Configure Power BI connector

Configure the data connector in Power BI to retrieve information from the Bot Insight API to enable data analytics.


Ensure that your user name is registered in the Control Room and that you have the Bot Insight Admin, AAE_Admin, or the Bot Insight COE Admin role assigned to you.

Note: The Power BI Connector is supported with Database Authenticated Control Room and Active Directory authentication.

  2. Click Get Data.
    The list of all the Power BI certified connectors appears.

    For information about how to access non-certified custom connectors, see Connector extensibility in Power BI.
