Custom Visuals in Power BI

Custom visuals are created by developers, using the custom visuals SDK, to enable business users to see their data in a way that fits the business best. Report authors can then import the custom visuals files into their reports and use them as any other Power BI visuals. Custom visuals are 1st class citizens in Power BI and can be filtered, highlighted, edited, shared, etc.

Custom visuals can be in the form of 3 deployment channels:

  • Custom visual files
  • Organization visuals
  • Marketplace visuals

Custom visuals are packages that include code for rendering the data that is served to them.
