Exporting a PowerBI report without downloading it and reading it in Databricks automatically.

Hi everyone!

              I want to somehow read a PowerBI report in my databricks workspace as a dataframe. I know that there are ways to read data in PowerBI by reading the data present in the Databricks catalogue for a workspace but I am trying ton find a way to do the opposite of it, i.e, read a PowerBI report in Databricks. Are ther any kind of API's in which I can connect to a report and read the data in a PowerBI report in datrabricks?

HI @akash_venkatesa,

For export power bi report, you can try to use export api:

Reports - Export To File In Group - REST API (Power BI Power BI REST APIs) | Microsoft Learn

I'm not so clear for your description, did you mean to import power bi report data to databricks?
AFAIK, current power bi service seems not relates these to rest API. Perhaps you can try to turn the XMLA endpoint feature, then you can use this to getting data from power bi dataset.

Hi @v-shex-msft!
In simple terms I want to read the data present in a PowerBI report as a spark dataframe in a databricks workspace. So I was wondering if there was an API/method in which I can read the PowerBI report in databricks as a dataframe.
