upload the report to the workspace.
Anyone with a Power BI licence can now log in to the account to see how the Power BI REST API works, get information or perform operation on Power BI artifacts you have access to – without writing any code using the Power BI REST API Try-it Tool. With five simple steps, users are able to try capabilities of the Power BI REST API without writing code.
Power BI Embedded customers can now deploy data in multiple geographic regions.
