The CData Power BI Connector for MarkLogic 2019 hooks into Power BI's two modes for Querying Data:
- DirectQuery: Visualizing data in real time by connecting directly to the data at the source.
- Import: Embedding data in a report, which can be refreshed on demand. This is the most common way to get data. Importing data takes advantage of the Power BI query engine.
You select the data connectivity mode when Getting Data. The following sections describe the basics of Visualizing Data, which are defining filters, aggregating data, and joining tables when working with remote data.
