The Power BI connector / actions are now available for closed beta-testing.
The installer can be downloaded here: https://easymorph.com/download/EasyMorph.Setup410pbi.zip.
The installed version is identical to production v4.1 with the only addition of the “Power BI” connector, and actions “Export to Power BI” and “Power BI command”. It can be safely rolled over existing installations of v4.1 without any side effects.
Note that it’s NOT a beta of v4.2. For the purpose of testing only the Power BI connector/actions we’ve made a special build based on v4.1. However, the Power BI connector/actions will be officially released in v4.2 in mid-January.
Here is what to test:
Power BI connector
The both Power BI actions in EasyMorph (Export and Command) require a configured and authorized “Power BI” connector. You will need to use a Power BI account to authorize a connector.
Feel free to use the default EasyMorph application, if you haven’t created your organization’s own Power BI app.
Action “Export to Power BI”
The action exports data from EasyMorph into an existing, or new Power BI push-dataset. Under the hood exporting is done by batches of 10K rows. Large datasets can take a few minutes to export. Before exporting, all values in EasyMorph data are automatically validated for possible type mismatching with Power BI data types. Type auto-detection can identify appropriate Power BI data types for exported column in EasyMorph.
When a dataset is created, it can only be created with one table.
Action “Power BI Command”
This action can perform 3 commands:
- List of available datasets + dataset attributes
- Delete rows in a dataset table
- Refresh dataset (only makes sense for non-push datasets)
Please report anything confusing, bugs, problems with Power BI in this topic. Feature suggestions are welcome too.
