PowerBI APIs seem to be still having problems

Issues started with the other Power BI outage reported by others. I'm still seeing inconsistent behavior when requesting reports from workspaces via the API. The first request will work, then a second request will return a 401, and then a third request will work without me changing anything. All these requests against the same workspace. It doesn't seem to be specific to one workspace as I can repro on a variety of different workspaces.


Anyone else having similar problems with the APIs?

Hi @ClearSky


It's a known issue. Customers may see intermittent 401 errors with Power BI REST API End Points. Mitigation is in progress and expect it to be completed by end-of-day 10/1/2019.
