Which URL do I need to paste?

Login to your Power BI account, go to the Dashboard or the Report you would like to display, and copy the link directly from the address bar. Paste that link to the aforementioned “Enter URL” field.

If you have a dashboard with multiple reports and you want to display all of them, one after the other, then copy the dashboard’s URL. Otherwise, copy the URL of a specific report of yours.
