Unable to authenticate web api in the service.

I am unable to authenticate web api source.  The authentication uses Bearer authentication and I am able to get data in PBI Desktop.
Here is some sample code from power query:

Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents(StaticPathVar, [Headers=[Authorization="Bearer xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",RelativePath = "?createdAfter=" & Year & "-" & FromMonth & before & Year & "-" & ToMonth & url]])),

 

As one can see the api key is provided in the code.  But PBI Service want's to authenticate the datasource seperatly as is normal with sql data, excel data, csv files and so forth.

If one presses the edit credentials the pop window askes for authentication method.

But there is no way to authenticate the web api datasource like this in the service.

 

Are there any work around to bypass this authentication.

Re: Unable to authenticate web api in the service.

Instead of passing your parameters using RelativePath, use Query instead

 

vOptions = [RelativePath=vPath, Query=[page=Text.From(vPage), pagesize=Text.From(vPageSize)], Headers=[Accept="...-v1+json"]],

Re: Unable to authenticate web api in the service.
