Do a query based on the result of a previous query

Hi, 

I have a first query (API call: POST https://api.intercom.io/conversations) that return:

id_of_conversation - ....

 

Then I would like to do a second query: API call: POST https://api.intercom.io/conversations/{id_of_conversation}

 

How can I do to do a query that uses the list returned by the previous query? 

 

I have created a list with all id_of_conversation. Then I tried to create a new source but it fails:

 

let
Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://api.intercom.io/conversations/" & conv_id_param, [Headers=[Accept="application/json", Authorization="Bearer xxxxxxxxx="]]))
in
Source

I receive this error message: "Formula.Firewall: Query '22394727443' (step 'Source') references other queries or steps, so it may not directly access a data source. Please rebuild this data combination."

 

 

Thanks for your help

 

Best Regards,
Paul

Re: Do a query based on the result of a previous query

Hi @pauldesart 

It seems you want to return some rows/columns from API call: POST https://api.intercom.io/conversations,

This is filtered by selected id_of_conversation.

 

For example, there are many id_of_conversation(1,2,3) in the API call https://api.intercom.io/conversations,, but you want to return all rows where id_of_conversation=1.

or you want to return only one column "id_of_conversation".

 

If so, you could create query parameter, then use it in connection string in Advanced editor.
