Web.Content parameters from Postman dump

I got specifics from an API service I need to query (it’s an ML algorithm endpoint) in JSON exported from Postman. Nothing else but this is the documentation I can refer to.

I’ve been through Web.Content documentation in Microsoft (very poor indeed) this [link] also referred (https://eriksvensen.wordpress.com/2014/09/15/specifying-json-query-in-power-query-example-statistics-sweden/). This Chris Webb video warns me it a complex topic.

So my attempts stopped here. Is there any way to build the Web.Content call starting from a Postman export?

let

content =
"{
““header””: [
{
““key””: ““request-source””,
““value””: ““mlaas-api””
}
],
““examples””: [
{
““Input1"”: ““The service(s) NETBACKUP PROXY SERVICE have been automatically restarted more than 5 times in a 24h period. Please investigate if this is expected behaviour.””
}
]
}”,

Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents(“https://fake.url.com/service/mlaas/classification/” & “dataModelId=175” & “apiKey=EE342B345-30B7-4023-FAFA-768A5CB3E0”, [Content=Text.ToBinary(content)])),
#“Converted to Table” = Record.ToTable(Source)
in
#“Converted to Table”

Hi @Roberto , we aim to consistently improve the topics being posted on the forum to help you in getting a strong solution faster. While waiting for a response, here are some tips so you can get the most out of the forum and other Enterprise DNA resources.

  • Use the forum search to discover if your query has been asked before by another member.
  • When posting a topic with formula make sure that it is correctly formatted to preformated text </>.
  • Use the proper category that best describes your topic
  • Provide as much context to a question as possible.
  • Include demo pbix file, images of the entire scenario you are dealing with, screenshot of the data model, details of how you want to visualize a result, and any other supporting links and details.

I also suggest that you check the forum guideline How To Use The Enterprise DNA Support Forum. Not adhering to it may sometimes cause delay in getting an answer.

after some trying, I got what I wanted!
In the header section adding the Content Type mad the trick.

Microsoft should add some more documentation to the Web.Contents function anyway.

Thanks All!

Roberto

output = Web.Contents(url, [Headers=[#"Content-Type"="application/json"], Content=Text.ToBinary(body)]),
// 
Source = Json.Document(output)
