Facebook - connection error

Hi guys,


I connected to Facebook via Add Data, and all data was pulled correctly.


Now, when I want to refresh the report I can't seem to re-connect to facebook via Power BI desktop. I'm getting: "Access to the resource is forbidden", even if I re-log in to facebook account using my working credentials.


Help would be much appreciated !

Re: Facebook - connection error

Hey ankipatira


I was able to connect via the facebook connector. I can create a new query to facebook, no problems with pulling the data for the firs time.


However, I cannot refresh existing connection. That's the problem. 


Any ideas ?
