how to post import pbix file

I would publish pbix file to a workplace using Post Import API

 

I'm trying to get file from One Drive 

 

here's my request

 

 

https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/cd936ccf-03ae-4df4-xxxxx/imports?datasetDisplayName=dataAutotest

 

 

 

Then in params I followed the doc but it's not really clear, examples are using different structure than doc.

 

Here's what I added In request Body

 

 

 

{
   "connectionType":"connect",
   "pathUrl":"https://org.sharepoint.com/:u:/g/personal/subdir/pbixfilepath"
}

 

 

 I get 400 error ( without details ) 

 

I have tried multiple combinations by replacing pathUrl with filePath or connectionType "connect" to "import".


I don't know if  OneDrive is supported, if not I'll be so grateful if someone could help me to import a pbix file with another way ( azure storage ? ) But I don't really get how to set correctly the body.

 

Here's the requestid

HI @ITInge,

In fact, post import API seems not suitable with pbix file that stored in onedrive for business. I'd like to suggest you use 'onedrive for business' link of 'xlsx' files to test.

  • Importing a .pbix file from OneDrive is not supported.
