I have an issue with connection to facebook insights. 2 weeks ago, everything was working fine. I was able to connect to all insights, but now from Power BI I can connect only to public insights.
The only thing that has changed it was a message from FB api, that my page ID migrated to another page ID.
From the Graph API Explorer I can get all the insights. From that page, If I copy access token to power query it is working. Problem is that this access_token is valid only for 2 hours what is for my case not OK.
Does anybody have any idea?
I also can no longer connect to insights. It worked last month, but when I went to refresh it this month, my source query is now broken
It doesn't look like Facebook made any chagnes since 2.6....
Did something happen on the PowerBI end? Tech team hasn't gotten back to me with an answer neither.
DataSource.Error: Facebook: Invalid parameter
I think the problem is with Power BI, because I have no trouble pulling the data from R
getInsights(object_id="Put your object id here"
,token = "Put your token here"
,metric = 'page_impressions'
,period = "day"
, parms = "&since=2016-05-01"
, version = 2.6
Yes, with token there is no problem, but there was a possibility to get insights from Facebook just by passing the metric you want to analyse. Of course, you have to be an admin of Facebook page.
problem with token is that token expires, and you have to get new token. But my customer doesn't want to check for new tokens. She just want to get insights from the page.
