Hi @DanielPasalic ,

 

It is very dangerous and unnessary for you to put your URL and Key in a public formula, We suggest you to delete your picture and hide the URL in your request example if it contain any Confidential Information As soon as possible.

 

So back to your question, could you please try to use the advanced option of web connector?

Hi Dong Li
No this URL do not contain any kind of confidential information. 
However, I changed the subscriptoin key so this URL is not current longer. 
I also used advanced option of web connector but it is the same. 
Somehow, I do not know what information to place where. 
Anything you can help me with?

Hi @DanielPasalic ,

 

What authentication does the API support? There is a blog about how to connect to API in Power BI Desktop for your reference:
https://chris.koester.io/index.php/2015/07/16/get-data-from-twitter-api-with-power-query/

 

If your are connecting to a REST API, you can refer to the similar post: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Power-Query/Using-a-REST-API-as-a-data-source/td-p/50400

 

If you do not know where to put the key, try to append it to the last part of your url? such as http://URL/?keyname=XXX.
