Web.Contents Query parameter - multiple parameters with same name

I am trying to run the following API call:
https://api.address.com/api/v1?code=xxxxxxxxxxxx&fields=CallerNumber&fields=Date&fields=NumberDialed
It runs fine in browser / postman

I want to use Web.Contents Query option, but since the API syntax requires me to precede each field with a separate "field=" clause, it gives me error:
Expression.Error: The name 'fields' is defined more than once.
Here is my PQ:
= Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://api.address.com/api/v1?code=xxxxxxxxxxxx",
[
Query= [
fields="CallerNumber",
fields="Date",
fields="NumberDialed"
]]))

I cannot use "fields=CallerNumber,Date,NumberDialed" syntax in API, only state "fields=" for each field
I tried

fields="CallerNumber&fields=Date&fields=NumberDialed" (I thought it would pass it as one string), but it didn't work

I do want to use Query option.

Any ideas?

Please try using following syntax it worked for me:

fields={"FieldName1","FieldName2","FieldName3",...}

 

In your case it would be:

 

 

= Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://api.address.com/api/v1?code=xxxxxxxxxxxx",
[
Query= [
fields={"CallerNumber","Date","NumberDialed"}
]]))

I did. I've checked like 30 google pages before opening this post, indluding the link you've sent.

I am asking for a specific case, which is not addressed there.

Can you help?
