In my last blog post, Integrating PowerShell with Power BI (Part 1), I set up the connection between Power BI and PowerShell.  If you followed the steps in part one, you are set to start using this newly created integration.  In this post I will take a look at how we use the Power BI module and how to visualize the data in Power BI reports.

Power BI is an extremely powerful data and visualization tool. It has opened a new world for me. But, the first thing I always think about when looking at Microsoft products is that there must be a way to control this with PowerShell. I did not find any useful information about any PowerShell module on the product pages.  After some googling, I found a module on the PowerShell gallery potentially created by a Microsoft employee.  What's surprising is that the module has been out for about 7 months and has barely 130 downloads.  Why hasn’t this been more popular? Hopefully I can help change this with a series of blog posts looking at the possibilities of Power BI and PowerShell.
