Hi @rohith351,

Have you tested to use the file that storage in 'onedrive for business' with this API? As the document mentioned, it seems not told it allows you to use the link of other cloud storage. (they may contain the verify or authorization so that requests may not succeed processed)

Authorize access to blobs and queues using Azure Active Directory 

Imports - Post Import In Group 

Creates new content on the specified workspace from PBIX (Power BI Desktop), JSON, XLSX (Excel), RDL, or file path in OneDrive for Business.
