I want to connect to PowerBI through API. Do we get API for a enterprise user like me to connect to PowerBI or other tool.

Hello @mayangelu.beloso

If you want to connect the LSEG APIs with Power BI tool, there are some old posts about this scenario as follows:

As my colleague said in the second post above, the Power Bi can connect to data by using existing connects and generic data sources like CSV, XML, JSON, etc. (see Connector extensibility in Power BI page), so any LSEG APIs that provides data in those format likes the Data API (need Workspace desktop application running in the same machine), Refinitiv Data Platform APIs - REST, Data Libraries (Python, .NET, TypeScript), LSEG Tick History - REST API etc. should be able to connect to Power BI using the Custom connectors.

However, if you just want to connect to Power BI using Power BI's API, there is the Power BI REST APIs for you.

Hi @mayangelu.beloso,

In addition to responses from Wasin, I would like to add that Data Platform API is another enterprise product which offers rich fundamental data through REST calls, and can be used to programmatically integrate with Power BI.

Here is an example of EU Taxonomy data from CFS API integrated into the dashboard:
