  • Power Query doesn't support arbitrary OAuth providers. We'd like to do this someday, but it requires a certain balance between ease-of-use and security. The possibility of sharing queries makes that hard; for many possible solutions, it would be too easy for someone to share a malicious query which allows them to capture another user's authentication information.

  • I don't think so.

    Any further thoughts for Gavin?
