PowerBI C# api throwing Object not set to an instance of an Object on ExportToFileAsync and Group

Hi all,

 

I'm using the power BI C# web api Version 4.1.13 to export a report from our Power BI Tenant to a PDF.

 

I'm able to authenticate and get a bearer token successfully, but I'm running into the same error on the ExportToFileAsync and ExportToFileInGroupAsync calls, no matter what I pass it throws this error - System.NullReferenceException: 'Object reference not set to an instance of an object.'

 

Here's my code, am I missing anything obivous here? This is the first time I've used this API.

 

Thank you for any help!

 

 

 

   try
   {
       var exportRequest = new ExportReportRequest
       {
         Format = format
       };

       if(_currentAccessToken == null)
          await Authenticate();
      // The 'Client' object is an instance of the Power BI .NET SDK
      var export = await client.Reports.ExportToFileInGroupAsync(reportId, groupId, exportRequest);

         // Save the export ID, you'll need it for polling and getting the exported file
         return export.Id;
     }
     catch
     {
          throw;
     }

My problem was that I was not awaiting the full call stack, so it was sending my client to the garbage collector.
