Hi kunkumuriarjun, Since you've tried various approaches in Power BI Desktop, I wonder if there is any relevant setting from the source quantcast.

In order to reproduce this issue, I have registered a quantcast account, but could you please show me how to use it simply to reproduce this issue?

After registered a quantcast account you have to register in Quantcast Measure API (

Need to register Quantcast Measure API and you will get key and Secret. With the help of that will get URI and place in to power BI web source. There I am getting an error as " Access to the resource is forbidden"


It seems that my network is not supportedMan Sad
