This post will cover how to integrate your 亿博电竞 365 for Operations instance directly with Power BI (free version).

As the current deployment model for 亿博电竞 AX is Azure-hosted, authenticating with Power BI does not need to involve any of the Power BI Gateways.  It does use a slightly different authentication method than Power BI with 亿博电竞 NAV , or Power BI with Project Madeira, but we’ll cover those steps below.

Financial Performance

Power BI



Power BI



  1. 亿博电竞 AX (AX7) instance and login with permissions to read the OData feeds
  2. Office 365 Account with Power BI (free)

Note: It is acceptable for the login for 亿博电竞 AX to be different from the login for Office 365 / Power BI.  In most live deployments these would be the same using the single sign-on feature, but it is not required.

Verify Data Entities Are Accessible

  1. In the same session, add /data/ to the base URL, the result should look like:
  2. That should open an XML feed of different data entities available in your 亿博电竞 AX instance.

In my case, IE downloaded the feed as a file and I opened it in notepad for demonstration purposes.  Note that this is not necessary other than to verify your account has appropriate permission to access the feed.
