How do you guys pull in Zendesk data?

How do you guys pull in Zendesk data? 

 

Below are some of the ways I've found, but none (seem) great.  Let me know if I have misconception(s):

 

  • Get Data  > Zendesk connects, but is incredibly slow. 
  • Using the Zendesk App works, but that just gives preset visuals.  Not the raw data that can then be combined with other data sources /  interpreted via measures. 
  • Create custom reports in Zendesk, then manually export those to files - connect to the files.  Manual steps aren't good. 
  • Use the API to pull Zendesk data into a data warehouse, then connect Power BI to that warehouse.  Bit beyond my current abilities, and we don't really have available staff to implement that
  • Outsourcing the API/Warehouse to something like Stich.  Seems viable, just...we pull in a lot of data to Power BI, this is the first source that we'd be using an external service / all this hassle for. 

 

Compared to our other data sources (relatively easy to connect to and import from)- all these options kind of suck.

@mmace1,

You can connect to Zendesk.pbit in Power BI Desktop and combine other data sources in same PBIX file.
