In Power BI, by default any ODBC driver or some of the data sources like Salesforce you don’t get to DirectQuery them. You would have to load the data before you can start visualizing the data. In this article you will learn how you can DirectQuery any datasource with the help of Progress DataDirect ODBC drivers.
To enable DirectQuery, Microsoft provides a Data Connector SDK and using it you would have to create an extension that enables DirectQuery. But this can be tricky if you are not sure how to do this. Don’t worry, Progress DataDirect has got you covered.
In this article, let’s see how you can enable DirectQuery for Hive using Progress DataDirect Hive ODBC driver. You can use this same method for any DataDirect ODBC drivers, we will provide you with Power BI connectors that enables DirectQuery for any datasource.
Note: This extension is not production ready, please contact us for the stable version.
If your Power BI is already running, save your work and Restart Power BI for the extension to show up.
I hope this article helped you on how you can Direct Query Progress DataDirect ODBC drivers. All the Progress DataDirect ODBC drivers like Salesforce, SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Eloqua etc.., and the drivers you can build using OpenAccess SDK are fully compliant to ODBC standards, and are internally certified to work with Power BI.
