In this post we are covering how the new Microsoft Flow can be used to insert data from Twitter with sentiment analysis into a Power BI streaming dataset.
Create streaming dataset in PowerBI:
Go to PowerBI.com -> Then “Streaming dataset” –> Create streaming datas
Now we will create a dataset type of API.
Name the dataset –> Then add the following values:
Sentiment values will be numbers in 0,1 (with 0 being negative and 1 positive).
Create flow to push data from twitter to PowerBI:
Go to –>flow.microsoft.com–> My Flow–>Create from blank.
Enter your flow name and title and on the screen below Click on twitter category
Then select new step–> Add an action –>search by “Sentiment” word and select “Text Analysis – Detect Sentiment”
Example: select tweet text to be your text that will be analysed with text analytics – Detect Sentiment
In the last step we are going to push the data into a PowerBI Streaming dataset.
Click on new step –>Add an action–> select PowerBI–> Then click on PowerBI – Add rows to a dataset.
Then select your workspace, dataset, and table
Then select the following:
time: created at
Tweet: Tweet Text
Then select create the flow.
Now the data is inserting directly to your streaming dataset.
Let’s see how to use that in a dashboard:
Go to PowerBI, dashboard then click on add tile.
Click on tile –> Then select “Custom Streaming Data” –> select your streaming dataset–>select your visual type ie: Line Chart –> Then add time as Axis, Tweet as Legend, and Sentiment as Values
Or you can use build direct report from your streaming data set.
Go to streaming data set–> click on create report.
