Power BI XMLA Icon Power BI XMLA ODBC Driver

The Power BI XMLA ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with live data from Power BI XMLA, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Access Power BI XMLA data like you would a database - read, write, and update Power BI XMLA FALSE, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Connect to Power BI XMLA Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Power BI XMLA data as a data source.

The CData ODBC Driver for Power BI XMLA seamlessly integrates Power BI XMLA data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Power BI XMLA data as a database. This article shows how to create an data source for Power BI XMLA in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Power BI XMLA Data into DBArtisan Projects

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

By default, use Azure AD to connect to Microsoft Power BI XMLA. Azure AD is Microsoft’s multi-tenant, cloud-based directory and identity management service. It is user-based authentication that requires that you set AuthScheme to AzureAD.

For more information on other authentication schemes, refer to the Help documentation.

You can then follow the steps below to register Power BI XMLA data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to Power BI XMLA data. Power BI XMLA entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Power BI XMLA data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Power BI XMLA API.
