Power BI Publish to Web for Anonymous Access is Here

Earlier this week on Wednesday the Microsoft Power BI made an incredibly exciting announcement and released Power BI “publish to web” as a preview feature. This is HUUUUGE news! This was probably the top requested feature and its finally here thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Microsoft Power BI team!

Power BI “publish to web” allows you to easily expose a Power BI report to the world through an iframe that can be embedded wherever you like.

To publish your Power BI report to the web, log into your Power BI site.

Find the report that you want to share and click File in the top left.

You’ll see a message pop up box similar to below. Click the yellow button to create the embed code.

This is where you’ll see a very important warning!
WARNING: Reports that you expose through the “publish to web” feature will be visible to everyone on the internet! This means NO AUTHENTICATION is required to view the report that is embedded in your application.

Once you do that, you’ll receive an embed code that you can then use to expose your Power BI report within your blog as seen below!

As you can see the report maintains all the interactivity features of Power BI. And as your Power BI report updates and changes, those changes will be reflected in your embedded Power BI reports!

Pretty awesome!

Hello all,

 With the course of time, you might need to backup all the databases within a server instance automatically and schedule to backup these database monthly wise or according to your specific time set. 

Also, what I want to say is that ,I cannot stop myself to write this another blog of mine.

writing a blog and sharing some knowledge through the blog makes us really feels happy and also somewhat we also become addicted to it. :)

This may be simply for one but for someone it will be helpful for those who don't know how to do it.
 May be there are a lot of alternative methods to perform this task and many solution's.

 But I have researched a lot regarding to backup all the SQL database as well the SSAS catalogs database backup with in a particular server instance.

 Here ,I am going to show how to obtain the SQL database backup automatically along with schedule time set.

Firstly, I have created a SSIS package where I used simply “Back up Database Task “ from toolbox and click right then clicking in edit tab, we  can set the connection as show in figure1 below:


Then we can set the Backup Type as full or other type after that you can select the databases to backup as show in figure2 below where we can set required databases to backup.


After that you can set the other different properties like

1.Backup set Expire

2.Bakup to

3.Append or overwrite if backup exist

4.for everyday backup options

5.Backup location directory currently I set to default location.

6.allow compression or not.

You can figure out by looking the figure3 below.


Now all you need to create a job agent to schedule the backup task and run SSIS package. In order to do this you can check out the link by Brian Knight as

http://www.sqlshare.com/running-and-scheduling-ssis-packages_53.aspx

 or simply go to SSMS and start Sql Server Agent and right click and create new job where you have to setup some properties as shown in figure4

Here you can schedule  the backup going into the schedule tab and then just check the job working or not by right clicking it and Start job  at step then you can check the all the backup database within the default location as : C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Backup

 Hope you get  some ideas to obtain the schedule Sql databases backup automatically ,also I am thinking to post into my another blog for “ Automate and schedule all SSAS catalogs database backup with in a server instance by using Job Agent” or similar approach which have taken most of my research time and I am happy to obtain the result successfully.

 Hope, this may be simple but I think it may work out for someone .

 Thanks,

Anil Maharjan
