OASIS O4 utilizes JSON to allow data to be transferred from the OASIS database into other applications, such as Power BI. JSON removes the complexity of the OASIS databases, allowing data in OASIS UI to be directly transferred into other applications. To complete this process, you will need an OASIS O4 URL with a query string to transfer any required data.
We will provide a test URL that will pull all orders from the last year with the ManufacturerID, Entry Date, Total Price, and Total Earnings.

OASIS Support and JSON
Unfortunately, we are not staffed to provide support on tools like Power BI. We are able to help develop OASIS JSON query strings and other complex JSON requests, and to explain how data is transferred from OASIS. However, once we deliver the data into the system of your choice, we can no longer provide support.
