Enterprise Gateway & Auto refresh with Amazon Athena-ODBC Connection

Hi,

 

We are exploring an option to connect to Amazon Athena using Power BI to build some reprots. Seems like we can do that in Power bi using ODBC conenction. Few questions:

  1. Is it possible to publish the report and set up auto refreshes?
  2. Are there any challenges setting up Enterprise Gateway for ODBC connections (to Athena)?
  3. Any overall challenges for report, filters, I should be aware of?

 

Would appreciate more insights.

 

Thanks

Mansi

Hi @mansivora,

 

AFAIK, current power bi odbc connector not support auto refresh. You can consider to use gateway to setup schedule refresh for that datasource.


Maybe you can take a look at following sample project to create a custom connector to achieve direct query mode for odbc datasource:

DirectQuery For SQL ODBC
