Creating a Power BI Streaming Dataset

Rob Farley takes us through the process of creating and using a Power BI streaming dataset:

Real-time Power BI sets are a really useful feature, and there’s a good description of them at I thought I’d do a quick walkthrough specifically around the Push side, and show you – including the odd gotcha that you might not have noticed.

To create a dataset that you want to push data into, you need to go to the Power BI service, go to your Workspace, and create a Streaming dataset. Even if you’re not wanting to use it with a streaming service, this is the one you need.

Rob has plenty of animated GIFs to walk you through the process, as well as a couple of caveats if you want to play along at home.
