Re: how to connect to github and import csv file into power bi

I know that I can use the web connector.  But I was also interested to learn how to use the github connector.

I will accept the solution even if there is no solution provided due to the fact that you have reported this issue internally and that you will come back to me with a solution in a near future.

 

Best regards,

Sorry for any inconvenience. Currently, you could use web connector as a workaround.

Hello,

 

You are connecting via an web connection.  This was my second solution.  

I wish that someone show me how to use the github connection with the proposed data set, just to see how it works.

 

So, if someone is really confortable with the use of the github connection, please let me know how to do it.

Regards,

Re: how to connect to github and import csv file into power bi

Good morning,

 

Thanks a lot for reporting this issue internally.  As we are still waiting to get a solution from the team responsible of Power BI,

should I reply, accept it as a solution while the solution is not available?

 

What do you suggest?
