Connect to Power BI API via Python

Hi, I need to connect to Power BI API via Python. What should I do to accomplish it? I'd like to pull data from my organization work spaces. Please help me. All information that I found telling me that I have to create Azure AD, than generate token and etc.. Is it another, easier way? Thank you so much

Hi @balwats88 , 

There isn't a way around the steps you mentioned. Registering an app through Azure AD is required to access the REST API. 

To use the Power BI REST APIs, you need to register an Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) application in Azure. The Azure AD app establishes permissions for Power BI REST resources, and allows access to the Power BI REST APIs.
