Iterate Over Web API Pages With Power Query

Hi everyone,

 

I need a little help, please. I have access to API data: 

 

I'm using the following code to retrieve API data:

 

let iterations = 10,
url = "https://graph.facebook.com/v2.10/[ACCOUNT ID]/insights?access_token=[ACCESS TOKEN]",

FnGetOnePage =
  (url) as record =>
   let
    Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents(url)),
    data = try Source[data] otherwise null,
    next = try Source[paging][next] otherwise null,
    res = [Data=data, Next=next]
   in
    res,

 GeneratedList =
  List.Generate(
   ()=>[i=0, res = FnGetOnePage(url)],
   each [i]<iterations and [res][Data]<>null,
   each [i=[i]+1, res = FnGetOnePage([res][Next])],
   each [res][Data])
 in
  GeneratedList

Now I'm trying to retrieve this API data: 

 

 

 

 

What changes do I need to make to the original code for this? Any help, suggestion or guidance is much appreciated!

 

Many thanks,

Tanim

Fixed it by copy and pasting the last line from the new API data, it basically got rid of the extra "client_pages" bit and working like a charm. Looks like self help is the best help!
