Store a Rest API in Power BI

Hello, 

 

I'm a debutant in power BI. I have an API that is completely independent from power bi and gives me new information every 10 minutes without storing it. I would like to use power bi to read and store the information (add new lines to each column every 10 min), in a database. I've succeeded in reading the information with power bi, but every 10 min I have new data and I loose the previous information I had. 

 

Can you help me building the databse that will store the information given every 10 min ?

I think this may be of value for you.  It's a roundabout way of doing it but it works.  Please see what this person came up with to do what you are looking for.

Re: Store a Rest API in Power BI

Thank you very much for this link. I now have a new table with the union of a "not refreshed" table & a table that refreshes every 10min "refresh table". The  problem is : when this new table refreshes, instead of adding new lines from the "refresh table", it changes the new table content. @luisrh
