Using custom Python in PowerBI Service?

 

I have been experimenting with using some 'custom' Python code as a data source in Power BI Desktop.  This code connects to a Cognos TM1 server, pulls data into a Dataframe, and subsequently into a table in Power BI Desktop.  This works fine in Desktop. 

 

My question is, will this work in the PowerBI service if I publish it?  Is it possible to refresh the data?  How would the service 'know' about the Python libraries I am using that I have installed in my desktop Anaconda Python environement?

Re: Using custom Python in PowerBI Service?

Hi @dhorrall

I'm afraid it doesn't support Python in the PowerBI service currently, and it is not possible to refresh data.

a list of Python packages are supported in Power BI Desktop, but they aren't supported in Power BI Service.

Power BI Team are currently looking into how to support this.

 

Best Regards

Maggie
