Get Data - sharepoint folder issue

Hi pros,

I have this issue where when connecting Power BI to Sharepoint folder the error given is : "Access to the resource is forbidden"

I have full access to the sharepoint folder as I am the one who created it. I also have signed into Power BI with the correct credentials.

 

 

I've tried connecting on other computers and it does take me to the microsoft sign in authentication.

 

Does anyone know why?

 

Note: I created the sharepoint folder via Teams

I have just received this reply from Cherry... I tested it and it works (after clearing the permissions). I copy here the reply:

If it still have problem , please create a new pbix file and clear the Permission the data source of SharePoint you used before under Edit Queries>> Data source setting>>Global Permissions>> find the sharepoint source >> Clear Permissions.


Please update the latest version of Power BI Desktop ( 2.66.5376.1681) and test again. By my test with this new version, everything works as expected.
 
If it still have problem , please create a new pbix file and clear the Permission the data source of SharePoint you used before under Edit Queries>> Data source setting>>Global Permissions>> find the sharepoint source >> Clear Permissions.
 
Then you could get data again.
