Hi guys,

does anybody has a nice graph that explains the connections from AX to PowerView opened up in SharePoint?

I haven't found one on online and do not know enough to create one by my self.

Thanks

Hi,

As far as I can work out, Power View is one part of the SSRS add-in for Sharepoint, and when used with AX it normally uses the SSAS cubes as the datasource.

But I've never seen that described with a diagram!

Sorry - graph or diagramm is the wrong word. I meant picture. The ones on bing

All right thank you. The add-in part is helpfull for understanding.

The second image here would appear to cover what you are looking for:

Also worth pointing out that the limitation described in that blog about 'Option 1' no longer applies:
