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!

SSIS Denali Annotations

I have written a couple quick blogs recently sharing some of the new usability changes for SSIS in Denali.  In previous posts I wrote about Resolve References and Data Flow Grouping. 

Today I am writing about another quick tidbit.  Annotations are a feature that has been available in previous versions of SSIS.  Essentially, they are ways of leaving notes in your package about what is going on with it.  People often use annotations to type version change notes of a package or explain what steps in the package are doing.

There is no change in the creation of annotations from previous versions of SSIS to Denali.  You simply right-click on the design surface and click Add Annotation then type your note. 

The difference that you will find is that you are no longer forced to hit CTRL+ENTER to apply carriage returns in the annotation box.  You simply hit the ENTER button and it takes you to the next line!  I know this seems like a simply change but these are the little things that really annoy an SSIS developer.
