API setup authorization bearer.

I've followed all the different insturctions to setup the API. The one thing I cannot figure out is where and how to get the authorization code/string/bearer. I'm trying to connect my dataset to Retool. The only way I can get it to work is to copy the Authorization: Bearer from example but this only works for a day and then it changes. I'm sure i'm missing something incredibly simple but i cannot figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @nroeder ,


The access token will expire after an hour. So you should use script to refresh the token.

Refresh the access token in Power BI embedded analytics | Microsoft Docs

Then use the token in the headers for the rest api.


For more details, you can refer this post
