Connect with Power BI

You can create interactive dashboards and analysis reports from your SingleStore Cloud workspace's data in Power BI.

Prerequisites

Before connecting Power BI to SingleStore Cloud, perform the following tasks.

  1. Download and install the latest version of Power BI Desktop.

    Note

    The SingleStore Direct Query connector only supports 64-bit versions of Power BI.

  2. Download and install the latest version of The SingleStore ODBC Driver.

If you are using an older version of Power BI and the connector, see Upgrade the SingleStore Direct Query Connector.

Upgrade the SingleStore Direct Query Connector

Note

You may need to update the Power BI reports after upgrading the connector.

The SingleStore Direct Query connector is included in the latest version of Power BI. To upgrade the connector to the latest version:

  1. If you are using the SingleStore Power BI Bundle, uninstall it. Ensure that the connector files are deleted from the machine. By default, the connector files are located in the %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Power BI Desktop\Custom Connectors folder.

  2. Download and install the latest version of The SingleStore ODBC Driver on the machines with Power BI Desktop and gateway.

    Note

    If the same machine is running Power BI Desktop and acting as the gateway, download and install the SingleStore ODBC driver on this machine.

  3. Update Power BI Desktop to version 2.106.883.0 or later.
