Can I show image and meta data details from SharePoint online asset library in PowerBI report,

I tried to use SharePoint Folder as data connection but I got this error :

Unable to connect : SharePoint Request failed: OData Version : 3 and 4 error : the remote server returned an error : (404) Not Found

Is there any other method to get data from library , what about OData feed option ?

I appreciate your support

Thanks

Yes you can use OData feed to get a data from a library as the following

  • Open Power BI > From the above ribbon > Click on Get Data > OData Feed.
  • Set the Url to https://rootsite/_vti_bin/listdata.svc.
  • Set the credential to windows authentication , it's not worked with anonymous authontication.
  • Now it's should connected.
  • Select your library that you need to retrieve its data .
  • Click Load, now it's should be loaded properly !
