Error getting OData from Microsoft Graph: Access to the resource is forbidden



I am getting an error "Access to the resource is forbidden" when trying to access Microsoft Graph in Power BI Desktop report.

I am logging in using Organization Account.

I have Global Admin role in the tenant.


The report was working normally for months, but stopped since yesterday.

I even tried creating new one - same result.

Accessing the same URL from Graph Explorer works fine.


What could actually impact this kind of error?

I believe this is still a problem - correct?


This problem even contradicts MS's own documentation on customizing the Office 365 Adoption content pack.


You can no longer customize the reports following their instructions, recieving this very error message when attempting to load the data.

Hi I've created a step-by-step guide to deploy a custom connector that I’ve developed using the Power Query SDK. Maybe this can help you!

I found @ruiromano and @jevgenijmart had something that would work well, in a way that doesn't require someone to install Visual Studio or create a custom connector.


The guide is here - hope it helps someone else out!
