Sharepoint Folder: "Access to the resource is forbidden."

Hello

 

I add a sharepoint folder https://domain.com/sites/AWRPA0433/

 

I can access this via web but PowerBI says "Access to the resource is forbidden."

 

Any idea?

Hi @UsePowerBI , 

You could refer to my post for details. In addition, you also need to click Edit Queries->Datasoure Setting to delete your orginal credential on sharepoint, then re-connect it and make sure your credential is correct and have permission to access foler.

Hi @UsePowerBI

Hi @UsePowerBI ,

 

To connect to SharePoint folder, the specified URL should be site URL which is similar to:

https://microsoft.sharepoint.com/teams/sitename

 

If your site is Office365, please enter Microsoft Account using windows credentails.
