Proxy settings for using PowerQuery with HDInsight


  • Hello,

    connecting to HDInsight (hosted via Windows Azure) through PowerQuery results in the following error:

    [DataSource.Error] HDInsight failed to get contents from 'https://*****'. Status code: 407, description: 'Proxy Authentication Required'.

    How to configure PowerQuery to use the default credentials for proxy authentication?

  • Hi Ujsr,

    Unfortunately proxy support is a known issue in Power Query today. You may want to try a suggested workaround posted by another user on the forum - we've heard from customers that this helps solve their issue when connecting to data sources. We are investigating this area and hope to provide support in the future.

    Please let us know if you have any other issues!
