Not able to import data from webapge with valid credentials.

Hi Team,

I have to import data by logging into a website https://www.solarweb.com  with user id and password.

When i tried to login with Anonymous, Windows, and Basic its always taking me to main page and not logging inside as how i login in browser.

Patha: Get data-->Web

Could you let me know how to access this website?

 

Thanks,

Hi All,

If its any help to anyone, it turns out I was being a massive dummy and entered the web documents URL for the address rather than the WSDL address. It's a silly mistake that's worth checking for in case it's holding you back. 

However, I can only get so far as the API I'm trying to use is a SOAP API but it appears that Power BI can only use REST APIs. If anyone knows a workaround for this, please let me know!

 

Did you get answer from your query, if yes please post answer here then it will be usefull to others

Hello PBI community

 

I also have the same issue (not being able to pull data with valid credentials using the 'basic' authentication window). The solution offered by Criptop - I don't understand, frankly - , is not applicable for this scenario, I suppose? Is there a solution to this yet?

 

Thanks

Is there any update on this topic yet? I'm facing the same problem...

Does anyone have a response to this? This is very frustrating.

In Power BI Desktop, go to
1. File -> Options and Settings -> Data source settings
2. Under Global Permissions, select the URL for which you want to update the credential
3. Click on Edit Permissions..

You can either Delete the saved credential or Edit it.

I'm having the same issue if someone has a solution please post.

 

Thanks in Advance.
