Automation of exporting power bi report to a shared drive path

Hi, I have a requirement for automatically without user interaction exporting and saving a powerbi paginated report to a shafed drive path. For this, i performed all these steps,

i am using powerbi SDK in my C# consile application which is using three Api calls ExportToFileInGroup(), ExportToFileStatusInGroup(),  GetFileOfExportToFileInGroup().

I have created a service principal with Tenant.Read.All application permissions and other delegated permissions too.

I have added the service principal in a security group and enabled api authentication in power bi tenant settings.

Added service principal as a admin in workspace.

Workspace is of premium capacity.


Issue: when i am calling ExportToFileInGroup(), it is returning a Export object with status 'NotStarted' but in next line

when i am asking for ExportToFileStatusInGroup(), it is giving 'Failed' status without any runtime error. 

Please help me with this issue if you have any solution.
