Database connection failed while connecting REST API using POST method with Authentication key.

Hi All,

 

I am trying to connect a REST API to Power BI using POST method - 

i have the following details - 

webURLhttps://mis.domain.com/fms-mobile/profile/searchPerson/

API header - Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

API Key - xxxxxxx

Request body - inputParam: {"searchValue":"0","searchId":"0","employeeCode":"0","apiKey":"xxxxxxxx","offset":"0","personId":"0"}

 

The API should return one of 2 options - and on success, it must display the results.

{

               "failure": {

                               "failure_status": 0,

                               "failure_message": ""

               },

               "success": {

                               "success_status": 1,

                               "success_message": ""

               },

            "result_data":[ ....

 

I have written the following code in the advanced editor -

let   

Query1 = Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://mis.domain.com/fms-mobile/profile/searchPerson/", [Headers = [#"Content-Type"="application/x-www-form-urlencoded"],

Content = Text.ToBinary("""inputparam"":{""searchValue"":""0"",""searchId"":""0"",""employeeCode"":""0"",""apiKey"":""xxxxxxx"",""offset"":""0"",""personId"":""0""                })]       

))

in Query1

 

This code is fetching the API information, however giving the result as database connection failed.

Manand

That seems to be a problem on "their" side.  Check with the API owner.
