Help with Python and requests and session

Hi 

I am curious to know if it is possible to get PowerBI to pull down a json file using python requests library with sessions. We need to use sessions as the python code authenticates and then re-uses the session to download the file.

Any ideas?
TIA

Hi @rumble,

Where are you used these python scripts? Work within data source or python visual? If you mean data source side and these session operations are integrated in the same query step, it is possible.

If you are working with python visual, these types of operations will been blocked on power bi service side due to security reasons.

For the python script hosted in different query steps, I don't think you can directly transmit data between these steps that invoked python scripts.
