Querying Power BI REST APIs within a Power BI Dataset
Would you like to build a Power BI dataset that could inventory your Power BI workspaces, reports, datasets, and refresh schedule? Would you like to query another dataset to import into your dataset? In this session I'll show you how to leverage an open-source custom connector that connects to Power BI's REST APIs to do just that.
This session introduces the open-source Power Query Custom Data Connector for Power BI REST APIs (https://github.com/kerski/powerquery-connector-pbi-rest-api-commercial), how to use it in Power BI Desktop, and I provide you a free Power BI template to get started for your current or next Power BI project. This session supports both those working with Power BI Commercial or Government Community Cloud.
