Is it possible to push data into Microsoft PowerBI from Azure SQL Database using C#
I'm working on creating a dashboard with 2 other colleagues. One of the colleagues has uploaded the data into Azure SQL Database. Essentially, I would like to use C# as a programming language and connect to the server and push the data into Power BI. Can this be achieved?
Certainly you can use C# to push data into Power BI. See the client app sample at http://dev.powerbi.com
But my suggestion is rather than you pushing data into Power BI, consider letting Power BI query Azure SQL Database live. It's called Direct Connect: https://support.powerbi.com/knowledgebase/articles/581421-azure-sql-database-with-direct-connect
(Thorarins posted this link above first in fairness.)
I agree with the rest of the replies that involving C# might complicate your solution. That said, have you tried the rest API for PowerBI? This will allow you to push data in real-time into your reports without the refresh constraints.
