User Interface

Bravo has a user interface based on a single window that allows multiple connections.

Here is a brief tour of all features:

  1. Creates a connection to a model in Power BI, or loads a VertiPaq Analyzer file.
  2. Opens a new connection
  3. Operations available on the selected connection. They are all disabled where there are no open connections. Each operation is applied to the tab that is currently active.
  4. Collapses or expands the operations pane.
  5. Opens documentation and help videos.
  6. Opens the Alert pane showing important messages like new updates available.
  7. Opens the Options dialog box to specify all the settings for Bravo.
  8. Theme selection
    Switches between light theme, dark theme, or automatic. The default setting is automatic, which chooses between light mode and dark mode based on Windows settings.
  9. Login/logout
    Login to the Power BI service, required to connect Bravo to a dataset published on Power BI service. The first time, Bravo may request the username to locate the right endpoint for the authentication. During the sign in, a browser window appears to complete the login process. Login is not required to access local files. Bravo remembers log in credentials on following runs, just like Power BI Desktop does: use the same button to explicitly Logout.

Other two common elements of the user interface appear in all the operation pages.

  1. Synchronize
    Synchronizes the information in Bravo with the information in Power BI Desktop. For example, if you add a measure or import a new table, you can update the information in Bravo by clicking the “Synchronize” button.
  2. Help
    Opens page in a browser window pointing to the documentation.
