Embedding Power BI Content

Add Power BI reports and dashboards to your tenant

You can embed any Power BI reports and dashboards within your Reporting Hub tenant, provided you've granted the Reporting Hub access to your workspace within Power BI (To learn more, see Configure Power BI Workspaces).

Good to Know: Tenant admins can also embed content, depending on their permission level. Permission can be assigned when creating a tenant (see Tenant Admin), or from the Manage Groups settings (see Managing Groups>Setting Admin Permissions).

Embedding Content Within Categories

If you don't want your content to be accessed directly via the navigation pane, you can house it within a Category. (See Adding A Category.) To do so:

  1. From your Navigation Settings, find the Parent Category that you want to house your content within. Hover over the category and select the plus icon that appears.

  2. Select Add Content Page, then follow steps 4-9 from the tutorial above.

Embedding Content Within Subcategories

Content can also be housed within subcategories. (See Adding a Subcategory.)

To expand a category and view its subcategories, click on the arrow icon to left of the category.

To embed content within a Sub Category:

  1. Navigate to the subcategory. To expand a category and view its subcategories, click on the arrow icon to left of the category.

  2. Select the Category Details icon for the relevant Sub-Category within your Parent Category.

  3. From within that Sub-Category, select New item, then follow steps 3-9 from the tutorial above.

Good to Know: Categories/Sub Categories will only be visible to the AD users/groups who've been assigned permission to view the Power BI content within them.
