A temporary alternative solution is to use postman.

Get access token first, then you can call Power BI Rest API in postman by this token.

For reference: Power BI REST API using postman - generate embed token.

I will keep an eye on this case and update if there are new developments.

And  I will mark my reply as the answer for more people to see this message.

Cool, but it't not working for me, unfortunately: The pop-up window where you can pick an account from, immediately disappears after it popped up, so no chance to pick an account. 
@RicoZhou , are you able to forward this feedback to the engineers?

Same here. The Try It button is back, but won't let you sign-in to authenticate.  How does this feedback get back to Microsoft?

Thanks for bringing back this feature.

 

Kudos to the team.

 

Thanks,

Rahul

It's back but doesn't work.

I do see the try it button enabled now. Can you all try below link? Or go to your specific API.

If still cofused or facing issue.

Please follow below video to extract token using Powershell.

Note - if you're using powershell for the first time, U will need to install Powerbi Module by running below command in Powershell as adminstrator.

Install-Module -Name MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt

Another apparently unnecessary productivity killer. I was always using this UI for exploratory testing before implementing anything, now I have to go through the hassle of using 3rd tools and obtaining tokens.

Same issue here. Hope it gets fixed soon.

It disappeared for me too. I was relying on this "Try" feature to fetch my Auth Token so that my script can fetch API records. Does anyone know of an alternate way to fetch this Auth Token??

Hi @mwade_cte1926 ,

 

I'm so sorry for your bad experience. I have checked the offical documents about Power BI REST API, "Try it" has been indeed removed. As far as I know, "Try it" has been disabled by the Documentation Team. Currently, there is no ETA about this yet. I will keep an eye on this case and update if there are new developments. I will mark my reply as the answer for more people to see this message.

That is a shame! Please send any links or reference for this announcement.

There is an open issue-thread here that might be worth voting up as well: Power BI REST API Sandbox is gone ! - Microsoft Power BI Community

Thanks for the response, even though it's quite a shame.  The "Try It" feature was a very useful feature that I used quite frequently weekly.  Is this something that we can vote to get back?

Thanks @RicoZhou , the article works.
For other users reading the article that Rico referenced, please note:
1) You will likely need to create the App registration FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION (i.e. User Owns Data option)

2) Make sure to record the Application Secret which is displayed on your screen after the app is registered

3) When granting permissions in the Azure Portal, be sure to check "Grant Permissions for [Your Organization Name]"
