Re: Connecting to data source hosted on Dropbox

@ImkeF, No I don't have a gateway installed. Didn't understand why I'd need one to make a specific API call. 

 

I see now that people need to specifically list folder contents and not just go for a specific file, which is what I did. First I thought it was the api method that couldn't provide that list results of folder contents, but when I tried to just do a command line curl call it worked just fine, i.e. the list_folder method can return the list of folder contents (but just not in PowerBI Desktop for some reason..). I tried all types of header parameters in the web.contents method to make it work, but I didn't succeed. Either I'm doing it wrong or it's just not possible. But it would be really strange if certain API calls just don't work.
