Limitations of the Power BI API

We are using the Power BI API to dynamically embed reports in our web application. It works really well for managing access for large amounts of users in our application without having to manage individual PBI accounts.
However, we’ve noticed a couple of limitations compared to accessing dashboards and reports directly in PBI.
1 - The click-through to a report from a dashboard visualisation doesn’t work
2 - You can’t export to PDF, PowerPoint etc
Just wondering if anyone is doing the same thing as us and has found a way to overcome these limitations? The first one is a lot more serious for us
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer
