Monthly updates for Power BI Embedded: August 2019
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 like 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.
