Power BI Premium Workspaces and Datasets

Applies to: Dataedo 23.x (current) versions, Article available also for: 10.x, 24.x

Power BI Premium allows you to connect to workspaces and datasets with XMLA endpoint. XMLA is the same communication protocol used by the Microsoft Analysis Services engine, and Dataedo uses the same connector as the Analysis Services Tabular.


In order to enable XMLA endpoint your workspace has to be in Premium mode (either Premium per capacity or Premium per user) or in Embedded mode.
