Answered by Rafal Wilinski


Yes, Power BI can connect to DynamoDB using the Amazon Web Services (AWS) connector. The connector allows you to access data stored in DynamoDB and use it in Power BI for reporting and visualization.

To connect Power BI to DynamoDB, you will need to do the following steps:

  • Install the Amazon Web Services (AWS) connector for Power BI from the Microsoft AppSource.
  • Sign in to your AWS account and navigate to the IAM (Identity and Access Management) service.
  • Create a new IAM user with the appropriate permissions to access the DynamoDB data.
  • In Power BI Desktop, select "Get Data" and then select "Amazon Web Services."
  • Enter the access and secret keys for the IAM user created in step 3, and select the appropriate region for your DynamoDB table.
  • Select the DynamoDB table you want to connect to and import the data into Power BI.
