Power BI connectivity to C4C

Hi there,

Is it possible to connect Power BI to C4C? Has anyone achieved this and if so, how? I like the self-service capabilities of Power BI and have created some dashboard using excel as a data source (which came from using the C4C Excel add-in) but i would like to be able to connect directly to C4C via Power BI

Thanks in advance

    • No I did not unfortunately. Hoping SAP has a roadmap of some sort to include Power BI as a data visualization tool but my gut feel is they will stick to Lumira..

    We can use the OData services to pull the C4C data to Power BI for data analysis, but this can be only be done with users having some technical knowledge about the OData services in the system and all. If we have some addon like excel add-in for power BI which lists all the available OData services with some WYSIWYG query builder for restricting the data before download, Then it can be used by non technical users also and it will be great.

    Not sure If I have to open a new Idea again.

    • Hi Sandico,

      Yes you are correct, C4C OData feed will be source to PowerBI.

      There are 3 options after 1808 release in C4C to expose C4C Data collections as OData feed.

      1) We can expose Data Sources in C4C as OData feed

      2) We can expose C4C Reports as OData Feed

      3) New OData V2 APIs (c4codataapi)

      you can use any of the above.
