This section lists the steps necessary to install the OTbase Connector for Power BI:
Download the connector from the customer download portal
First you download the OTbase Connector for Power BI from the OTbase customer download portal. Note that you may only be able to see and download the connector after you have purchased a license.
Unzip the connector

Within that folder, create a folder called "Custom Connectors".
Move the .mez file to this folder.
Configure connector validation
Open Power BI Desktop and go to File > Options and Settings > Options > Security. Under "Data Extensions" select "(Not Recommended) Allow any extension to load without validation or warning" and click "OK".
Restart Power BI
In order for the change to take effect you will need to restart Power BI.
Check/install SSL certificate validation
If you want to connect to OTbase using HTTPS (recommended), you need to install an SSL certificate to your Windows machine that is hosting Power BI that will allow Windows to validate the certificate of OTbase Inventory.
