Semantic Link: OneLake integrated Semantic Models
Semantic Link adds support for the recently released OneLake integrated semantic models! You can now directly access data using your semantic model’s name via OneLake using the
read_table function and the new
mode parameter set to
onelake. This approach ensures that no load is placed on Analysis Services, enabling efficient data retrieval and avoids putting additional load on your Power BI capacity.
When using the
onelake mode, the data is read directly from the delta tables in OneLake, which are kept up to date with the semantic model. This enables seamless access to the data for various data consumers without the need for additional ETL pipelines or data copying. Here’s a code snippet using the
read_table function with
onelake mode to read the customer table in the Adventure Works semantic model:
Programmatic export of data can be triggered using the new
execute_tmsl function. This Python function allows you to run Tabular Model Scripting Language (TMSL) commands to export the data from your semantic model. Please note that XMLA read/write needs to be enabled for the semantic model.
Here’s a code snippet for triggering the programmatic export using the
