A control that shows a Power BI tile inside an app.

Description

Take advantage of your existing data analysis and reporting by displaying your Power BI tiles inside your apps. Choose the tile you want to show by setting its Workspace, Dashboard and Tile properties in the Data tab of the options panel.

Sharing and security

Once shared, the PowerApp will be accessible by all users who have permissions to access the app. However in order to make the Power BI content visible to those users, the dashboard where the tile comes from needs to be shared with the user on Power BI. This ensures that Power BI sharing permissions are respected when Power BI content is accessed in an app.

Key properties

Workspace – The Power BI workspace where the tile comes from.

Dashboard – The Power BI dashboard where the tile comes from.

Tile – The name of the Power BI tile you want to display.

Additional properties

BorderColor – The color of a control's border.

BorderStyle – Whether a control's border is Solid, Dashed, Dotted, or None.

BorderThickness – The thickness of a control's border.

DisplayMode – Whether the control allows user input (Edit), only displays data (View), or is disabled (Disabled).

Height – The distance between a control's top and bottom edges.

OnSelect – How the app responds when the user taps or clicks a control. Default behavior takes the user to the Power BI report associated with the tile.

Visible – Whether a control appears or is hidden.

Width – The distance between a control's left and right edges.

X – The distance between the left edge of a control and the left edge of its parent container (screen if no parent container).

Y – The distance between the top edge of a control and the top edge of the parent container (screen if no parent container).
