# Releases

This article documents the ongoing improvements we're making to the Cognite Power BI connector.

# December, 2020

# From Beta to Version 1

The Cognite Power BI connector moves from Beta to Version 1. The new version is backward-compatible, and you can update the connector without having to migrate your dashboards. If you have manually installed a previous version of the plugin, remove it by deleting it from Documents\Power BI Desktop\Custom Connectors.

# Improved support for time series data

The Cognite Power BI connector V1 comes with improved processing time for time series data and removes the limitations on the number of time series you can download. For example, you can download thousands of time series, each with data from 1 year and with 1 day granularity.

# New function: Time series aggregates

The time series aggregation now accepts a list of IDs instead of a comma separated string. You can now use a column from another query directly as input to the function, making it much easier to use.

# Setting the CDF environment for a custom cluster

If a CDF project is on a custom cluster, you can set the CDF Environment to the URL of the API server for the cluster when you connect to CDF.

You can also set a specific API version by appending it to the URL, for example v1. We also support shorthand notations. For example, api/v1 uses the default API endpoint and v1 of the API.

Examples of supported CDF environment values:

  • (blank) - uses the default setting (https://api.cognitedata.com)
  • api - the same as https://api.cognitedata.com
  • api/v1 - the same as https://api.cognitedata.com/v1
  • https://api.cognitedata.com
  • https://api.cognitedata.com/v1
  • xyz - a custom cluster. The same as https://xyz.cognitedata.com
  • xyz/v1
  • https://xyz.cognitedata.com
  • https://xyz.cognitedata.com/v1
