Import Data from Sharepoint online to SSAS Tabular model


  • I'm using SSAS Tabular in Visual Studio(2015) and are trying to connect to a Sharepoint Online List, however I am getting the following error while I was trying to add Other Feeds Data source to the model (when I click the Test Connection).

    The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.

    I have a windows login in credentials which I am supposed to use for connecting to the Source. I am 100% sure that those credentials have access to the source because I am able to connect to the data source using excel with those credentials. I tried this "/_vti_bin/listdata.svc" by appending to my Data feed URL. Can any one help me with that...

  • Greetings!  I have the same problem here - 403 Forbidden error when trying to add SharePoint Online list data into a tabular model in Visual Studio.  This occurs both when trying the listdata.svc as mentioned above, as well as the RSS listfeed.aspx method.  Any ideas?
