Is there a way of using PowerBI to visualise variables in the Matlab workspace, without having to write the data to a file or database?

You can connect Power BI to MATLAB using the new 'custom data connector' feature available from PowerBI. Please contact  for additional information.

As far as I know, you cannot access the values of variables in the MATLAB Workspace directly from PowerBI. I think that you will likely have to store these values somewhere like a file or database in order to access them.
What kind of visualization are you trying to do? There is a chance that you can create similar visualizations in MATLAB itself.

Technically yes I can replicate the visualisation in Matlab, but it will be clunky, less interactive and take longer to set up compared to PowerBI.

I'm also interested in getting data from MATLAB to Power BI.
Is there in the meantime an official documentation available?
