In the previous post, we learned how to create a simple Power BI Report using Power BI Desktop
Now let us publish the report to Power BI Service from within the Power BI Desktop.
To do so, select the Publish button
Publish window will ask us to save the report file (if not saved) before we could publish it.
Here we are publishing it to the default “My Workspace” app workspace within Power BI Service.
Publishing the report from Power BI Desktop publishes both the report and dataset associated to it in the Power BI Service. We can think of DataSet as the Database.
After successful publish we can see the Report and Dataset being added inside the Power BI Service (https://app.powerbi.com)
From with Power BI Service, we have the option of Publishing the report on Web so that it could be accessed by anyone having that URL.
To do so,
Publish to Web to publish it.
The Embed dialog box pops up as shown below with all the information.
Clicking on Create Embed Code will open the confirmation dialog box, that shows the potential risk associated with sharing the information over the internet.
Here, clicking on Publish generates the link for the report and also the HTML code which can be used for embedding it within an IFrame.
Within Dynamics 365 CE, we can use this public URL to show it inside the IFrame component of the Dashboard.
The report within Dynamics 365 CE’s Dashboard.
Next, we will see how to create Dashboard from the reports created and how to share them with other users and how to use the Power BI Dashboard and Power BI Tiles feature of Dynamics 365.
Hope it helps.
