Connection with web folder

Hi all.

 

I appreciate you can help me with the following query. I know that from Power BI Desktop you can configure a local folder as a source or data source. My question is if there is any way to connect a web folder (hosted in the cloud, Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, etc.) well sea with Power BI Desktop or from the Power BI service and that as with the option of The local folder can read all the files contained in the folder.

 

Thank you

@jmdhazard ,

To OneDrive for Business folder in Power BI Desktop, please enter the following URL in SharePoint Folder connector.

https://mydomain-my.sharepoint.com/personal/user_mydomain_com

To connect to SharePoint online folder, please enter root URL of your SharePoint site in SharePoint Folder connector of Power BI Desktop.

What if we don't want to use the SharePoint connector (too slow) but rather the One Drive connector (i.e., Web.Contents) to connect to a folder in order to combine files on input?

Hi Jmdhazard,

 

You can connect to Shareport folder (onedrive). If it's pesonal one drive replace "sites" with "personal"
