[Streaming Data] Which es the best way to push data without custom app?

Hi everyone, I am running what is new in power bi for me, streaming project. I read documentation about the types the tool can succed and I definitly need PUSH DATA. My customer is asking to be able to create reports/measures and doesn't want a custom app to push.

 

My investigation says I only have two ways, streaming analytics and microsoft flow. Is there another possibility?

 

Can anyone tell me the difference or best approach to this? Does any of the technologies have limitations?

 

Regards,

P/D I didn't know if it is here were streaming questions should be, but couldn't find better place.

Hi @ibarrau

 

Once you have created a streaming dataset, it does show you examples where you can use C#, Curl or PowerShell.

 

What I did in the past was to create a PowerShell script that got the required data and pushed it into the Power BI Streaming dataset.

Then what I did was to schedule the running of the PowerShell script, so it would then push the data into the Streaming dataset.


This just required some working knowledge of PowerShell.

Hi there

This documentation should get you on your way.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-real-time-streaming

Also once you have created the streaming dataset, there are PowerShell examples that you can use to test.
