  1. Hi Nishant,

    Thanks for sharing this info on the Power BI & PowerApps integration.

    Couple of Qs :

    1. For the other scenario of embedding Power BI Dashboard in PowerApps there is no system level dashboard available. All users need to manually embed the same. (Is it because of the security reasons)

    2. What is the refresh schedule of PowerBI report based on CDS – can the dataset be refreshed real time or it is scheduled using Power Automate ?.

    Thank you
