Upload a local Excel file using the import API

Is it possible to Upload a local Excel file with simple tables using the import API to PowerBI?


I have found a similar solution on the developer blog that does not work with excel only with PowerBI DeskTop files (PBIX)


Is there a workaround or anyway to upload the file programatically?

Re: Upload a local Excel file using the import API

Hi to all! Ability to upload excel files was announced by Microsoft: 

I've tried to upload local excel file using this API, but unsuccessfully 😞 I had got response with import id, but new dataset, reports has not appeared in the Power BI.
Pbix files has been uploaded successfully. Did anyone try to upload Excel files with the API?
