Power BI Embedded Walk Through Part 1 of 3

Power BI Embedded is an interesting approach to allow web applications to embed Power BI reports such that users of the application do not require any Office 365 account and user license. In trying to figure out how to do a simple demo for myself, I found the documentation to be fragmented. I will provide a simple end-to-end walkthrough of embedding a Power BI report into a web application.

The online documentation to help me piece together this walkthrough is as follows:

      High-level steps

  1. In Azure Portal, create workspace collection
  2. Create or use a Power BI report using Power BI Desktop
  3. Use the ProvisionSample code to import PBIX file and get embed details
  4. Create or use a web application
  5. Develop client side code to embed the Power BI report into the web application
  6. Test the application and embedded report

1.  Go to Azure Portal, create Power BI Embedded                                                                          Power BI Embedded Walk Through Part 1 of 3-1

3. Workspace collection

4. Where do I create a workspace? Where do I import a Power BI report file? Where do I get Power BI embed details for client side code?
You can’t at the moment. A disappointment if you ask me. You need to use the SDK and APIs from https://www.nuget.org/profiles/powerbi

Therefore, obtain the Access Keys to use the with SDK and APIs
