Service principal support for authentication (preview) is now available for applications using Power BI Embedded.
Service principal with Power BI Embedded enhances deployment, security, and lifecycle management, allowing applications to authenticate without the requirement for a Power BI Pro user. Service principal is the recommended authentication method to use with Power BI Embedded.
Power BI REST APIs and SDKs automatically manage dataflows and workload settings for paginated reports on Power BI Embedded:
Get Workload returns the current state of a workload (for example, Enabled) and the maximum memory percentage that the workload can consume out of the total memory capacity.
Get Workloads returns the current state of specified capacity workloads. For each enabled workload, the API also returns the maximum memory percentage that the workload can consume.
Patch Workload changes the state of a specific workload to Enabled or Disabled. When you enable a workload, you must also set the maximum memory percentage that the workload can consume.
Power BI Embedded supports Q&A with row-level security (RSA) configurations, so that a user who's asking questions will get only answers or suggestions that are restricted to his or her view of the data.
Power BI is introducing a new workspace experience as a preview. Workspaces are still places to collaborate with colleagues to create collections of dashboards and reports, which you can bundle into apps and distribute to your whole organization or to specific people or groups.
To remove the delay in content availability when a Power BI capacity resource scales up or down (in the Azure portal or through the Azure Resource Manager API), the Zero-Downtime-Capacity-Scale sample script calls the Power BI API and Resource Manager REST API to programmatically scale the capacity resource with no downtime.
Power BI Embedded is integrated with Azure Resource Health monitoring. Resource Health helps you monitor the availability of your resource and diagnose the root cause in case of unavailable status. Any status change will be reported in real time. Learn more.
Paginated reports functionality is now available in Power BI Premium, allowing you to view and interact with your pixel-perfect paginated reports right alongside your existing Power BI interactive reports in the Power BI portal.
