Hello,
Can you please share how the code should look like?
I'm getting the same errors with below code:
let
Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents("link")),
#"Converted to Table" = Table.FromList(Source, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error),
#"Expanded Column1" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(#"Converted to Table", {"fields"})
in
#"Expanded Column1"

Error message:
DataFormat.Error: We found extra characters at the end of JSON input.
Details:
Value=
Position=5

Hi,

  1. try to check the java code in sublime or any other compiler. There must be an extra "," or other things to join the existing code which you have to understand and remove to get in the data.
  2. firstly check with using wer content then convert it to json. This step will let you know if your credentials are working or not. if its not working then use headers and add authentication and token.

These things I will suggest you for now.

Hey!

 

Probably the response that you're getting from the API is not a valid JSON.

 

Try converting your query to the one below and then read the file as a TXT document by right clicking the binary icon and reading it as a TXT / CSV:

let
    Source = Web.Contents(
            "https://dev.azure.com/{organization}/{project}/_apis/work/teamsettings/iterations/{iterationId}/capacities/{teamMemberId}?api-version=6.0"
        )
in
    Source 

You need to determine if the response is a valid JSON or not.
