Chris,
Thanks for posting this.
I am trying to export my Power BI report to PDF, using Powershell, and am able to do so for the default view. However, I need to apply filters dynamically and then export the report for each value. I created a bookmark, called "Test_Bookmark", but when I use that as the value for defaultBookmark, the script errors out. I assume I need to use the GUID like you are using. Where/how can I find that bookmark ID/GUID?
Thanks
