We have 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 impact user satisfaction of a product. Factors that can impact 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 upload only 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 into 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.
Using the ‘Refresh now’ API, the limitation on the number of refreshes you can schedule per day is removed and instead an unlimited number of refreshes can be triggered for each dataset.
TLS 1.2 is recommended for all Power BI Embedded applications to ensure that customers have control over the security of communications with Microsoft services.
Add custom buttons to Power BI Embedded reports so users can take immediate actions.
New code samples are now available for Power BI Embedded
You can use the Clone Visual API to make copies of an existing visual.
You can use the Themes API to apply a custom theme to your embedded report, such as corporate colours, seasonal colouring or other custom styles.
The Options and Context Menus APIs have been extended to provide full control for each visual in the report on built-in commands and custom commands.
You can use a new set of APIs to get a list of your Power BI installed apps and their content.
Use the REST API for Power BI Embedded to set the cache refresh of a DirectQuery or live connection dataset.
The new REST API enables you to set a new refresh schedule or override the configuration of an existing schedule.
Service principal support for authentication (preview) is now available for applications using Power BI Embedded.
The Status API checks the current assignment status of a workspace to a capacity (for example, CompletedSuccessfully).
Customers with data in Azure SQL Database can now manage users and their access to data in SQL Database when integrating with Power BI Embedded.
Power BI REST APIs and SDKs automatically manage dataflows and workload settings for paginated reports on Power BI Embedded.
Power BI Embedded supports Q&A with row-level security configurations.
