Extremely useful connector to fetch Zendesk Support views and tickets information from Zendesk. The connector uses OAuth 2.0 to access your Zendesk's account data.

Client Id is nothing but the unique identifier.
Download the .mez file from ZendeskSupport\build folder from this repo
Rename ZendeskSupport.mez to ZendeskSupport.zip
Unzip the contents, and edit config.json in Notepad or any text editor
Replace your_client_id and your_client_secret with your apps client_id and client_secret
Save the file, and zip the contents again. Please make sure you select all content (Ctrl+A), right click and send to Compressed (zipped) folder.
Rename the zip back to .mez
Copy this to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Microsoft Power BI Desktop\Custom Connectors
Note: Create folders if they do not exist.

Restart Power BI Desktop, navigate to "Get Data" -> "More..." -> "Online Services" and you will find "Zendesk Support (Beta)), select it.
- Provide your Zendesk account full URL and follow along.
