Running Power Automate flows from Power BI reports
You can now call Power Automate flows from within your Power BI reports:
Start by adding a Power BI Automate connector visual to your report.
After adding a Power Automate visual, you need to edit it:
Click on the visual, then choose Edit from the visual header menu to edit it.
