Today we are announcing the support for R visuals in Power BI Embedded. R visuals not only enhance Power BI Embedded with advanced analytics depth but also offers developers endless visualization flexibility. Check out our demo to see how the technology works!
How it works
Power BI Embedded is an Azure cloud service that allows ISVs and application developers to embed stunning and fully interactive visual analytics elements into applications. Embedding the data visualization within an app provides analytics in the right user context and with the right timing. On top of the modern reports and interactive visualization, you can now add advanced analytics R visuals such as business forecasts, clustering, and decision trees. You can see examples in the Power BI R showcase. The advanced analytics visuals are implemented by the R service as part of the Power BI Embedded Service.
Publishing Power BI Embedded reports with R visuals is like publishing other embedded reports, and requires the following steps :
1. Create a report using Power BI Desktop
Tips: download a report example with R visuals, learn how to author reports with R visuals
2. Provision the report into Azure management portal (documentation)
Tips: REST documentation , JS documentation
4. Let your users consume the embedded report and interact with it as part of your application.
