Hola Comunidad,

Estoy trabajando con la version gratuita de Power BI desktop, intentando conectarme una API para la descarga de un archivo JSON.

Me compartieron el siguiente codigo que me esta arrojando el siguiente error:




La consulta que ejecute fue la siguiente


token1 = "Basic " & Binary.ToText(Text.ToBinary("Demo:z5BI%OImmQ#2"), 0),
url = "",
body = "{ ""client_id"": ""****"", ""client_secret"": ""****"", ""grant_type"": ""****"", ""audience"":""****""}",

tokenResponse = Json.Document(Web.Contents(url,[Headers = [#"Content-Type"="application/json",#"Authorization"=token1], Content = Text.ToBinary(body) ] )),

BearerToken = "Bearer " & tokenResponse[access_token],

url_data = "",
File = Json.Document(Web.Contents(url_data,[Headers = [#"Content-Type"="application/json",#"Authorization"=BearerToken], Content = Text.ToBinary(body) ] )),

#"Convertido en tabla" = Record.ToTable(File) in #"Convertido en tabla"



Por favor si alguien me puede ayudar a revisar mi codigo

Hello Jing,

The ir another way to check the BearerToken?

I only have one applied step in this new query i made




Hi @felipehr 


Can you open Advanced Editor of the new query and capture a screenshot or paste its M code here after removing sensitive information? From the current code you shared, you should have several steps "token1", "url", "body"... "Convertido en tabla". We need to know what's the query like currently. 


Best regards,




Hi Jing

This is the screen shot

Thanks for your help



Hi @felipehr 


Please remove the codes I have covered with grey rectangles. For those red-underlined strings, you need to provide valid values for them. If you don't know what to provide for them, you need to ask the API provider or the person who shares this code with you for these information. These information is required by the API for authentication.

token1 = "Basic " & Binary.ToText(Text.ToBinary(), 0),
url = "",
body = "{ ""client_id"": , ""client_secret"": , ""grant_type"": , ""audience"":}",



Best regards

Hi @felipehr 


It seems the token is perhaps not valid. In Power Query Editor, there is a Query Settings pane at the right most side which has all steps listed in "APPLIED STEPS". Can you click on the "BearerToken" step or the "tokenResponse" step to check whether you get a token successfully at this step?
