Power BI Integration Option 1: Logged In User Integration

About Logged In Account Integration

All SharePoint page visitors will be required to log to Power BI using Power BI Pro Account in order to view Power BI Data in SharePoint.

Recommend for 1 - 20 SharePoint Users

This Option is recommended if you have less than 20 SharePoint users who you want them to access Power BI Data within SharePoint site. If you have more than 20, we recommend going with Power BI Master Account Integration.

Ready to Integrate! Follow these Steps:


  1. ShortPoint version or later is installed on your environment.
  2. You have a valid Power BI Pro Account.
  3. For logged-in users to view reports on the SharePoint site, you have to be granted access to the report from the Power BI Dashboard and added to the Workspace that holds the report.

STEP 1. Insert Power BI Element.

Place the cursor into the desired space on your page and open the ShortPoint Page Builder. Choose Power BI from the list of design elements. You will see the setting of the element opened showing two Integration options.

STEP 2. Login with Power BI Pro account

You will be presented with two options there. Click on Login button in Option 1 to integrate report with Logged In User option. If you want to use Power BI Embedded option, please follow this article.

We will cache the login details for up to 60 minutes. Later you will have to sign in again with the same credentials (or with user having equivalent rights on selected report) if you want to make any changes.

STEP 3. Select the Power BI Asset You Would Like to Embed

Select the Workspace, Dashboard or Tile you would like to show. If you want to embed a whole report, please choose Report in the What do you want to show field. Press Insert:

STEP 4. Save the Page and Switch to Render Mode

With Logged In User rights option, users will have to sign in with valid Power BI Pro account to see the report. If you want to avoid login each time, please checkout Power BI Embedded option.

That's it!
