Data Tree R Code working in Rstudio but not in PowerBI..Please help

hello all,

 

I am trying to create a R visual in powerbi.

 

R code which is working fine in Rstudio is

 

 

Data <- read_excel(path = "D:\\Book1.xlsx",sheet = "Sheet4")

Data$pathString <- paste("name", 
                         Data$Level1, 
                         Data$Level2, 
                         Data$Level3,
                         Data$Level4,
                         Data$Level5,
                         Data$Level6,
                         sep = "/")


library(data.tree)
Network <- as.Node(Data)

plot(Network)

 

and it is giving me output a visual as below image

 

Capture.PNG

 

But when i try the same code in powerbi it is not working.

Capture1.PNG

 

Capture2.PNG

 

 

But when i clicked EDIT IN EXTERNEL R IDE it worked perfectly.

 

This is for the first time that im trying to create R visuals in powerbi.

 

Can anyone please suggest me about this.

I got it to work.  Here's an example of how to get it to render:

library(DiagrammeR)
library(DiagrammeRsvg)
library(magrittr)
library(svglite)
library(rsvg)
library(png)
library(data.tree)

Type <- c('Car','Car','Car','Car')
Manufacturer <- c('Chevrolet', 'Chevrolet', 'Honda', 'Toyota')
Model <- c('Impala', 'Silverado', 'CR-V', 'Camery')
          
dataset<- data.frame(Type, Manufacturer, Model, stringsAsFactors=FALSE)

dataset$pathString <- paste(dataset$Type, dataset$Manufacturer, dataset$Model,sep = "/")
tree <- as.Node(dataset)

export_svg(plot(tree))%>%charToRaw %>% rsvg %>% png::writePNG('001.png')

 

 

The last part is how you export it manually to a .png, which power BI seems to be looking for.

Hi, thanks to the workaround provided.

We use it and managed partialy to resolve the visualization problem.

 

However, once report is published into Power BI Service it throws an error that not all libraries used in a visual are supported.

Have you faced the same problem?

Any ideas how it can be resolved?

 

Thanks!

I am having the exact same problem.  Downloaded and installed the older version (0.7.0) of data.tree. Still does not work.  Works fine in R studio.

 

This would be extremely helpful in a project I'm working on, but I'm about ready to give up...
