Re: Instagram data in power bi

Hi @Anonymous,

Yeah, it's not working now. You vote it, just let PG know more people need the feature. So that it may be considered to develop, but not sure. It's up to PG's work. I really thank you for understanding.

Best Regards,
Angelia

Re: Instagram data in power bi

You can use pre-built third-party integrations as an alternative solution to pull different Instagram data points in Power BI.

If you are using cloud data warehouse like Amazon Redshift or Google BigQuery to store your data, you can try Instagram Business IQ connector by Openbridge for collecting account and media data, and connect it to Power BI: https://openbridge.com/product/openbridge-instagram-business-iq.

The connector is free to use and gets you access to the following data:
- media metadata including account, media and user identification data and URLs
- media insights for video, photo, carousel album and stories include impressions, likes, reach, saved media, video views
- business account metadata including account ID, Facebook account ID biography, followers and follow counts, media count, name, profile picture URL, username and website
- business account insights including impressions, reach, gender and age distribution, location distribution, audience country distribution, audience city, online followers, followers count, email contacts, phone call clicks, text message clicks, get directions clicks, website clicks and profile views

If you are not using any data warehouse yet, Redshift and BigQuery offer free trials. You can sign up and connect either one to Power BI.

Be aware, with recent legacy Instagram API changes, you need to transfer to Instagram Business Account in order to get access to performance data.

Hope this helps!

Re: Instagram data in power bi

hi @Greg_Deckler,
thank you for your directions.
I read so many documents about that topic. but I couldn't establish a connection to Instagram via power BI
Is there someone that you know who has managed to connect to Instagram?

Hi @michaelbilling
 Thank you for  your solution .


This one only connects to Facebook.  I cannot be able to connect to Instagram. When I push the Instagram connector button it shows me facebook page for permission.

 

Do you know how to connect with this connector? Or  Did  you use  this connector  before  to connect Instagram

 

Best regards
Sinan
