Solved: Refresh token api call - Microsoft Power BI Community

  • I stumbled over a similar problem as you last year. I solved my api connection by buidling a custom data connector.

    The custom Connector can be attached to the data gatway from there the api calls are made.

  • Step one: Create parameters for client_id, client_secret, oauth token, search url, username, password
    Step two: a new query with the following

Hi @MAwwad 

 

From the sounds of it what you need to do is to create a Service Principal which can then access the APIs


Here is a blog post on how to do this in the section highlighted below.
