Power BI Connector for eBay

Build 21.0.7930

Creating the Data Source Name

This section describes how to edit the DSN configuration and then authenticate and connect to eBay APIs.

Editing the DSN Configuration

You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to edit the DSN configuration. Note that the DSN is created during the installation process, as described in Installing the Connector.

Complete the following steps to edit the DSN configuration:

  1. Select Start > Search, and enter ODBC Data Sources in the Search box.
  2. Choose the version of the ODBC Administrator that corresponds to the bitness of your Power BI Desktop installation (32-bit or 64-bit).
  3. Click the System DSN tab.
  4. Select the system data source and click Configure.
  5. Edit the information on the Connection tab and click OK.

Connecting to eBay APIs

By default, the connector connects to production environments. Set UseSandbox to true to use a eBay sandbox account.

Authenticating to eBay

eBay uses the OAuth 2.0 authentication standard and the Auth'n'Auth, the traditional authentication used by the eBay APIs. To authenticate using OAuth or Auth'n'Auth, depending on how your app is configured, you will need to create an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, DevID, and CallbackURL connection properties. See Using OAuth Authentication for an authentication guide.

Next Step

See Getting Data for the next step, which is connecting to the data that you want to work with.
