    I've got the same question. Want to avoid the manual export route. Has anyone used any Rally API's to wire it as a data source for Power BI?

    Hello Mohi,

     

    I've ended up creating a query that pulled all USs for a period of time.

    Then another one for all Defects for the same period of time.

    Both brought almost all the fields.

     

    Set PowerBI to use WEB sources:

    https://rally1.rallydev.com/slm/webservice/v2.0/hierarchicalrequirement

    https://rally1.rallydev.com/slm/webservice/v2.0/defect

     

    (I used WSAPI to model basic query and get the URL that included my specific workspace, "fetch" word to pick all the fields and set up max of results)

     

    Connected using API key.

     

    Once connected, I've followed the Power BI basic steps to organize the data in both sets:

    • Converted JSON to Table
    • Expanded reference type fields to get referenced data (e.g. user, project)
    • Renamed columns and changed type in one case
    • Merged other columns

     

    Once the data was prepared,

    I've started playing with filters and visualizations.

     

    I've done this in corporate settings so unfortunately I could not show the actual data or settings.

     

    The main thing is that it was amazingly easy to get the first meaningful results. Just follow the Power BI basic tutorial.

    Hi,
    I'm currently working on something very similar, but I am running into issues connecting to the API using power query. Could you go into more detail about your process getting the JSON response (without the API key of course!)?

    Hi Zeb,

    for small query that results in less than 2K results and so can be pulled in a single page, I defined the connection details in the Data Source settings

    https://rally1.rallydev.com/slm/webservice/v2.0/defect?workspace=https://rally1.rallydev.com/slm/webservice/v2.0/workspace/777777&query=(here goes  Rally query)&fetch=true&order=ObjectID&start=1&pagesize=2000

    Put the above URL into Data source URL field,
    from 'Open file as' select JSON.

    For authentication:
    Data source settings -> Edit permissions -> Basic -> enter the API key in the Name field and leave password field blank.

    That's it.

    Hi Pranav,

    I display the user Name, but not their email. To get it you would need to follow the "Owner.ref" link and then take the EmailAddress.
    I did not need this so did not explore it further.
