Hi @bsz412 ,

 

As far as I know, you can connect to Power BI data model in visual studio.

 

Head over to Visual Studio Code and paste the following code in there. Make sure that you modify the port number of the analysis services server as it will be different in your case. In order to find out the port number, you can follow any one of the techniques mentioned in this article.

 

using System;
using Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Tabular;
 
namespace powerbi_console
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Server tabularServer = new Server();
            tabularServer.Connect("localhost:57793");
 
            Model dataModel = tabularServer.Databases[0].Model;
 
            foreach (Table table in dataModel.Tables)
            {
                Console.WriteLine($"Table Name: {table.Name}");
            }
 
        }
    }
}
