REST API Request

Before I upgraded to the newest version of power bi, September 2019 version, I have been able to pull data down from our companies third party program via a REST API where I post a json object to the url and the url gives back a json object which I can convert to a table in power bi. I used to authenticate my request with an API token given in the header of the request as the paramater #"Authorization" = "Bearer someapitoken". Now Power BI keeps asking me to edit my credentials instead of passing through the API token. When I try specifying it as a WEB Api in advanced options its spits back that the token has characters in it that aren't allowed. Luckily I had the installer for the previous version of Power BI still downloaded so I was able to revert it, but I feel like this might be a bug.

Re: REST API Request

Hi rossData,

Did you mean that when you type authorization in web connector, it still jump to  credential page in new version desktop, but it won't jump in older version, right?

I think you need to check whether the permission has existed in older version, you could click Edit Queries->DataSource Settings->clear the permission of web, then re-connect to this web by passing Authorization in Advanced option to see whether it will jump to credential page in older version.
