Is there a way to display content (Report/Dashboard/Tile) from Power BI on a Confluence page?

You can share your Power BI Dashboard in two ways. The first one is to share for public and the second one is to share fo Microsoft Sharepoint.

The Problem with the first option is that everybody in the World Wide Web can see your Dashboard. I do not need to explain that is a problem.

The second way is more safe but the iFrame Link only works in Microsoft Sharepoint. 

I still could not find a way to have a Power Bi dashboard in Confluence.

Additionally it looks like the iFrame links only work on so called Modern pages in Sharepoint.

I was able to get it to work.  I used the HTML Macro, and just dropped in the iframe tag that power BI generates.  Works pretty well.  My only issue is it doesn't seem to refresh quickly.  I haven't been able to figure out what is causing the lag.

Jason, how exactly did you do this?

"iframe tag" - Do you mean the Embed to Sharepoint online url that can be generated for a report, but not for a dashboard?

"HTML Macro" - I don't see a macro with this name, at least in the default Confluence Cloud. Is that some custom macro from the marketplace?

Did you ever find the answer?

Kimmo - the iframe tag is probably referring to this:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/report-server/quickstart-embed

the HTML Macro is disabled on newer versions of Confluence Server and needs to be manually enabled in the Add Ons section. I'm not sure what the options are in Cloud.

I don't know how our Microsoft stuff is set up or licensed, but I do not have the same options as detailed in that first link from Microsoft. Still searching!
