Authentication Error

Hello there,


I am working at converting address information to latitude and longitude, using Bing Api trying to extract latitude and longitude information on Power Query. While I can extract information, I am facing authentication error connecting to the Api. 


  1. I created a key on Bing Dev Api Center.
  2. Used the key to parse a sample location to give latitude and longitude.
  3. Further, created a custom function with the same.
  4. Invoked the Custom Function on Location field to get lat and long.

I have tried connecting using basic, windows, anonymous authentications, but none of them are working. Can you please help ?

@Anonymous I would think you would need to use Web API. Maybe this helps: Geocoding with Bing Map API - Microsoft Power BI Community
