@dkbollig you can check out in-built facebook connector to see if it does that. Also you can use APIs if you can find facebook APIs that returns data that you're after.
I've build a custom data connector for Facebook Ads
You can just copy the mez file from https://github.com/Hugoberry/FacebookAds/tree/master/build into your
[My Documents]\Microsoft Power BI Desktop\Custom Connectors directory
and enable custom connectors in Power BI.
The FacebookAds connector now supports two functions. The initial functionality FacebookAds.Campaigns() will return you the insights for your campaigns.
The Second function FacebookAds.API(uri,params) is more of a credentials wrapper for the enitre MarketingAPI. You can tailor your requests as you want with it.
Hey...I just tried using this and got this error (replaced token with xxxxxxx).
DataSource.Error: Web.Contents failed to get contents from 'https://graph.facebook.com/v2.11/act_59096518/campaigns?access_token=xxxxxxx&fields=name' (400): Bad Request
Let me know if I'm missing something
DataSource.Error: Web.Contents failed to get contents from 'https://graph.facebook.com/v2.11/act_71**9815*******/campaigns?access_token=******=name' (400): Bad Request
You can go to my github page and download the Facebook Campaign Analytics PBI template. Open the template, add some inputs and your are done, you can analyze your Facebook campaigns, ad sets and ads easily through this template.
If you have any questions, please open up an issue in github.
I installed your connector and works like a charm. Just wanted to ask how can I sign out or change facebook user. I tried by clearing permissions but still remembers the first user I entered so there's no way to sign in with another user. https://www.screencast.com/t/vjk7d7FYb
Is there any way to make a reset?
I just released a new version of my open sourced Facebook Ads connector.
The new release includes support for scheduled refresh on powerbi.com
A ready-to-go connector is available for download on my sponsor Scitylana's website, https://www.scitylana.com/connectors
Link to Gihub is available here.
I have connected FB ads data successfully using your connector.
But PBI service powerbi.com could not refresh data.
Could you suggest any solution for this error.
You can't schedule refresh for this dataset because the following data sources currently don't support refresh:
Query contains unknown function name: FacebookAds.Ads Unknown function name: FacebookAds.Ads is a valid Mashup library function name format. Hence fail the operation.
