Microsoft Power BI XMLA


You can use the Microsoft Power BI XMLA connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Microsoft Power BI XMLA and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Microsoft Power BI XMLA, you first must establish a connection to Microsoft Power BI XMLA. Follow these steps to connect Microsoft Power BI XMLA to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Microsoft Power BI XMLA row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Azure Tenant - Enter the Microsoft Online tenant that you want to use to access data. If you do not specify a tenant, the default tenant is used.

  6. Click Connect to PowerBIXMLA to connect to your Power BI XMLA account.

  7. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  8. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
