Authorize access to Power BI through UpSlide
UpSlide needs the user's consent for the Power BI to PowerPoint/Word feature to work. As an organization admin, you can grant all users consent to Power BI resources. Please follow all the steps this article explains: Power BI Integration - Grant consent to all users.
How does it work
UpSlide's Power BI to PowerPoint/Word feature is powered by a web browser, Chromium, which is embedded into UpSlide using a wrapper called Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF). UpSlide uses Chromium to:
- display Power BI reports
- take screenshots of visuals or report pages
- display some user interface components to provide a smoother experience
Microsoft's Power BI Desktop app also uses CEF for the same purpose. Chromium is only used to execute trusted content, either web assets embedded within UpSlide's signed binaries or provided by Microsoft Power BI Embedded platform.
