Error fetching JSON from AzureDevOps REST

I'm attempting to fetch data from Azure DevOps REST and getting the following error.  I've seen other threads on this, but none have bene answered.


When I save the JSON locally and parse it, it works fine, but it won't fetch data from the web service.


DataFormat.Error: We found extra characters at teh end of JSON input.

Hi @Dustin ,

Do you get the data with Web connector in Power BI Desktop?

If it is convenient, could you share your sample JSON code and your error message screenshot so that we could help further on it?

Best Regards,

What I'm getting back is HTML - a page for Azure signin.  I'm trying to figure out how to authenticate using a PAT so I can call DevOps REST.

I'm getting exactly the same error. At present I've not found any way around the issue. Any help is going to be greatly appreciated.
