Power BI solution templates moving to open source

Headshot of article author Charles Sterling

January 1, we will be moving Power BI solution templates to open source.

This has the following implications:

  • The github repository will remain open and anyone can build solutions on the Power BI solution template code base.
  • The existing appsource entries for solution templates will be retired and links to appsource from Power BI will be removed.

One of the solution templates, Power BI Usage Metrics, is being hosted by its author, Neal Analytics, and will be available from appsource.

If you’ve implemented a Power BI solution template, this change has no impact on you.

Installed solution templates are unaffected. This only impacts you if you plan on implementing a new solution template in the future. If you want to do so, please do so this year.

We will continue to support solution templates until the end of the year. Beyond Jan 1, we’ll continue to respond to your questions  .

If you’re interested in contributing to Power BI solution templates or have any questions about this change, please contact us at
