Custom data connectors allow you to extend Power BI so that it can connect to new data sources. But how can you build them? Don't miss this month's Power BI User Group to learn more!
In this session you'll learn how you can build custom data connectors by writing M code using the Power Query SDK in Visual Studio, and also how they can be tested and deployed. You will also see examples of how to implement common patterns such as connecting to web services and handling different forms of authentication such as OAuth2.
