Reports into Power BI via API?



Hi all, I hope you can help.

We currently are in the process of creatinga dashboard in PowerBI, ultimately we want to display one live chart for critical servers sensors and a seperate chart to show uptime for critical servers daily, this month, last month, and year to date.

We have been able to create a live chart for the critical servers by using the API . However, using the API to call on many sensors for a specific range seems to drag the system to a hault.

Is there an easy way to esentially export our current reports via API directly into PowerBI? Or would it be easier to save the specific date reports to a CSV and then import that way?

Many thanks

Note: The SLA Plugin from Corp IT has been deprecated. If you would like to explore enhanced SLA reporting options, check out the PRTG SLA Reporter, a PRTG extension. A free trial is available from the Paessler website.

The PRTG SLA Plugin by CORP-IT (one of our partners) allows you to put the historic data into a MSSQL, allowing you to integrate it into your PowerBI environment :)

Other than that, you could also use PRTGapi to export the data via a scheduled task. Note that historic data is limited to five queries per minute for performance reasons.
