Hi Ruslan,

I am new to API Connection with Power BI. Here is the Documentation Link - http://www.datamedia.org//. I have an API Key but I don't know how to generate Session Key and how to request Data.

Re: Connecting Power BI with API

Hi @Sowmiya,

 

Please try below approach:

 

1. Go to Get Data -> From Web and enter https://server/GetSessionToken (replace server with actual server name). Press OK.

api 1.JPGapi 1

 

2.  You will see a window with authorization types, choose Web API

3.  Enter your API Key into the text field and select full HTTP request from a dropdown list like below:

 

api 2.JPGapi 2

4. Press Connect.

 

P.S. If you will have errors you can post them here as well.

 

Regards,
Ruslan
