Get data stored in sftp server location

I am trying to get data from a file which is stored in my sftp folder as a csv file. This file refreshes everyday.
I have the server ip and path.

I tried to get data from web by choosing sftp://<ip_address>/<file path>/<file_name>.csv, but it doesnt recognize the sftp.
How do I get data from my server?

Re: Get data stored in sftp server location

Hi @purnima13,


Based on my research, the web data source doesn't support SFTP schema, while FTP is supported. You can try to store fire in FTP server and get data via web data source. See: How to use Excel or csv file from FTP location as data source in Power BI.


For your requirement, you can vote on this same idea:
