Loop API call to obtain results based on single param change (from a list)

I am calling the ClickUp API to collect time sheet data from the "time_entries" endpoint. I can call the API for an individual user based on their user ID, this is passed in the URL paramiter.

 

I have created a list in PowerBI of all my users with their ID's called ClickUpAllUsers.

I've also created a function which I can enter the ClickUpId to as  parameter.

 

(Assignee as text)=>
let
Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://api.clickup.com/api/v2/team/<teamid>/time_entries?include_location_names=true&include_task_tags=true&start_date=1640997106&assignee="&Assignee, [Headers=[Authorization="<authcode>"]]))
in
Source

 This also works ok manually entering the ID.

 

I know I need to create a new blank query which loops through the userlist and calls the function to create a set of new lists, but I cannot figure out who to loop through the list of IDs and pass them to the Assignee param.

 

Can anyone assist?

Hi, @DamianMcc ;

When you add a custom column (Invoke Custom Function), change the drop down to Column Name and select the app_id column.  Then, the function will pass in the app_id value from each row into the function (into the URL) and perform the query steps you designed earlier.  If you need to pass a bearer token to the URL for each app_id value, if it is the same bearer token for every app_id, you can add an Authorization header to the URL request.

I may have solved it with the help of exploring related articles.

 

Is this the best way?

 

 

 

let
    Source = ClickUpAllUsers,
    AddColumn =
        Table.AddColumn(
            Source,
            "Custom",
            each FxClickUpTimev2([ClickupId])
        )
in
    AddColumn
