Before I can pull data, I need to do the following:
Authentication is managed using HTTP one (only “Basic” is supported right now). Every request must include an authorization HTTP Header. Also, authentication uses ASP.NET authorization cookies. To get an authorization cookie, use an HTTP POST request to send ‘username’ and ‘password’ to http://website.com. Each request must include this authorization cookie: .ASPHAUTH.
How would I do this in powerbi?
Solved! Go to Solution.
According to your description, you may need to get the cookies elsewhere first(it is not possible to use Power BI to get the cookies currently), then you should be able to use Web Connector with your page URL and all your required HTTP Request Headers(including the cookies you have got) to get the data source in this scenario.
Hey @v-ljerr-msft, thanks for the response.
I am able to send an http get request using postman to the api with just a authorization HTTP header and get a response (without a cookie)
however when I try to do the same in powerquery, it says user not authorized
this is my power query:
actualUrl = "http://webpage.net/rest/v1/projects",
options = [Headers =[#"Content-type"="application/json", #"Authorization"="Basic usernamepassword(in base 64 encoding)"]],
result = Json.Document(Web.Contents(actualUrl, options))
