Big thank you to https://github.com/klinejordan for contributing to this repo!

A Microsoft Power BI Data Connector or Power Query Connector for the Power BI REST API.

The goal of this connector is to enable you as an end-user or a tenant admin to easily:

  • Create a catalogue of all the resources deployed to your tenant
    • Dashboards
    • Reports
    • Datasets
    • Dataflows
    • Gateways
  • Retrieve a list of the members and types of access for each member inside an app workspace 'aka' Group
  • Analyze Refresh history and error codes Power BI REST API Connector

Some API end points perform poorly on large tenants, and as such we have included those in an "Experimental" folder as we cannot guarantee performance of these queries.
