        Incidentally, one of my colleagues implemented a utility in c#. The SF OData feed has invalid characters in the XML and other issues so has to be cleaned before XML libraries will handle it. He read the schema, build a SQL schema from that and loaded it. It is stable currently but initially SF kept changing the spelling of fields and other silly changes without warning every weekend. Now we have a developer check it on Monday morning and fix whatever is required. I wouldn't bank on being able to provide a stable connector without working closely with SAP.

        This is more than 1.5 years old and its not been considered. March 03, 2017 was when this was requested and it has 162 votes as of today. What is the point of paying for your services if we cant achieve what we need.

        Please act on this immediately.

        Please, is there any option to get data in Power bi from success factors?

        There are 85 votes and i am not sure the PowerBI team is waiting for us as customers to develop the code and deploy it for them.

        When asked with Microsoft, their response is

        "This is the information we got from product group

        Thanks! We’ll check to confirm, but it looks like this feed is insufficiently OData-standards-compliant for us to be able to consume it. The OData connector in Excel is considerably more tolerant of non-compliant feeds."

        HOW IMPRESSIVE!!!

        absolutely critical as we're implementing multiple SF modules and we already use Power BI.
