Possible to automate extraction of a power bi report/visualization with Power Automate in Sharepoint

Hi, i want to extract a matrix visual every morning at 07:30. I want to do this with power automate. The extraction must be done into an csv file and i want the csv file to be dumped in a specific sharepoint. Is this possible?

yes, it is possible.

wherein you can use the power BI REST API to extract the data and upload in sharepoint.

 

The below blog provides a similar aspect :

wherein ˆthe logic app framework is equivalent to the power automate one

Yes, you could do this with the "Query a Power BI dataset" in Power Automate. There's a "create csv" action, you'd use that in conjunction with the "create file" action on the rows returned by querying the dataset. You can copy the DAX your matrix is using with the performance analyzer tool and use that for the query to return the same data. 

 

Keep in mind though that a CSV is definitionally flat, where a matrix is pivoted, so it's not going to resemble the matrix like you'd get with Power Pivot etc.
