Implement "Scheduled report to FTP server" feature for Primo Analytics
We would like to request for "Scheduled report to FTP server" feature to be implemented for Primo Analytics, so we could schedule the Primo data in Power BI Reports/Dashboards to be automatically refreshed.
Power BI is the enterprise solution for data visualisation in UNSW. Currently Ex Libris does not seem to support the connection between Analytics (OBIEE) and Power BI (e.g. via Web Data Connector). Instead of manually exporting data from Primo Analytics and uploading it to Power BI, we need to find a better way to automatically update the data in Power BI Reports/Dashboard.
If we can schedule Primo Analytics reports to FTP server, we would be able to create scripts to transfer the reports from FTP server to SharePoint or other shared location, so Power BI could automatically load the latest data.
"Scheduled report to FTP server" feature for Alma Analytics is currently planned for June 2019.
