Add tag for powerbi-custom-visuals

Power BI is a self-service analytics tool.

Some background details

Power BI is a self-service analytics tool.

Stack Overflow already has several Power BI related tags (8 in total). Aside from the main powerbitag, there are tags for specific platforms e.g. powerbi-desktop and powerbi-mobile and tags for specific aspects of Power BI such as powerbi-embedded and powerbi-datasource. Custom visuals fit the latter category.

Custom visuals are visualization plugins for Power BI - mostly written by the community and typically open-source. Compared to general Power BI questions, questions related to custom visuals are relevant to a different audience (developers, rather than typical Power BI users), they tend to focus on different topics, and typically require different knowledge and skill-set to answer.

At the time of writing this, there are 119 questions about Power BI custom visual development, their capabilities, API and usage.

These two reasons justify adding a separate tag for custom visuals.

Tag suggestion

Suggesting to add a powerbi-custom-visuals tag, with the following description:

Questions about Power BI custom visuals: their development, capabilities and usage. Power BI is a self-service analytics tool. Custom visuals are visualization plugins for Power BI, written in TypeScript or JavaScript using the Custom Visuals SDK.

I don't have a high enough reputation to add the tag myself.

Power BI in general, and custom visuals in particular already have official documentation and a developer forum. So this is in line with Stack Overflow's product-support policy ("Stack Overflow can help support your product but it can't be the only support.").

Fair disclosure: I'm a Microsoft employee, working in Power BI extensions development team. This is my personal SE account, and I occasionally contribute to SE sites on my personal time and in an unofficial manner.

migrate power bi collection to power bi embeded

I tried to follow the article to migrate power bi collection to power bi embedded (<a href="https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/migrate-from-powerbi-embedded" target="_blank">msdn article here</a>). However, I got stuck very quickly.

I tried to follow the article to migrate power bi collection to power bi embedded (msdn article here). However, I got stuck very quickly.

For example, in our app, we use these nuget packages (Microsoft.PowerBI.Api and powerbi.core), and these are some of our usages:

client.Reports.GetReportsAsync(this.workspaceCollection, this.workspaceId)

client.Reports.DeleteReportAsync(this.workspaceCollection, this.workspaceId, report.Id);

client.Imports.PostImportFileWithHttpMessage(this.workspaceCollection,this.workspaceId,File.OpenRead(localPath), "Main Report");

client.Datasets.GetGatewayDatasourcesAsync(workspaceCollection, workspaceId, dataset.Id);

client.Gateways.PatchDatasourceAsync(workspaceCollection,workspaceId,datasources.Value[0].GatewayId,datasources.Value[0].Id,
delta);

client.Datasets.GetDatasetsAsync(workspaceCollection, workspaceId);

I can download all reports and move to power BI embedded, but as workspace collection will be retired, will we still be able to use above methods? If not, are there any alternative functions to use?

Power BI to users without Power BI

So I've asked a similar question, but I thought I'd ask it more generally to get as many ideas as possible.

So I've asked a similar question, but I thought I'd ask it more generally to get as many ideas as possible.

I have Power BI Pro. I am tasked with creating reports for hundreds of recipients, each one personalized to that specific user.

My organization will not pay out for everyone else to have Power BI enabled, although everyone will have an O365 account.

How do I share my reports created in Power BI to users without Power BI? Factoring in there are several hundred of them to produce every week by a team of 2 people.

Thanks in advance!
