Has anyone built a custom symbol to place a PowerBI display in a Vision screen, with typical functionality enabled (like changing filters and drilling down in charts)? I don't know if it would be a simple iFrame or something harder.
I took a quick look through our github and other internal projects and can't seem to find anyone who's made a customer symbol linked to PowerBI. I see Microsoft does have an open API for them, but I'm sure this would be a fair amount of work to get off the ground. I tried just using an iframe myself and ended up getting denied access because our PowerBI displays don't allow for iframes, so that might be something you run into as well...
Attacking this from another angle, if you end goal just to view PI Data in PowerBI? Would perhaps the Power BI integrator be an OK fit for what you need?
Hey Robert, thanks for investigating. We're actually already using the Azure integrator to send data to Azure and then displaying it in PowerBI. We were just hoping to "port" those charts and tables in Vision so people could see everything in one spot. We do have a pretty strong software development group in our company, I'll send them the API link and see if they can make some magic happen?
We have some PI Vision 3 samples you / your developers may find useful e.g. Marcos custom symbol integrating Google maps or embedWebPage.
Interesting question. Curious what the outcome will be and how well that integrates into PI Vision, especially from the user Point-of-view. Keep us up to date!
