Cannot connect using Box and Power BI Desktop

I am trying to connect to an Excel file located on our corporate installation of Box.  It appears that the Excel file is just a URL.  I am using "From Web" with the URL as the data source.  And my windows credentials as the permissions.  But this is what I am seeing.


It doesn't look like I am getting signed in.  


Any ideas??

Hi @wskallmeyer 


It seems you need the JHUAPL box credentials to log in, what's the error when you click continue and input the credentials?

Within the Navigator of the Web data source is the web page with the login but it is not really an active web page.  I believe it is just the HTML for viewing purposes only.  Nothing happens when I click the button.


I have entered my credentials but I know believe there is a second factor authentication that can't be entered via Power BI.
