Power BI data moved from local data source (One Drive) to Shared Drive

Hi there,


I have developed a tool which linked the data source (imported by folder and import by excel) with local drive. After testing, everything looks good and I plan to launch across internal team. However, when I try to link the data source from local drive to shared drive. It fails to load the data. I did try different permision (None, Public, Organizational and Private) in Option and setting > Data Source Setting. All fail to load the data. 


It will be appreciated any advice. Thank you.

Hi @kenchan,

The shared network driver should different with local driver except you use the public link that can be viewed as 'anonymous' without any other authorizations and redirections or these additional authorization or redirection will affect the power bi requests when getting and refreshing data.
