has anyone actually created a power BI dashboard from the orion DB. if so would you share how you did it and what tables did you use
It was asked in the wrong area and should have been posted in The Orion Platform Forum, which is why no community members answered if they had any luck.
There is no "official" support, but I've heard that people have either a) connected PowerBI directly to the Orion Database (but this means you need to know all of the relationships within the database) or b) have connected it via the REST API Endpoint. Myself, I haven't tried either.
