Solved: Using a REST API as a data source


01:03 PM

@Eric_Zhang i was looking at using a 3rd party api provider as a data source which is not one of your native PBI connectors (or online Service SaaS connectors as you cal them) so i followed this post with interest.

Obviosuly just a simple api call using http is the answer. Thanks.

I was just reading the API deveoloper doc of the provider and it states

“All access to the API occurs over an TLS-encrypted secure channel, so your API client must support TLS. To ensure data privacy, unencrypted HTTP is not supported.”

Does the PBI client satisfy TLS ?

Thnaks for your timely feedback.
