Power BI Desktop - Unable to pull from OData feed using Token authentication

Hi,

 

Am newbie to Power BI.

 

We have an OData feed that supports token authentication.

i.e. requests contain a header with "Authorization Token [guid]"

 

How can I configure Power BI to be able to call ourOData feed?

Is this possible?

 

Kind Regards,

Rik

Hi @r_beacroft,

If you connect to OData feed using the following entry, and then enter your password, are you able to get desired result?

If not, add a new blank query in Power BI Desktop, then paste one of the following codes in Advanced Editor and check if you get expected result.

let 
Source = OData.Feed("URL", null, [Headers = [Authorization = "Bearer Your token" ] ])
in
Source

 

let    
Source = Web.Contents("URL", [Headers=[#" Authorization  " = "Bearer Your token"]])
in

In Power BI Desktop it works fine. But after publishing and trying to schedule automatic refresh I don't get a connection. Edit credentials

 

What exactly do I have to provide in the credentials in Power BI Service?

I tried several methods with/without "" but get "The credentials provided for the OData source are invalid"   

Status code:400

 

I used:

Authentication method

Key

 

Account key

Bearer ........

 

Privacy level setting for this data source

Organizational

 

I also tried: 

"Bearer ........."

 

What do I wrong?

I had to use "Anonymous", "Organizational" and skip connection test

Hey Bavix, I am trying to do a similar solution, maybe you did it in PowerBi Report Server Locally. Where did you set the Organizational option and skip the connection test?

Thank you

Hi kdhawan,

I was activating the automatic refreshing in PBI Service, not in Report Server.
