How to port Khoros Community analytics to PowerBI?

Hello,

 

I help manage a Community that is hosted on the Lithium Khoros Community platform. I am interested in utilizing Khoros's Bulk Data API  to push Community usage data to a PowerBI dashboard so that we can customize the data and run more sophisticated reporting. Is there any documentation on the PowerBI site on how to do this? 

 

I believe there used to be a PowerBI Lithium Content pack but I cannot find it on AppSource. Is there a way to manually create a connection between Khoros Community analytics and PowerBI so that community data flows automatically to PowerBI on a daily/weekly basis? Please let me know if you can help!

Hi @jjchen 

Yeah the Lithium Content pack appears to be defunct even though the blog posts are still up about it.  You can create your own connectionto the API and pull data in that way.  Useful info to get started:

https://www.myonlinetraininghub.com/connecting-to-an-oauth-api-like-paypal-with-power-query

The specific requirements of the API and how-to authenticate, connect and retrieve data will be documented in the Khoros API doco you linked to above.

Once yuo've created the report in PBI Desktop you can then publish your reports to the Power BI Service and configure auto-refresh on the dataset.

Phil
