Getting Data for Web based Call



I am trying to connected to a web based tool - Bugzilla from Power BI.  From the bugzilla end we have modied xmlrpc.cgi file so that URL will not need any authentication and can be accessed as readonly.


However, when I am trying to paste the url and trying to connect, I am getting error as attached.


What type of data does the Power BI expects when it makes a web based call. And is there something that needs to be added from my end to get this connectivity as it looks like Power BI is sending a 'get' call and expects some input/output?

In Power BI Desktop, when using Web as data source, it takes web content directly. If authentication is required, you’ll be prompted to provide credentials.
