Streaming DataSet question

Hello, 

 

I'm studying how to connect an IoT Sensor to power bi, and I need to know :

 

do we always need to do something else outside power be to get it done? For example, we need to write a python script, or a power shell script , and get it running somewhere to work with a streaming data set?

 

Does exist the possibility to call an API rest inside Power BI? 

 

Thanks,

 

Verónica.

SB: All types (push, streaming) require you to build the mechanism outside of Power BI. Power BI is just the reciever and handles things in different ways depending on what you want to do.

Does exist the possibility to call an API rest inside Power BI? 

SB: No. Not to my knowledge with streaming. Building a custom connector to schedule refresh would allow you to do this I believe, but then we aren't talking streaming.

@Anonymous This documentation here -> https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-real-time-streaming is pretty comprehensive. Have you seen it? It talks about the difference between streaming and push datasets and what options you have.
