Connection Details

  • Workspaces - you can provide a workspace name by simply typing it or clicking Sign In button to log in to your Power Bi account and list available workspaces.
  • Premium Workspace checkbox - check this box if you have any problem with importing your workspace (this is an alternative method of connecting to Power Bi), available when your workspace has premium capacity.
  • XMLA Endpoint - if you have checked Premium Workspace, you will also see this box where you need to place the Endpoint. For instructions on how to get this value, see Connection Requirements.
  • Document only report pages - in case of timeouts, you can check this box. Dataedo will document only reports' pages, which should help avoid timeouts during the import process.
