Adding Custom filters - Custom PowerBI Connector

Hello all,

 

Is it possible to add filter to Custom Connector with data loaded from API (list of values). We are already using static "xxx Duration" (days) with numbers 1..30. This is working fine. Hower would it be possible to implement list loaded ahead and pre filter data in Navigation Table with the value user picks at the beginning. Something like below print screen(the "xxx Name" list values are just static values only for test purpose here). Could you please point to right direction if there is any implementation as per this topic? Thank you

Hi @OndrejH ,

I found some blogs about creating custom connectors and a thread with the same needs as yours, hopefully the methods used in them will help you.

Power BI Custom Connector – Quick Start

Custom Data Connector: How to Deploy and Test 

Custom Connectors - how to pass parameters (see the message 6 from seadude)

There is an easier way to pass parameters in the URL. When creating a Custom Connector, use "{}" in the path for each dynamic parameter. 

**Example:**

https://test.com/api/{version}/{parameter1}/test
