I have integrated Airtable tables into Power Bi desktop using API key. Now I want to set up the auto refresh of data on Power Bi online and it asks for credentials. I am not sure what credentials I should be using as I tried API key & Bearer token, but nothing seems to work.

Authorization worked well on Power Bi desktop (check my post here: Airtable to PowerBI easy integration with API key).

If anyone has any ideas, please help me to set up auto refresh.

Has anyone found a solution for this issue? We are also running into an issue with auto-refreshing data from Airtable in Power BI.

@Akshay_R did the solution posted on reddit work for you?

Still doesn’t work. It’s almost certainly a Power BI problem. So if anyone has any luck getting any answers from them let us know!

Weird that it works differently on desktop vs on
