Power BI Weekly Issue 174: 13th September 2022

This week, a significant change in the security for Power BI Datamarts has been released, which is intoduced using the fancy terminology "AAD-based filtration for Power BI Datamarts", which in reality translates to a new tenant setting that allows you to specify the AAD groups which are allowed to create Datamarts. The other announcement this week is that the Power BI component for Vue.js applications is now available - so if you use Vue as your front-end framework, embedding Power BI just got a whole lot easier.

Elsewhere this week, my colleage James has written the first part of a series of posts around our Insight Discovery process with the brilliant article Why do data projects often fail? - explaining the pitfalls of bottom-up approaches to delivering insights and "one size fits all" data models. Also this week, Chris Webb has written the last of his Power Automate + Power BI Enhanced Refresh API blog series with the article Part 5: Getting A Dataset’s Refresh History.
