Use Retrived URLs from a column via API as data source

Hallo  Community , I am trying to figure out a solution for the following issue.

 

I am making an API call which fetches me a column with URLs of all the CSV files i need for an Account. These CSV files contain the actual data which i need for reporting. After this I can manually copy each URL and use it as my data source but i do not want to do this and check here if there is a way to automate this process and use all these retrieved URLs as my data sources.

 

There are new URLs generated frequently on a weekly basis and unfortunately the provider can only support till a point where i can retrieve all the URLs (_csv files).

 

Please suggest how can i deal with this and use these retrieved URLs automatically.

 

Regards

Vissam

Hi @v-yanjiang-msft  Thank you for the refernce. Found a solution where i just created a simple function which in turn references a parameter. And by the main table,  just created a invoked function column and that did the job..
