Web Connection with Credentials

Hello guys,

I´m trying to connect to a web page with credentials, the only thing is that to access the web page I need 3 values, and Power BI Desktop (Get data from a Web) only gives you two values.

How can I connect Power BI Desktop to this web page using the three values?


Thanks for your help!

Hello @Yeriel. We have a couple of related threads with some recommendations from other Power BI users which could help. Here’s the link where you can go to view it - Best Practice in getting data from an Excel file sourced in Sharepoint and refresh it from the PBI Service and Error Connecting to Excel file in OneDrive. Hope this helps.

I had the same situation once:
Go to Edit queries->data source setting , clear or edit this data source credential, select Basic from the window and type your username and password.

Then select the Extract table using examples : it will present an interactive window where you can preview the content of the Web page, and enter sample values of the data you would like to extract.

Try to create a new account in the website, if you don’t want to paste this url in the box :
(Get data->Web(Basic)) , then select Anonymous .
