I need to create a power bi dashboard with PI events. can we also acknowledge them from power bi?
There is no inbuilt capability in Power BI to acknowledge AF Event Frames. We have a web product called PI Vision that can do just that.
With that said, you might be able to create a custom visual in Power BI and make a HTTP PATCH call to PI Web API to acknowledge the event frame. Seems that the custom visuals are coded in Typescript.

Thanks for the response! I want to create a visual with events for child elements as well which is not possible in PI Vision as of now. Do you have any example of how to make http patch call to PI Web API?
You can use the jQuery PI Web API client library. The EventFrame property of the top level PIWebApi object gives you access to the EventFrameApi which has an acknowledge method that you can use. The only parameter that you have to feed in is the webId of the Event Frame.
