That depends on what you mean by embed. If you are referring to using a control to embed PowerBI, then I don't think there is a control out of the box that can achieve that. If you have a URL that can open up a readable version of your report, you can try using the Content control to "embed" the report in your form.

I tested this out early today and got similar behavior that you mentioned. For it to work, the report must be published with web feature in Power BI. See video link:


Publish to web from Power BI



We don't use the web version of PowerBI

we use the on prem version

Hi braddo,


As a test, could you embedded the report in a HTML page with iframe tag and see if that will work?

It sounds like anonmyous access must be set for the report on Power BI report server for it to work correctly for the on prem version.
