Extract the direct URL to view or edit a Sharepoint list item from PowerBI

I am using a Sharepoint list as my datasource and I am trying to find metadata associated to the list items that I expected to be available in my PowerBI data. I am using PowerBI to help users sort and view items from the Sharepoint List, and as part of the workflow, I want the ability for a user to click the list item URL from PowerBI, which would redirect them from PowerBI into Sharepoint. Only people who have access to the Sharepoint list have access to the PowerBI dashboard, so I don't have a concern around access. Each item in the Sharepoint list does have its own unique view URL, but I can't find that URL as metadata that Sharepoint passes to PowerBI as part of my data model. Is there a way to create this direct URL to the Sharepoint list item using power query?

Hi @mzeppieri ,

When you connect to SharePoint list in power bi, you can find the document table. Load it into power query and filter 'File' folumn, expand the 'LinkingUri' or 'LinkingUrl' to extract the URL of files in SharePoint list.
