can't see salesforce survey objects

We are using the Salesforce Survey tool, It creates standard salesforce objects. These are viewable in the dataloader app from salesforce, as will as various 3rd party tools. Usually you can see all the standard objects in salesforce in the get data, but in powerbi you can't (you also can't in excel or access) I want to stress because it has come up before in questions, these are not custom objects, these are standard salesforce object, they are:

Survey Email Branding
Survey Invitation
Survey Question
Survey Question Choice
Survey Question Response
Survey Response
Survey Version


has anyone else run across this problem, is powerbi just not upto date?

Re: can't see salesforce survey objects


The salesforce object connector in Power BI Desktop uses salesforce rest api to integrate data with salesforce. However, based on my research, salesforce rest api doesn't provide access to survey objects, but SOAP API provides access.

Are you able to use salesforce REST explorer  to access the survey object?
