Power BI reports into NAV 2016

  • 1.  Power BI reports into NAV 2016

    Posted Aug 16, 2019 07:33 AM
    Hello,

    I have created reports in Power BI desktop based on NAV 2016. Now would like to access these reports and dashboards  from NAV 2016 itself. How can we achieve this?

    Appreciate your inputs.

    Best Regards

    While I have not tried it, I would think that you could use the WebPageViewer add-in from NAV 2017 and bring it down to NAV 2016. Then you would have to implement a page that uses the WebPageViewer control and displays the reports. The best way to do all of this would probably be to port everything down from a newer version of NAV, but for a simple solution to only provide this for one specific implementation, you can probably take the proper shortcuts.

    Another way would be to just provide somewhere an action with a hyperlink to the actual dashboard in Power BI - that would be a lot simpler, but it wouldn't be the same "embedded" experience.
