Not able to connect Power BI Desktop with Dropbox RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an excel spreadsheet in Dropbox that I would like to load in the Power Bi Desktop. I am not able to connect Power BI Desktop with Dropbox.

    This is what I did-

    I created an app in Dropbox and then generated an app token that has access to all the folders in Dropbox.

    Then I used the Web Connector in the Power BI Desktop with the v2 API URL

    URL: https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/download

    HTTP Header

    Authorization : Bearer api_token

    Dropbox-API-Arg : {\"path\": \"/folder/file.xslx\"}"

    Once I click on Ok, I get a 400 Error that says "Web.Contents failed to get contents from 'https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/download' (400): Bad Request"

    Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
