Metadata from SharePoint document library

Hello,

 

How can we show the metadata associated with the files uploaded in a SharePoint document library in a Power BI report. While connecting to the Doc library from Power BI none of these fiels - including Author and Editor is available in the Power BI. How can we pull these information to report?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Sreeja

Hi @sreejavg

 

You can use OData feed connector in Power BI desktop then type below URL , choose Documents table:

https://<yoursharepointsite>/_vti_bin/listdata.svc

In Query Editor, you can expand CreatedBy and Modified By columns to see author and editor information.
