OneLake data hub in Power BI Desktop

Introducing the centralized data hub within Power BI Desktop, now unveiled as the “OneLake data hub” under our recent Fabric release. This enhancement facilitates the discovery and efficient reuse of data resources.Within the OneLake Data Hub in Power BI Desktop, you gain the ability to not only repurpose existing Fabric components but also forge your own datasets and reports atop them. This versatile hub accommodates a range of items, including data warehouses, lakehouses, associated SQL endpoints, datamarts, and datasets (with upcoming support for KQL databases later this year).
For lakehouses and their corresponding SQL endpoints, as well as datamarts and warehouses, you have a duo of options for data retrieval:

  1. Connect to the auto-generated dataset that underlies the component.
  2. Establish a direct connection to the SQL endpoint, allowing you to create a customized dataset.

The OneLake data hub in Power BI Desktop acts as your conduit to the extensive Fabric data ecosystem, providing streamlined access and fostering enhanced data utilization.

In addition to the reintroduction of the build menu attachment option, we’ve introduced a user-friendly setting that enables users to keep the pane switcher perpetually visible. Notably, both of these innovative settings are designed to maintain consistency across your reports.

Stay tuned for further enhancements in the upcoming month, as we’re set to introduce two exciting features to the pane switcher. The first is an “add” button directly integrated into the pane switcher, allowing seamless creation of new panes without navigating to the ribbon. Furthermore, we’re introducing the ability to preserve these newly added panes across various reports, enhancing cross-report continuity.

This month’s update also encompasses a valuable addition: the capability to establish and modify conditional formatting directly from the on-object mini toolbars. This enhancement streamlines the formatting process and contributes to an optimized user experience.
