Pipedrive Integration

Hi,

We are exploring Pipedrive (www.pipedrive.com) and may begin using it in the coming weeks. We are quite heavy Power BI users however and there is no native integration. Has anyone figured out a work around to get the data into Power BI? They have a JSON API - I was wondring if this could be used to import data?

Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

To import data into a publish report, you can follow this toturial, Push data into a Power BI dashboard. Power BI Services provides the APIs that are also JSON based. Just call the Pipedrive API, reform and send the returned JSON to Power BI services, say in C#, and schedule a windows task to import in a certain interval automatically.

Thank you both for the suggestiosn - I've now experience in either of these methods but will try them out when we get to that point. Either way it's reassuring that accessing the data should be possible.

Much appreciated.

You can’t connect Pipedrive with PowerBI directly without coding, but there are several approaches to consider. You can replicate your data to the data warehouse (BigQuery, Redshift, etc) with the help of Skyvia and then connect it to PowerBI. Another way is to use Odata connector.

I have tried to use the Odata connector but I've had no luck. Any suggestions?

Hi Maracles,

 

I'm aware that you've already arrived at a solution for your issue but I'd like to share something that might help others in the same predicament. For integrating PipeDrive with Power BI, check out a 3rd party integration tool called Tenfold. It not only integrates conversations in real-time, it does data pretty well, too. They've got 100s of pre-built connectors available including one for Power BI and Pipedrive so the setup process won't take more than 3 hours of your time.

KloudConnectors (kloudconnectors.com) makes it easy to sync data between web apps.

With a solution like the one suggested by @Eric_Zhang, will I be able to use Power BI Desktop for creating reports based on the data I push into Power BI?

Can you write a tutorial to connect Pipedrive? I´m not a developer or "IT guy".

Not an expert on Pipedrive either. You can follow https://developers.pipedrive.com/docs/api/v1

I am thinking that your best bet would be to use R to call your JSON API, should be similar to this article:
