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

Quick Start


Import the 'PowerBIReportEmbed' inside your target module:

import { PowerBIReportEmbed } from 'powerbi-client-vue-js';

Embed a Power BI 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);]

How to bootstrap a 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"

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

Embedding other Power BI artifacts

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

Component Selector to use for embedding
PowerBIReportEmbedComponent <PowerBIReportEmbed>
PowerBIDashboardEmbedComponent <PowerBIDashboardEmbed>
PowerBITileEmbedComponent <PowerBITileEmbed>
PowerBIVisualEmbedComponent <PowerBIVisualEmbed>
PowerBIQnaEmbedComponent <PowerBIQnaEmbed>
PowerBIPaginatedReportEmbedComponent <PowerBIPaginatedReportEmbed>

You can embed other artifacts such as:

    :embedConfig = "<IDashboardEmbedConfiguration>"
    :cssClassName = "<className>"
    :eventHandlers = "<Map of String and eventHandler>"


This demo includes a Vue 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 change the type of visual from a report using the "Change visual type" button.
It also sets a 'DataSelected' event.

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

Redirect to http://localhost:3000/ to view in the browser.


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.

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.

Properties accepted by Components

Using supported SDK methods for Power BI artifacts


Import the 'PowerBIReportEmbed' inside your targeted component file:

import { PowerBIReportEmbed } from 'powerbi-client-vue-js';

Initialize inside the Component

Component will emit report-obj and You can use this variable.Add method in the component template.

<PowerBIReportEmbed v-if="isEmbedded"

Declare a variable report!:Report and set the report to the report-obj.

setReportObj(value: Report) {
    this.report = value;


You can use report to call supported SDK APIs.

async getReportPages(): Page[] {
    const pages = await this.report.getPages();
