connection OData webservice (using NTLM)

7 - Meteor

Hi All,


I'm trying to setup a connection with our accounting platform (MS Dynamics NAV 2015) which is hosted in a private cloud environment.


NAV allows me to establish a web service supporting an OData connection.


I'm able to retreive the data using OData download in Power BI (and Internet Explorer) but I'm getting a "HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized" when connecting via Alteryx using the standard username and password option.


Postman showed me that Power BI is using a NTLM connection which I added in my headers but that gives me a "bad request".


Anyone else had a similar issue or other suggestions to connect from Alteryx to NAV?
