Generating AccesToken in order to use PowerBI reports API

Hi, 

 

I've read all the previouse posts regarding this topic, but it seems I'm still kinda stuck.

 

As of now I've registered my App within app registrations in AAD. I've also added a security group and added my app (service principal) as a user and a owner of the security group. 

 

 

I've added a client secret to the app registration and I'm able to query:

However when I then re-use the accesstoken generated in the response. I get 401:

These are the premissions I've granted the application in Azure:

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hi @Abrandhaug ,

According to the error message, it seems that service principal didn't have the proper permission. Did you add that service principal as the member/admin of the corresponding workspace just as describe in this official documentation

In addition, please check the following threads which have the similar problem as yours. Hope that the solution can also help you solve the problem.

Power Bi REST API - 401 Authorization error when using Service Principals

Add the Service Principal as an admin in the workspace directly rather than add the security group.

Acquired token gives 401 Unauthorized when trying to create DataSet

App registration (service principal) needs to be a member of a Security group
