Avoid URL encoding in the Query of Web.Contents

Hello all, 

 

In order to avoid a dynamic url in Web.Contents (to automatcaly refresh dashboard in Power BI Services), and given tha paging system of the Azure API, I wrote the code below to achieve so, but I found out that in the HTTP request, the Path variable in query_param is url-encoded, making it differentto the URL expected by the API. 

 

Is there any way to disable this enconding or do you know another approach to change the parameters of the URL properly?

 

Thank you in advance.

 

 

let
        GetPages = (Path as text)=>
        let
            Host = "https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/xxxxxx/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines?api-version=2022-11-01",
			query_param= [#"api-version"=Path],

            Source = Json.Document(
                Web.Contents(
                    Host, 
                    [Query = query_param]
                )),
            LL= @Source[value],
 
            Next = Text.Replace(Source[#"nextLink"], Host, ""),
            result = try @LL & @GetPages(Next) otherwise @LL
        in
        result,

        Host = "https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/xxxxxx/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines?api-version=2022-11-01",
        Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents(Host)),
        Next = Text.Replace(Source[#"nextLink"], Host, ""),
        first= @Source[value],
        Fullset = first&GetPages(Next)

in Fullset

Any solution? Same here. My Query parameters automaticaly get encoded so instead of the correct parameter:

search=(status:(values:List(ACTIVE)))  
The following is what gets requested and I get 400 Bad request
search=%28status%3A%28values%3AList%28ACTIVE%29%29%29 
How can I prevent it from encoding?

Please remove the query parameters from the base URL.
