Power BI Service: JQL fails Jira API connection

I have made a connection to the Jira server and as long as I do not include the JQL the connection works fine, though out of the 150K records on the server I am only able to pull 1,800. With the query I have written I expect ~5K records. With the JQL included in the URL I get the following error: "Web.Contents failed to get contents from '"


In summary, my problem is twofold: 1) I need the JQL in order to reduce the population I am pulling, and 2) I am not able to pull the full population.


Anyone know what I am missing? Thanks!


(here is the M script I am working with)


    BaseUrl = "",
    JiraIDPerPage = 1000,
    JiraFields = "&fields=jira fields",
    Jql = "jql=project in (PROJECTS)",
    GetJson = (Url) =>
        let RawData = Web.Contents(Url),
            Json    = Json.Document(RawData)
        in  Json,
    GetJiraIDCount = () =>
        let Url   = BaseUrl & "&maxResults=0",
            Json  = GetJson(Url),
            Count = Json[#"total"]
        in  Count,
    GetPage = (Index) =>
        let Skip  = "&startAt=" & Text.From(Index * JiraIDPerPage),
            Top   = "&maxResults=" & Text.From(JiraIDPerPage),
            Url   = BaseUrl & Jql & Skip & Top & JiraFields,
            Json  = GetJson(Url),
            Value = Json[#"issues"]
        in  Value,
    JiraIDCount = List.Max({ JiraIDPerPage, GetJiraIDCount() }),
    PageCount   = Number.RoundUp(JiraIDCount / JiraIDPerPage),
    PageIndices = { 0 .. PageCount - 1 },
    Pages       = List.Transform(PageIndices, each GetPage(_)),
    JiraID      = List.Union(Pages),
    Table       = Table.FromList(JiraID, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error),
    #"Expanded Column1" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(Table, "Column1", {"id", "key", "fields"}, {"", "Column1.key", "Column1.fields"})
    #"Expanded Column1"

Okay figured out the way to fix the limited population was to reduce the JiraIDPerPage variable to 100. Still stuck on why the JQL is causing an error.
