Power BI Requirements and Setup

Connection to EQuIS in Power BI Desktop is through an EQuIS 7 Enterprise site, Build 19300 or later. The EQuIS 7 Enterprise site must also have a REST API License applied. EQuIS users must be assigned to both the Enterprise role and the REST API role for any authentication mechanism to succeed. EQuIS Professional does not need to be installed on the user's computer.

 

To access the EQuIS Data Connector in Power BI, the connector file (EQuIS.pqx) needs to be available. Save the EQuIS.pqx file downloaded from the EarthSoft Community Center (ECC) to your {Documents}\Power BI Desktop\Custom Connectors folder. (If this folder does not exist, create it manually).
