Vena's Power Automate connector allows you to connect with external source systems that are not currently available through Vena's traditional integration methods, and may be used to import data on an ongoing basis. For example, when a new file is added to Dropbox, an automated workflow can instantly bring a copy of the file into the Vena cube. Vena's connector lets you execute an ETL job to import data from a file into the cube, or to export hierarchies, attributes, values, or LIDs from a model to a file.

Prerequisites

You will need a vena.io account with Admin permissions, and if Data Permissions are set up for your environment, you will also need the appropriate permissions for the data that you are working with.

How to get credentials?

  • Log into vena.io as an Admin user
  • Navigate to the Admin tab
  • Navigate to the 'Application Tokens' tab under Admin
  • Select 'Add Application Token'
  • Enter a name for the new Application Token and click 'Save'
  • Once the token is created, it will be added to the Application Token list. Click on the newly created token and select 'Show Token''
  • This will display your newly created application token credentials.
  • Use 'apiUser' as the username, and 'apiKey' as the password in the Microsoft Power Automate Connector.
