Can I redirect instead of Embedding Google Data Studio?
Yes, you can, regrettably, when the topic is clearly embedding, telling others to redirect will make you sound silly.
Some mention a redirect being viable – this is true if you know how to manage a redirect, and considering most people don’t know how to build redirects and are interested in the words in the title of the forum posts, ’embed google data studio.’

4. Take Screenshot your report/dashboard. If it’s very clean, make an SVG to keep it very clean.

From a Google Employee!
Hi all [Google Employee – Google Data Studio Engineer],
— thanks for all the feedback on embedding!
An update from the Data Studio team: we are actively working on enabling the first of many use cases for embeddable reports. We’ll start by making it possible to embed a public report (shared via Google Drive as “On – Public on the web” or “On – Anyone with the link”) in public pages such as blog posts or other pages that don’t require authentication.
Is this a use case that you’re interested in? Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and refer to this thread. We’d love to whitelist some users for this upcoming feature!
We’ll work on more complex embedding after launching this first phase, so stay tuned on that. Thanks all!

It works wonders for our business intelligence clients.

Embed Google Data Studio Update
Before 6/19/17 – Google is actively changing the UI, and I believe there will be more updates regarding this feature, it’s the number one important piece of the puzzle to be enterprise ready, but do not get your hopes up on this piece being available anytime soon.
Google, as a company, has their hands in many revolutionary products coming soon! I for one am very excited to see this product revolutionize the data industry and change the pricing structure of all business intelligence products.
We can’t cleanly embed Google data studio yet.
Google Data Studio is new, and this feature is not currently available, but if I know, one thing about business intelligence consulting. Also, in business intelligence consulting, sometimes you need to work around product limitations.
Currently, there are no natural means of embedding Google Studio reports or your Google Studio dashboards, on your website. Dev3lop’s blog is a workaround that will work for you today.
Did you know that Google data studio is
- the first viable free business intelligence offering with ETL
- with sharing capabilities, it’s fun and easy to use
- incredibly intuitive
The Future for Google Data Studio and Business Intelligence.
This will be eventually fulfilled and be a massive impact to the entire business intelligence market.
Consider an application that merely requires an account, a web browser, and internet connection. This means any and all current business intelligence platforms or software are now on the chopping block.
Google Data Studio is a free ETL product, a free reporting product, and soon it will have more embedding capabilities.
Outside of you sharing this link with some friend on accident because you were going to paste this. It would not be very challenging to train people how to use this in a secure fashion. For example;
Data security measures for Google Data Studio.
These steps may make any sys admin angry. This is merely for the people who want this to fly right now, and don’t have strict data governance policy.
- Use a VPN requirement
- Log in to a VM
- Offer the end user access to a landing page that fires off links and is hosted locally using simple HTML buttons
- Clicking this landing page takes them to the Google Data Studio dashboards
Or train everyone not to share the Google data studio link!
Best practice would always be more training! Express to end users that sharing the link could leak their data online. For now it’s beta, tread lightly.
Google Data studio security – a simple precautionary tale.
If security is a concern, meaning you don’t want anyone to have view access to your dashboard, use a password in front of this step. Just know anyone can see anything that is public on your website, and if your users are sharing the link, this will not be a viable solution – if security of your data is important.
If it’s not important – link the text using html.
