    "Bad OData Format. Make sure you are using a URL that points to a valid OData Source" Tableau 10.1.5

      I have trouble connecting to an OData feed, as I get this error message : "Bad OData Format. Make sure you are using a URL that points to a valid OData Source".

      Can you help me solve that or any suggestion, please?

       

      Below is my steps:

      1. I ran a Web API Odata of .NET with domain http://localhost:21900/  and the api works when I call by postman (see below screenshot)

       

      2. After I input the URL to Odata connection form (see below screenshot)

      3. But  I receive a permission error (see below screenshot)

       

      4. When I change to the URL http://localhost:21900/odata/Products, I get a new error: "Bad OData Format. Make sure you are using a URL that points to a valid OData Source" (see below screenshot)
