Use of external DLL libraries on Power BI



Does anyone know if we can implement external DDL library in power BI to create measure or just call or reference DDL to do some data manupulation? We have .Net/C# application that encrypts some sensitive data and stores it in database using crypto lib, now on power Bi report those encrypted data need to be decrypted on power BI reports. Was wondering if someone and any idea to arrpoach this scenario?



I don't think that you can call or implement external DDL library in Power BI. You would need to decrypt the data outside of Power BI and then import data to Power  BI.
