@pankajsynerzip 

Go to "Get Data" and search for Salesforce. You will see options for Salesforce objects and Salesforce reports.

Ask your salesforce admin to provide access to required salesforce objects to your ID.

Yes I have used salesforce object connector.

I am able to fetch data using salesforce object connector.

However, I dont want to load all the data using object connector and then filter it.

I am looking for, filter data first using salesforce api and then load data in power bi.

@pankajsynerzip you can also use SF Report connector to get data from report and filter data in the report. Do you think that will work?
