Visual Authoring API for Power BI Embedded now available

Published date: 14 August, 2019

The new and exciting Power BI Report Authoring SDK extension was added recently. This extension allows to programmatically create visuals, bind them to columns, measures, hierarchies and personalise them by setting properties such as axis visibility and titles. Installed custom visuals are supported as well.

The following are several use cases which are supported now by using the new API:

  • ISVs that provide their customers with a friendly 3-4 step wizard for self-creation and personalisation of new visuals
  • ISVs that provide their customers with a friendly UI to customise existing reports for further exploration
  • A chatbot that builds embedded visual analytics in the bot, based on user enquiries
