New Power BI API generates embed tokens for multiple items
Published date: January 07, 2020
Generate an embed token with permissions for multiple Power BI reports, datasets, and target workspaces using the new Power BI API. Partners and developers can use it to embed Power BI content into applications for their customers (also known as ‘App owns data’ solution). Power BI reports and datasets don’t have to be related and the binding of a Power BI report to a dataset can be done during embedding.
The API for generating an embed token for multiple items has many other advantages, in addition to supporting shared dataset-related automation scenarios and dynamic binding. Among these are ease of implementation and management when embedding multiple items, Power BI reports drill-through scenarios, and improved performance when switching between reports.
