Power Query : making HTTP POST request with form data

0 votes

I have a REST API, which accepts only POST requests with form data.

My Power Query JSON requests looks something like this:

let
    url = "https://example.com",
    body = "{ ""first_param"": ""AAAAA"",  ""second_param"": ""BBBBBB""}",    

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


How can I send form data??

Try Using Uri.BuildQueryString and Json.Document

let
    url = "https://example.com",
    body  = "{ ""first_param"": ""AAAAA"",  ""second_param"": ""BBBBBB""}",
    Parsed_JSON = Json.Document(body),
    BuildQueryString = Uri.BuildQueryString(Parsed_JSON),
    Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents(url,[Headers = [#"Content-Type"="application/json"], Content = Text.ToBinary(body) ] ))
in
    Source
