Need help publishing Javascript data to Streaming Dashboard

I am trying to create an example of a streaming dashboard in Power BI using a javascript random number generator with a date stamp. I have created the Javascript to get the values I need, but I don't know how to use the URL or cURL or Powershell to publish the fake data my Javascript is producing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Need help publishing Javascript data to Streaming Dashboard

Hi @BertRico,

 

Do you store the values somewhere? If not, I would suggest you use JS to push the data into Power BI. Please refer to the demo below.

1. Install Node.js.

2. Install the module "request".

3. Try the code below.

var request = require('request');


// the URL of Power BI streaming dataset.
var target_url = "https://api.powerbi.com/beta/*************************g%3D%3D"
// the data to push. It should be the values generated by JS to you.
var raw_data = {'ID': 1999, 'Name': "Jack"}
// convert a object to JSON.
var data_to_post = JSON.stringify(raw_data)


const req = request.post(target_url, data_to_post, (error, res, body) => {
    console.log(`Status code: ${res.statusCode}`);
});

req.on('error', (e) => {
    console.log("error: " + e.message);
});

req.write(data_to_post);
req.end;
