Guy in a Cube examines the On-Premises Data Gateway for PowerBI, although it can work with more than just PowerBI these days.
In this video, Adam from Guy in a Cube looks at how you can use Active Directory custom attributes for the user lookup with the Power BI Gateway.
This can be used for both Analysis Services mapping and the Kerberos SSO with DirectQuery connections.
New month, new year, new features. This is what makes PowerBI amazing.
Guy in a Cube just posted a new video and, as always, it’s a must watch!
Here’s a nice little video from the Power BI engineering team about the features they released in 2017.
Another great update to an already awesome tool.
From the video description:
This month we are very excited to integrate our Q&A experience into the reporting canvas, offering a whole new way to create your visuals. We are also updating our bookmarking preview with new features that provide you much more flexibility. A highly requested feature, the ability to drill to filter other visuals on the page, is also coming out this month. You can take advantage of several new connectors and major updates to existing ones.
Guy in a Cube has a great video of Patrick showing how to work with images in Power BI.
And, no, he isn’t talking about adding a logo into your report. This is about how you can integrate visuals in your visuals based on your data.
Here’s a great webinar on how to design stunning reports in Power BI.
The November 2017 updates see conditional formatting get a major update with the ability to control the color based on rules.
If you have a slow data source, there are now report options that help limit the number of queries that are sent to the source.
Finally, there are several new formatting features, including cell alignment for table and matrix, and precise control over the order of overlapping charts on reports.
