Power BI integration with MatLab


 I would like to know how I can integrate my MatLab code with PowerBI.

Is there a way that I can use MatLab within Power BI or a way to trigger my MatLab code through PowerBI? 

Can I use it before, during and after I import the data into my data model (like R)?

Is there any alternative approach? How can I set an API in order to do that?

Any advice on how to approach an integrated solution is very welcome.

Thank you,



Hi Andreas,


I'm afraid there isn't an official connector for now. I would suggest you create an idea here. As a workaround, can you save the Matlab data in a general file, like csv, xlsx, or the database. Then Power BI can read data from the file or database.

Hi @andreas_m @v-jiascu-msft ,


I am an employee of MathWorks and am happy to share that we *do* have an integration with PowerBI.

The details are here and a reference architecture package is available for download upon request.


Hope this is of help for future reference.
