Using eG REST API for Pulling Data into Power BI

Using Power BI as the REST client, you can easily retrieve the following types of data from the eG database into Power BI directly:

  • Analytical data - e.g., detailed diagnosis, count of alarms, trend data, configuration changes, measure history etc.

  • Miscellaneous data - e.g., zone details, managed component details, monitored application details etc.

However, before you attempt to run the API commands from Power BI, make sure that the pre-requisites outlined in the Pre-requisites for Integrating eG Enterprise with Power BI Using eG REST API topic are fulfilled.
