Cannot access Project data table through Power Query / Power BI RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am currently able to access data in power bi / power query via OAuth:

    When I do this, it shows me all the available tables I can load. For example, I load 'TimesheetLines', and it loads the table. I have to sign in prior using my Organisation credentials, and this works fine.

    (I have full admin right on my organisation's O365 account, with Project, and Power BI licenses)

    However, when I try to load the 'Projects' table, it asks me again for credentials but then gives me an error 'The user was not authorized'.

    Can anybody help? It's a big issue for us at the moment

    Many thanks

  • Hi,

    it does work, but is a little tricky. I assume there is a default field, which Power BI can just not deal with. Unfortunatley, I don't know which one. I have read about ParentProjectId, but it is definitely not to only one.

    After selecting Project table, DON'T click on "Load", but on "Edit". Query editor will be displayed. Click on Choose Columns, deselect all and re-select only the ones, you really need. Click on Close and Apply and you will see your project data.
