Power BI Visualization of data based on the JSON data from Backend

I want to ask if this feature available in power BI,

I have a web site 'portal' build using Angular , I want to show  reports inside portal Dashboard , the report will be based on the user who is logged In.I have a Backend REST API where reports dynamic JSON data is retrived based on the user.


Does the Power BI REST API support the visualization of data (like Pie,Bar,Area Charts) based on the JSON data by only passing the JSON data and  not uploading with an excel or sql databases or datasets?

Hi @Anonymous 

If you are looking for live data feed (Real-time streaming) please read read through this
To embed power Bi with in your application, you will need Premium or Embedded Capacity  so I sugest you reaserch this too.

@Mariusz Gone through the Real time Streaming in Power BI .It does not gives the answers what I am really expecting  😞

Does we need to set new streaming datasets with the values similar to my backend API response fields so that I can create charts and how does this work?

Where should I specify my api endpoints to power BI so that they can retrive the my JSON data?
