Thanks for the suggestion, Kevin! Who else is interested in using MongoDB/ElasticSearch? Please add your votes!
Thanks for your feedback, Anmol.
You can already connect to MongoDB using Excel/Power Query or the Power BI Designer, and using an ODBC driver.
Thanks for the feedback!
You can achieve this today by authoring your reports with either Excel (Power Query, Power Pivot, Power View) or the Power BI Designer. You can access the Source step in your query and reconfigure it to point to a different Server/DB, etc. as the last change to the file before bringing it into the service.
Is that what you're looking for? Any disadvantages with the current solution?
Would you be able to send us a frown in the Designer and include details about the error that you're hitting? We can troubleshoot the issue from there.
Thanks for the feedback.
You can currently import data from an Access Database using the Power BI Designer, or Excel (via Power Query). After building the report with these tools, you can publish it to the Power BI Service.
Did you try this approach? Did you find any issues with it?
Thanks for the feedback - Are you asking for a "Refresh All" button in the Designer, in the Power BI Dashboards Service or in Power Query?
Thanks for the feedback, Brett - Currently you can access Informix using the Power BI Designer or Power Query, via ODBC data source.
Did you try this approach? Any show-stoppers that you found with it?
One way of solving this is by using a 3rd party IP-Location API and connect to it from Power Query. You can invoke that service over a table with IPs and get back the Lat/Long information.
