Get Dataset table columns information

Hi,

 

It is possible with PowerBI API to get columns of a table with all the fields and data type?

 

e.g. with the GET htps://api/powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/datasets/ID/tables I get the json that looks something like this
"value":[{ "name": "product"}], but what I really  need is json that contains table name but also all the colums fiels with the corresponding data type.

 

How to make this?

Is it possible?

 

Thank you

According to the BOL: Get Datasets and my test, as of now, there's no way to get that detailed information. so far, you can only get the dataset ID and Name.

However, I've noticed there is a preview Dataset properties, which contains the metadata info as you required. So I guess it might be possible in feature API release. You can just wait or vote up this idea View model metadata (tables, relationships, columns, measures) for all models across a tenant.
