Unable to connect to on-premise SharePoint excel files from Qlik sense

Hi Team,

I am trying to connect to our on-premise SharePoint sites to read data into Qlik sense. I have been using the below link as reference


The file which I want to read is a .xlsx file and as a REST connector cannot read excel files, I have tried to use web file connection in the following manner


The above URL is working in any browser with the file being downloaded. But when I give this URL in the qlik web file connection, I am getting Unauthorized error even after providing credentials in the URL.


Can someone please help me to resolve this issue? 

Note: Office 365 SharePoint connector is not working for us as ours is an on-premise SharePoint
