Building Your First Application with the Power BI REST API

by Auret Swanepoel

Power BI has a rich set of features, including endpoints that can be used by developers. In this course, you will learn how you can extend the Power BI capabilities into an external application.

What you'll learn

Power BI has a full set of features that allows you to create and host reports for your organization to interact with. However, these reports are within the Power BI environment and outside users or applications won't be able to view or render them. In this course, Building Your First Application with the Power BI REST API, you will learn how to call the API endpoints and render Power BI objects within an application that lives outside of Power BI. First, you will learn how to register an app in Azure. Next, you will discover how to implement a web API that will fire off requests against Power BI. Finally, you will explore how to create a front-end application to render the objects. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of the Power BI endpoints needed to render and retrieve any object externally to Power BI.
