Re: SharePoint List Access to resource is forbidden

I've had this problem a few times and have always just done the following:

 

In Power BI desktop version, go File > Options and settings > Data source settings

 

Then, highlight the data source you are trying to connect to and select 'Clear permissions' and then select 'Delete'. 

 

It's a pain having to do this, but I find it is a reliable way to get past the dreaded 'forbidden' message. Also, if other reports used the data source connection that you just deleted, when you open the report again you may well have to authenticate again.

Re: SharePoint List Access to resource is forbidden

Dear, Thanks a million for the solution. I had selected my org's sharepoint domain name itself rather than selecting the actual path of my sharepoint workspace and  since then Power Query kept on throwing the access to resource is forbidden error.

 

and I had no idea on how to reset my source. thanks for the solution, dear.

Re: SharePoint List Access to resource is forbidden

After I change windows login password, this happened to me.

Windows login password change will update login information to Office365 Apps and Power BI desktop as well.

But it does not update login information from Power BI desktop to your sharepoint site. 

 

1. File - Options and settings - Data source settings

2. (select the data source)  Edit permissions... - Edit

3. Select Microsoft Account (because I login to sharepoint using Microsoft Account, Office365)

4. You will see your login condition just below site address. Press Sign in button just below it.

5. After sign in, save and close.

6. If you have multiple connections, you have to do it for all connections.

 

I hope this solve your problem.
