Using a REST API as a data source in Power BI Service



We have an internal REST API for analytics. When we are trying to connect it through Power BI Desktop, we can easily connect to it by dynamically generating an access token within PBI Desktop. But it seems, this is not being supported by the Power BI Service. What is the best approach to work with REST APIs in Power BI?


Thanks in advance.
