Is it possible to setup fully automated dashboards on the desktop version?

Hello everyone,


Soon I will start my internship where I have to setup dashboards based on python code. I have to choose whether I will use PowerBI for this matter or other visualisation softwares. Since I will be working with classified information, PowerBI desktop will be my only choice. Now to my question, is it possible to fully automate the setup of a dashboard on the desktop version? With this I mean when I enter my python source code, am I able to bring up all visuals, actions, measures based on my initial dashboard setup? Yes the datasets will contain the same information excluding the dates.


I'm sorry if this question is somewhat unclear, i'd be happy to elaborate. Thanks!

No, this is not possibe. Dashboards exist exclusively on the Power BI Service, not on the Desktop.
