There are few steps which we need to go through:

  1. Sign in to the Power BI service (https://app.powerbi.com).

  2. In the nav pane, select Apps, then Get apps.

  3. Select Apps, type GitHub in the search box > Get it now.

  4. Install this Power BI App? select Install.

  5. Your new app is ready, select Go to the app.

  6. Get started with your new app, select Connect.

  7. Enter the repository name and repository owner of the repo. The URL for this repo is https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/powerbi-docs, so Repository Owner is MicrosoftDocs, and Repository is powerbi-docs.

  8. Enter the GitHub credentials you created. Power BI might skip this step if you're already signed in to GitHub in your browser.

  9. For Authentication Method, keep oAuth2 selected > Sign In.

  10. Follow the GitHub authentication screens. Grant Power BI permission to the GitHub data.

    Now Power BI can connect with GitHub and connect to the data. The data is refreshed once a day.

  11. After Power BI imports the data, you see the contents of your new GitHub workspace.

  12. Select the arrow next to the workspace name in the nav pane. You see the workspace contains a dashboard and a report.

  13. Select More options (...) next to the dashboard name > Rename > type GitHub dashboard.

  14. Select the global navigation icon to minimize the nav pane, so you have more room.

  15. Select your GitHub dashboard.

    The GitHub dashboard contains live data, so the values you see may be different.
