How to plot Dynatrace metrics api data to Power BI Linechart

Hi,

I am having some problems in plotting the data from dynatrace API. Indeed they come in a particular json format, like the following:

 

 

"data": [
                {
                    "dimensions": [
                        "HOST-177FFDC0829EAC9C"
                    ],
                    "dimensionMap": {
                        "dt.entity.host": "HOST-177FFDC0829EAC9C"
                    },
                    "timestamps": [
                        1709648340000,
                        1709648400000,
                        1709648460000,
                        1709648520000,
                        1709648580000,
                        1709648640000,
                        1709648700000,
                        1709648760000,
                        1709648820000,
                        1709648880000,
                        1709648940000,
                        1709649000000,
                        1709649060000,
                        1709649120000,
                        1709649180000,
                        1709649240000
                    ],
                    "values": [
                        100,
                        100,
                        100,
                        100,
                        100,
                        100,
                        99.99674986985822,
                        100,
                        99.99343512952328,
                        100,
                        100,
                        100,
                        99.99348439400394,
                        100,
                        null,
                        null
                    ]
                },

 

 

and I am not able to transform it properly in power BI.
I attach the pbix file (the table I am interested in is "host_cpu_lab".

Can you show me please how to transform the data so as to be able to plot it in a line chart?

Thank you

In the end, I managed to achieve my goal by splitting the dataset in two parts and assigning and adding to each part an index column

Hi @PowerBI88 ,

Please try the following methods and check if they can solve your problem:

1.Expand the data column to rows in Power Query Editor.

 

2.Enter the following statement in the Advanced Editor.

 

let
    Source = Json.Document(File.Contents("C:\Users\v-huizhn\Downloads\generated.json")),
    #"Converted to Table" = Table.FromList(Source, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error),
    #"Expanded Column1" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(#"Converted to Table", "Column1", {"UserId", "id", "tipSecurableSet"}, {"Column1.UserId", "Column1.id", "Column1.tipSecurableSet"}),
    #"Expanded Column1.tipSecurableSet" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(#"Expanded Column1", "Column1.tipSecurableSet", {"id", "Clients"}, {"Column1.tipSecurableSet.id", "Column1.tipSecurableSet.Clients"}),
    #"Expanded Column1.tipSecurableSet.Clients" = Table.ExpandListColumn(#"Expanded Column1.tipSecurableSet", "Column1.tipSecurableSet.Clients"),
    #"Expanded Column1.tipSecurableSet.Clients1" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(#"Expanded Column1.tipSecurableSet.Clients", "Column1.tipSecurableSet.Clients", {"@odata.type", "typeId", "Entityids", "Clientid"}, {"Column1.tipSecurableSet.Clients.@odata.type", "Column1.tipSecurableSet.Clients.typeId", "Column1.tipSecurableSet.Clients.Entityids", "Column1.tipSecurableSet.Clients.Clientid"})
in
    #"Expanded Column1.tipSecurableSet.Clients1"

 

3.You can also view the following link to learn more about transform json data.

4.Only the super user can attach the pbix files. You can use the following method to provide the sample data.
