Magento 2 has reliable and robust installation process based on composer. Composer is a dependency management tool well supported by the community of PHP developers.
Since composer not only makes the installation and upgrade process easier, but also helps to ensure the compatibility of the components, it is the only supported installation option for Magento 2 Extensions.
The Magento 2 installation process consists of the following steps:
On the website settings page you may find access data for the composer repository. To open website settings, go to Account page on www.bimproject.net, menu item “My Websites” and select a website from the list. Click on “Show repository access data” to display the repository URI, repository user name and password.
Add repository access information to composer.json repositories. Open composer.json file in base folder with Magento Instance installation and add the following section to “repositories”:
Create file auth.json inside base directory of Magento Instance installation if it was not created before and add the following content to it:
Alternatively, a system wide auth.json could be used in composer home directory (~/.composer).
Depending on the purchased Power BI Integration Extension package, there will be a composer metapackage available for the installation.
The name of the metapackage could be found in the “Licensed Software Details” list on website details page (“My Websites” on www.bimproject.net -> “Details”).

Create database for DWH storage in MySQL 5.6 or MySQL 5.7.

“bim_dwh” should point to the newly created MySQL database for DWH storage.
“bim_data_export” should point to Magento database. This connection might also be pointing to a read-only replica of the main Magento database for decreasing the load on the productive Magento database. If could be just a copy of Magento database settings for the initial setup.
