Calling Azure API using Power BI with Next Link

0 votes

Here is the API I'm calling;

https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/< subscription >/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines?api-version=2017-12-01

I've seen other pages and forums with a similar issue (such as Microsoft API), but not for Azure API. 

Their code;

let
GetUserInfo = (Path)=>
let
     Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents(Path)),
     LL= @Source[value], 
     result = try @LL & @GetUserInfo(Source[#"@odata.nextLink"]) otherwise @LL

in
result,
    Fullset = GetUserInfo("https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/users?$select=manager&$expand=manager"),
    #"Converted to Table" = Table.FromList(Fullset, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error),
    #"Expanded Column1" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(#"Converted to Table", "Column1", {"id", "displayName", "manager"}, {"Column1.id", "Column1.displayName", "Column1.manager"}),
    #"Expanded Column1.manager" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(#"Expanded Column1", "Column1.manager", {"id", "displayName"}, {"id", "displayName"}),
    #"Renamed Columns" = Table.RenameColumns(#"Expanded Column1.manager",{{"Column1.displayName", "Employee Full Name"}, {"Column1.id", "Employee Id"}, {"id", "Manager Id"}, {"displayName", "Manager Full name"}})
in
    #"Renamed Columns"

Compared to the start of mine once I've connected the source by the simple web link;

let
    Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/< subscription >/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines?api-version=2017-12-01")),
    #"Converted to Table" = Record.ToTable(Source)
in
    #"Converted to Table"

If I were to adjust it, I think it should look something like this;

let
GetUserInfo = (Path)=>
let
     Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents(Path)),
     LL= @Source[value], 
     result = try @LL & @GetUserInfo(Source[#"@odata.nextLink"]) otherwise @LL

in
result,
    Fullset = GetUserInfo("https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/< subscription >/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines?api-version=2017-12-01"),
    #"Converted to Table" = Record.ToTable(Source)
in
    #"Converted to Table"

However, I am prompted with the following;

Expression.Error: The name 'Source' wasn't recognized.  Make sure it's spelled correctly.

Thanks.

Try this



let
    iterations = 10,
    url = 
     "https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/< subscription >/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines?api-version=2017-12-01",

    FnGetOnePage =
     (url) as record =>
      let
       Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents(url)),
       data = try Source[value] otherwise null,
       next = try Source[nextLink] otherwise null,
       res = [Data=data, Next=next]
      in
       res,

    GeneratedList =
     List.Generate(
      ()=>[i=0, res = FnGetOnePage(url)],
      each [i]<iterations and [res][Data]<>null,
      each [i=[i]+1, res = FnGetOnePage([res][Next])],
      each [res][Data])
    in
     GeneratedList
