If you have any questions about BrightMove Analytics that haven't been answered elsewhere, you've come to the right place!
What is the BrightMove Analytics OData feed URL?
How often is the BrightMove Analytics data refreshed from the On-Demand data?
At this time, data is loaded from the on-demand BrightMove ATS database into the BrightMove analytics database once per day. This process starts at 7:00 AM EST.
If you refresh your data in Power BI Desktop each day, do so after 8:00 AM EST to get all of your latest data from the previous day.
There is a Refresh Dataset option in Power BI Cloud, can I schedule a refresh from there?
The dataset refresh in Power BI Cloud currently has a bug (as of 11/06/2015) when refreshing online OData sources. We have a bug report on file with Microsoft, and will update the users and this document once they have resolved this bug.
Once the bug is resolved by Microsoft, you can schedule your daily refresh in Power BI Cloud, and at that point there will be no need to refresh from Power BI Desktop and then Publish to the Cloud.
Do you support cross-company reports for RPO?
Currently, datasets only include the company data for the primary company of the authenticated user. We plan to roll-out full RPO support by December 1, 2015.
Is Microsoft Power BI Free?
Yes and no.
Power BI Desktop is free.
Power BI Cloud is free for up to 1GB of data storage.
If your company has a large amount of data (> 1GB), you will need to upgrade to Power BI Professional, which allows up to 10GB of data storage. As of 11/6/2015, the price for Power BI Professional is $10 per user, per month.
Do I have to use Power BI for Analytics?
No. We recommend Power BI because of the cost effectiveness and ease of use. However, with your BrightMove Analytics user license, you are paying for access to the OData feed of your BrightMove data.
You can consume this data feed with any tool that you would like to use. If you have in-house tools that you would like to use, feel free to use them with our OData feed. Our OData service uses Basic authentication with your BrightMove username and password.
Do you support Power BI and offer training on Power BI?
We chose Power BI because it is a well supported and intuitive product. Please use the Power BI Support documentation. If you are a Power BI Professional subscriber, you should also be able to open support tickets with Microsoft for any assistance you may need.
I cannot connect to your OData Service, who do I contact for support?
BrightMove supports our OData service just like all the other aspects of our software suite. Please email email@example.com to create a ticket and one of our support specialists will help you in troubleshooting connectivity to the OData Service.
BrightMove Analytics sounds great. How do I get licensed to use it?
We are happy to get you setup and using BrightMove Analytics to help get the most out of your BrightMove experience.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to add licensing for our OData feed.
How do you charge for the BrightMove Analytics OData feed?
Currently, we license access per named user.
In the future, we will be switching to a consumption model, where the charges will vary based on the amount of data transferred.
Anyone who signs up with the per user licensing model will be grandfathered into that pricing model, but will have the option to change to the consumption model once it is available.
