Use Dataflow on data exported by IoT Central...

We are currently evaluating IoT Central, because of its ease-of-use and SaaS licensing model.

 

In IoT Central one can set up Continuous Data Export to either a Blob Storage, an Event Hub or a Service Bus Queue.

 

When using the continuously export to a blob storage option, data will be saved in AVRO-format (no options).

 

We would like to use that blob data and ingest i to PowerPI using the Azure Blob Connector within

a PowerBI Dataflow. However, when trying that all that shows up are the actual AVRO files listing. 

 

Is there any way to ingest IoT Central exported data into PowerBI using Dataflow Connectors?

Do we need to do something differently, like using a Data Factory for data transformation?

 

All comments welcome!

Is there a way to digest the AVRO data directly from Blob using a Dataflow?
