We have a problem connecting HP ALM and PowerBI with the REST API from HP ALM.
We tried different options to make it work. At first we checked if we could get data back using both Postman and directly from the web browser, that works. We used the same URL and header within PowerBI as before and we got an error back “We couldn't authenticate with the credentials provided. Please try again.”.
The following list describes the paths we tried in PowerBI:
How can we make the REST API from HP ALM work in PowerBI?
Please use web data source, then type the URL, fill Authorization header value. When prompting enter credential, please choose Anonymous. If it doesn't prompt enter credential, please go to Data source settings, find the data source, make sure it uses Anonymous.
Hello Qiuyun Yu ,
We have tried what you described in your post. The result is the same that he couldn't authenticate. Here are some screenshots of what we have done. Before the Authorization key states it's Basic. Result is the same if we remove it. In the manual is described that we use Basic Authentication to connect with HP ALM. https://admhelp.microfocus.com/alm/en/latest/api_refs/REST/webframe.htm#Overview.htm
With kinds regards,
