Access Egnyte via PowerBI

Access Egnyte via PowerBI

Would be great if Egnyte and Microsoft could find a way to access data housed on egnyte through PowerBI.com

this would be super helpful for dashboard reports and updates.. 

Can use the PowerBI Desktop client as a workaround i guess..

not sure thats of any value, you can already connect to PowerBI from the desktop using connect... as a mapped drive source and the PowerBI desktop gateway to refresh the files.. 

Would you like to clarify further?

Native cloud connection so you can refresh from the web! now that would be exciting

Hi Everyone, 

Happy to announce that we are going to be ready in early July with the Power BI Custom Data Connector, which will work with both Power BI Desktop to create reports from Egnyte using XLS, and CSV/Text files - you will be able to select multiple files to mash up, and use for reporting. Based on your feedback - Power BI Service (a.k.a cloud) auto-refresh functionality will also work through MS On-premises gateways with the OAuth to ensure security and permissions as you collaborate. 

Please let me know here or your CSMs if you are interested in trying out beta.
