Data Extraction from web content



I have a use case wherein i am extracting data from OData.Feed. This will return me few data fields using which i will have to construct a web link and extract few more data fields. 


In first instance it is working fine and i am connecting using Gateway. For the second part i am getting below error message as the web link is getting created dynamically.

This dataset includes a dynamic data source. Since dynamic data sources aren't refreshed in the Power BI service, this dataset won't be refreshed. Learn more:

  • Data source for Query1

How can we make it work or is it not possible at all ? The same works fine from desktop.




The workitem ID needs to go into the RelativePath parameter.

You need to try and present a static base URL to the Power BI service.  Show a sanitized version of the Power Query code.

I am using below line, url is field name from the table having the web link to workitem

url looks like


Table.AddColumn(#"Added Custom", "VSTS", each Json.Document(Web.Contents([url])))

The workitem ID needs to go into the RelativePath parameter.

I didn't get you, pls could you elaborate. Is not possible to pass dynamic query or is there any work around solution for it
