Moving to backlog from review
This is a great article by Inno! shows how to connect Power BI to SAP Successfactors!!!
(How to connect SAP Successfactors data to Microsoft Power BI)
Very sad we can not have working an API for OData from Successfactors to Power Bi.
For my part, Successfactors reporting is very poor, as ORD does not integrate well LMS and HCM.
Hello MS Power BI Product team, Many of my existing clients have implemented SAP SuccessFactors as HRIS system like Microsoft has SF for its employees. Few of them want to retain Power BI as an analytics solution . But I came to know we don't have standard integration in place for it. So, we would like to have this connector in place soon .
Thanks for understanding.
This is something that would help our current reporting requirements.
Voted, we would certainly utilise a connector
Right now there is no update and no immediate plans to build one in house.
That said with the connector SDK this should now be possible to do by anybody talented with M.
It seems that quite some people are in need of this. Is there any idea of when this will be available or at least moved from backlog to the next step?
This has been in "backlog" for almost a year. Are we going to see SuccessFactors.com as a data source any time soon? Ever?
updates from MS on this please!? been way too long in the making for this issue
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.
