@c-ssrinivasan,

What kind of API do you connect to in Power BI Desktop? What authentication does the API support? There is a blog about how to connect to API in Power BI Desktop for your reference.

Hello ,

 

Thanks. here the main problem is passing slicer values to APi and retrieving the o/p. Can this be possible

@c-ssrinivasan,

Could you please elaborate about "passing slicer values to API"?

yes we need to pass Slicer Values to API.

@c-ssrinivasan,

I am not clear about your expected result, if you want to pass the slicer value of Power BI Desktop to your API source, I am afraid it is not possible.
