I'm getting the following error when refreshing my query:

I'm consulting two VSTS REST APIs:

- The first one executes a VSTS Workitem Query and returns a json file with the ids of workitems that satisfy the query;

- The second, I execute to get all the data for each id of workitem retrieved from the first api call;


I used a similar procedure as described here:



All works fine in Power BI Desktop, the error is only in PowerBI.com.

The privacy option is "None" for all datasources, and I'm using Basic Authentication with a VSTS PAT (Personal Access Token). 


I think my issue is equal to this one:



This is the sample code of my model, I built some functions to let it more reusable:



But I get the error even when I try a simple sample like this https://charlesneedhamcn.wordpress.com/vsts-as-a-powerbi-datasource/.

I noticed that there was a similar issue reported to the product team before, and some engineers are still looking into it. I'll keep an eye on it and provide info to you if there is any solution for it.

Do you use on-premises gateway or personal gateway in this scenario?

No, any type of gateway. The endpoints are published to the internet through https. 


I tested the same code using a VSTS subscription instead of my on-prem TFS, and I got the same issue.

Although, for VSTS, I also tested the code using VSTS.Content instead of Web.Content, and it worked!

I'm wondering what Is the difference between VSTS.Content and WEB.Content... I noticed VSTS.Content uses OAuth to authenticate with VSTS. Is this the point?
