Working with API's

My organization uses many different sources for analyzing sales data, lead performance, human resources, and others. Many of our systems do not have a native Power Bi connector, so we are looking to know more about connecting data to Power Bi using API. I want to learn more about this topic and get some training. I cannot find anything on EDNA, so I was hoping our forum experts can tell me some of your favorite places to get this training.

@jmolina it will depend which software you are using. If your software support api (odata) it will be connect power bi. For example i am using microsoft dynamic nav i have created api so these api will be connectors for power bi. Always created credentials also for the api access. Just created api and connect with odata in power bi. I hope this will help you.
