  1. Custom Connector as a Portable Library of Functions

    Currently, a custom connector requires a Data Source and a Authentication record associated to a function in order to be Published or exposed in the 'Get Data' dialog/window.
    This is perfectly fine for data sources, but if I want to create a custom connector that creates data using native M functions, like. List.Generate or List.Dates, then I shouldn't have to define a Data Source nor an Authentication which complicates things and is an unnecessary step for the end user.

    Here are 2 videos showcasing 2 functions that do not need any sort of authentication, but due to the way custom…

        • OBIEE Connector

          Create a custom connector where we can directly connect to OBIEE RPD and subject areas. The Metadata can be refreshed which can be easily used to build the reports & visualize the data in MSBI.

          Thanks,
          -Naveen

            • mysql 5.1

              Estou a 3 horas tentando conectar o power bi ao meu banco mysql 5.1 e nada.
              Quero apresentar ao um cliente, mas o software não oferece uma interface fácil de conexão com base de dados, podia ser mais fácil e ja sugerir as versões dos bancos ao informar qual o meu banco mysql, o software ja devia trazer os drivers odbc ou ... para aquela versão e conectar.

              • Direct connection to Veeva Vault

                Can we have a direct connector for Veeva Vault like we have for Salesforce and SAP? Veeva Vault supports REST API.
                I am not sure how to connect to Veeva Vault's API using Power BI.
