Streaming dataset backed by SQL Server?

Is it possible to having a Streaming dataset backed by SQL Server?  If so how would you do it?  I'm thinking the Push/API dataset is the most likely canidate, but I'd have to create a program in C# or PowerShell to poll the database for changes.  I'm not seeing anything that would do this natively.

Hi @jborn ,

 

Please refer to the blog.

"In this post, I will show you how to create a streaming dataset inside Power BI in which you can use two different datasets, namely: Streaming or Push (Hybrid)..."
"We will use SQL Server as a data source to push data to either Streaming or the Hybrid dataset using PowerShell as an intermediate layer to perform the operation of pushing the data into Power BI."
