    powerbi-client-angular

    Power BI Angular component. This library lets you embed Power BI reports, dashboards, tiles, report visuals, Q&As and paginated reports in your Angular application.

    Quick Start

    Import

    Import the 'PowerBIEmbedModule' inside your target module:

    import { PowerBIEmbedModule } from 'powerbi-client-angular';
    
    @NgModule({
      imports: [
        ...
        ...
        PowerBIEmbedModule
      ],
      exports: ...,
      declarations: ...
    })

    Embed a Power BI report

    <powerbi-report
        [embedConfig] = {{
            type: "report",
            id: "<Report Id>",
            embedUrl: "<Embed Url>",
            accessToken: "<Access Token>",
            tokenType: models.TokenType.Embed,
            settings: {
                panes: {
                    filters: {
                        expanded: false,
                        visible: false
                    }
                },
                background: models.BackgroundType.Transparent,
            }
        }}
    
        [cssClassName] = { "reportClass" }
    
        [phasedEmbedding] = { false }
    
        [eventHandlers] = {
            new Map([
                ['loaded', () => console.log('Report loaded');],
                ['rendered', () => console.log('Report rendered');],
                ['error', (event) => console.log(event.detail);]
            ])
        }
    >
    </powerbi-report>

    How to bootstrap a PowerBI report:

    <powerbi-report
        [embedConfig] = {{
            type: "report",
            id: undefined,
            embedUrl: undefined,
            accessToken: undefined, // Keep as empty string, null or undefined
            tokenType: models.TokenType.Embed,
            hostname: "https://app.powerbi.com"
        }}
    >
    </powerbi-report>

    Note: To embed the report after bootstrapping, update the embedConfig (with at least accessToken and embedUrl).

    Embedding other Power BI artifacts

    The library is offering the following components that can be used to embed various Power BI artifacts.

    Component Selector to use for embedding
    PowerBIReportEmbedComponent <powerbi-report>
    PowerBIDashboardEmbedComponent <powerbi-dashboard>
    PowerBITileEmbedComponent <powerbi-tile>
    PowerBIVisualEmbedComponent <powerbi-visual>
    PowerBIQnaEmbedComponent <powerbi-qna>
    PowerBIPaginatedReportEmbedComponent <powerbi-paginated-report>

    You can embed other artifacts such as:

    <powerbi-dashboard 
        [embedConfig] = "<IDashboardEmbedConfiguration>"
        [cssClassName] = "<className>"
        [eventHandlers] = "<Map of String and eventHandler>"
    >
    </powerbi-dashboard>

    Demo

    This demo includes an Angular application that embeds a sample report using the PowerBIReportEmbed component.
    It demonstrates the complete flow from bootstrapping the report, to embedding and updating the embedded report.
    It also demonstrates using the powerbi report authoring library, by enabling the user to delete a visual from a report using the "Delete Visual" button.
    It also sets a 'DataSelected' event.


    To run the demo on localhost, run the following command:
    npm run demo

    Usage

    Use case Details
    Embed Power BI To embed your powerbi artifact, pass the component with at least type, embedUrl and accessToken in embedConfig property.
    Apply style class Pass the name(s) of style classes to be applied to the embed container div to the cssClassName property.
    Set event handlers Pass a map object of event name (string) and event handler (function) to the eventHandlers prop.
    Key: Event name
    Value: Event handler method to be triggered
    Event handler method takes two optional parameters:
    First parameter: Event
    Second parameter: Reference to the embedded entity

    List of supported events is given here: Additional events
    Reset event handlers To reset event handler for an event, set the event handler's value as null in the eventHandlers map of properties.
    Bootstrap Power BI To bootstrap your powerbi entity, pass the property embedConfig to the component without accessToken
    Note: embedConfig should at least contain type of the powerbi entity being embedded.
    Available types: "report", "dashboard", "tile", "visual" and "qna".
    Refer to How to bootstrap a report section in Quick Start.

    Note: A paginated report cannot be bootstrapped.
    Using with PowerBI Report Authoring 1. Install powerbi-report-authoring as an npm dependency.
    2. Use the report authoring APIs using the embedded report's instance.
    Phased embedding (Report type only) Set the phasedEmbedding property value to true
    Refer to the Phased embedding article.

    Note: Supported browsers are Edge, Chrome, and Firefox.

    Supported Events

    Events supported by various Power BI entities:

    Entity Event
    Report "buttonClicked", "commandTriggered", "dataHyperlinkClicked", "dataSelected", "loaded", "pageChanged", "rendered", "saveAsTriggered", "saved", "selectionChanged", "visualClicked", "visualRendered"
    Dashboard "loaded", "tileClicked"
    Tile "tileLoaded", "tileClicked"
    QnA "visualRendered"

    Using supported SDK methods for Power BI artifacts

    Import

    Import the 'PowerBIReportEmbedComponent' inside your targeted component file:

    import { PowerBIReportEmbedComponent } from 'powerbi-client-angular';

    Initialize inside the Component

    @ViewChild(PowerBIReportEmbedComponent) reportObj!: PowerBIReportEmbedComponent;

    Use

    You can use reportObj to call supported SDK APIs.

    There are two ways in which reportObj can be used:

    • Expose the Report object globally.

      Steps:

      1. Create one class variable, for example, report.
      2. Implement the AfterViewInit hook for the component class.

       class AppComponent implements AfterViewInit { ... }
      1. Define the ngAfterViewInit method as follows:

       ngAfterViewInit(): void {
           this.report = this.reportObj.getReport();
       }
      1. this.report points to the Report object from the library and can be used to call SDK methods such as, getVisuals, getBookmarks etc.

      async getReportPages(): Page[] {
          // this.report is a class variable, initialized in step 3
          const pages = await this.report.getPages();
          console.log(pages);
      }
    • Use reportObj inside a class method.

      This approach will not expose the Report object globally, instead reportObj would be available locally in the function.

      Example:

      async getReportPages(): Page[] {
          const report = this.reportObj.getReport();
          const visuals = await report.getPages();
          console.log(visuals);
      }

    Note

    The library supports Angular applications having version >= 11.
