Data Binding Concepts

The data binding process involves setting up the data connection and associating the data with the report or a dashboard item.

Setting up the data connection involves configuring the data source connection properties and then fetching the data by use of data models or data sets based on a data source. Next, while designing a report or a dashboard, all you need to do is to connect to these existing data models or data sets or create a new one.

You need to have a complete understanding of what all types of data sources are supported and how these are configured, and a complete knowledge of data models, direct query models, cached models, datasets, and other related operations.
