API to connect web databse and power bi

Hi everyone.


Im trying to connect a web database ( to Power BI and I do not know which type of API I can use in order to fill the fields required to obtain the information just in Power BI, in other words, directly from Power BI and without the need for choosing the information and downloading it from the website.


I hope anyone can help me.


Thanks in advance community.

@Anonymous Fire up Fiddler when retrieving data on the web. You will see what requests are issued and then you can use Web.Content in Power BI to issue the same queries.

But Fiddler shows every http used, the thing is what I need to make the web queries in power bi, instead of going back and forth to the web and then to Power BI.


Thanks once again.
