Re: Dropbox API v2, as API1 has been turned off

@masplin,

I get same error as yours when enter credential for Dropbox in Power BI Service, the workaround is to republish PBIX file each time you have refresh.

Meanwhile, I would recommend you vote up the following idea that add Dropbox connector in Power BI.
https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/6663925-dropbox

In addition, do mask sensitive data such as access token before uploading your pictures and posting your replies.

Regards,
Lydia

definitely it is not an option do republish every time...

I also voted for this idea, but it is under review since 2014. Sadly, that means it is never gonna happen.

why? because end users are supposed to buy onedrive for business from Microsoft, that´s why.

Re: Dropbox API v2, as API1 has been turned off

Hi @masplin,

 

I have been trying to connect to Dropbox as well, so I have seen all your comments and different strategies, which at the end didn't work with Dropbox API v2 & Power BI Service... So sad.

 

Did you have any other update? I already voted & posted at the Dropbox "idea".

 

Plan B: Installing dropbox in our windows server and link as a local file...

Re: Dropbox API v2, as API1 has been turned off

I have a support ticket opened for more than 7 months, and nothing improves.

every month some engineer ask me to get tracer logs using fiddler, and they say they cannot replicate the issue with my original pbix that I sent to them. I refuse to close this ticket, because I know they don´t want to make it easier for onedrive rivals.

Hi all, has anyone succeeded with finding a solution to this one? I've been trying your examples without any success. Thanks
