Power BI is a business analytics service by Microsoft. It aims to provide interactive visualizations and business intelligence capabilities with an interface simple enough for end users to create their own reports and dashboards.

A CafeOne layout with URL content is design to dynamically link to Power BI reports.

The following shows an example of a Power BI Report URL link with dynamic filter:


When adding filters onto an embedded link for power BI this is the syntax:

    URL?filter=Table/Field eq 'value'
In this example,  &filter=pCompany/pCompany eq 34   where 34 is the dynamic link value from the Branch/Plant column in E1 form.
It requires an eq instead of an =, but CafeOne does not recognize that as a Parameter ending point so the Parameter ends up being "Filter", and the value gets filled in as the Power BI parameters instead of the dynamic value that need to pass into the syntax (in this case 34).


Is there a way to map that value to the correct parameter (&filter=pCompany/pCompany eq)?
