Real Time Data from app

Hi all,

 

I need help, on how to create visualizations for real time data (logs) generated by an application.

Which would be the best solution for doing this ?

 

I observed straming dataset, but I have some questions and concerns, how long is the data stored ?

Also which tipe of data can I send ? I saw only 3 types of data (numeric, date, and text) Are these the only type of data supported ?

 

Thanks in advance,

Best regards

Hey @leojav ,

 

the information you provided is a little scarce, for this please refer to this document

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/connect-data/service-real-time-streaming

 

and this one for Push Datasets

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/automation/walkthrough-push-data#:~:text=%20Step...

 

Regarding the data types, a lot of real time data is based on json documents, as json basicall is text more complex data types like binaries require a completely different approach.

 

Hopefully, this provides at least some new insights to the challenges you are facing.

 

Regards,

Tom
