Hi @Shawnm 

 

You can refer below link for Power Bi connector, @JaredDolich  has explained step by step very nicely. I am sure below link helps you a lot and it's good to start to explore Power BI connector.

Hi @Shawnm 

@Akhtar.shahbaz is correct. You can follow the instructions on the link he provide OR you can use the fancy new native connecter which was just released.

Re: Power BI connection using basic authentication

Thank you for your reply. I'm sorry but I got one more doubt, is it also possible to export data back from Power BI to Anaplan using this connector? I tried the new Anaplan connector( beta) and was able to run an export from Anaplan to Power BI, I'm just wondering if the opposite is possible too.

The short answer is not yet. The Power BI connector is one-way for now. Depending on what you're trying to do, you might also look at the Anaplan Excel Add-In as an alternative to Power BI. From Excel you can send data back with the connector. It's amazing.
