Embedding a Power BI Report in SharePoint

Embedding a Power BI Report in SharePoint

In this video, Jonathan Silva from Pragmatic Works demonstrates the straightforward process of embedding a Power BI report into a SharePoint site. Here's a detailed summary of the steps and tips he shared:


Getting Started with SharePoint

  • Adding a Web Part: Silva begins by highlighting the importance of adding a web part in SharePoint, a common process also used for adding forms, lists, and other elements.
  • Placement of the Web Part: He advises placing the web part at the desired location on the SharePoint page, ideally at the top for easy visibility.

Integrating Power BI

  • Selecting Power BI Web Part: Silva instructs on selecting the Power BI option from the list of available web parts in SharePoint.
  • Adding the Report: The next step involves adding the report to the SharePoint site. This requires navigating to the Power BI report and using its URL.

Managing Report Links

  • URL Usage: Silva emphasizes understanding what part of the URL to use. Capturing the entire URL links to a specific report page, while using a truncated URL allows access to all pages within the report.
  • URL Pasting in SharePoint: After copying the appropriate URL from Power BI, it should be pasted back in SharePoint to link the report.

Customizing Display Options

  • Page Selection: Users can choose which page of the report to display, offering flexibility in what information is shown.
  • Navigation Pane: Silva suggests toggling the navigation pane off for a cleaner look if only one page is needed.
  • Aspect Ratio Adjustment: Changing the display from 16:9 to 4:3 is recommended for a broader view of the report.
  • Filter Pane Visibility: Deciding whether to show the filter pane depends on the user's preference and the report's requirements.
  • Action Bar Display: Silva prefers to disable the action bar to streamline the appearance, focusing on the report's visuals.

Finalizing and Sharing

  • Preview and Adjustment: Users can preview the embedded report, making adjustments as necessary.
  • Publishing the Page: Once satisfied, the page can be republished on the SharePoint site, making the report visible and interactive.


  • Ease of Process: Silva concludes by reiterating the ease of embedding a Power BI report into SharePoint using a web part.
  • Accessibility for Employees: This integration facilitates easier access to vital information for employees visiting the SharePoint site.
  • Encouragement for Engagement: Silva ends by encouraging viewers to like and subscribe for more content from himself and Pragmatic Works.
