GraphQL query in Power BI?

Hello,

I am trying to connect to a GraphQL api through Power BI and could use some advice. In the Postman API tool I have written a working query, like this:

h4tt3n_0-1599739682395.png

The query is above, and part of the response is below. The URL is a https web address with a single subscription-key parameter.

How do I implement this in Power Query?

Cheers, and thanks in advance, Mike

Have you guys ever tried pagination in this code. Need help for using pagination for retrieving all pages.

i found a tool that is really helpful from me:  "PowerBI Query Generator for GitHub GraphQL API v4" :

 https://jsfiddle.net/rockyintel/1sqm7dpf/

i entered my graphQL query 

and got the following Power Query M formula which works ! in my query i am using x-api-key as the key name.

this is the output from the generator tool:

let
Source = Web.Contents(
"https://myURL",
[
Headers=[
#"Method"="POST",
#"Content-Type"="application/json",
#"x-api-key"="putMyKeyHere"
],
Content=Text.ToBinary("{""query"": ""{ list{ items{  id name } } }""}")
]
),
#"JSON" = Json.Document(Source),
data = JSON[data]
in
data

For me the following code works: 

Source = Web.Contents(
"http://localhost/HOPEXGraphQL/api/ITPM",
[
Headers=[
#"Method"="POST",
#"Content-Type"="application/json",
#"Authorization"="Bearer " & gottoken,
#"X-Hopex-Context" = "{""EnvironmentId"":""M6LC(Gp3VzSP"",""RepositoryId"":""ihd7)1IVRXR9"",""ProfileId"":""757wuc(SGjpJ""}"
],
// Notice the quote escaping here
Content=Text.ToBinary("{""query"":""query{ application{ id name applicationType businessProcess{ id name} applicationOwner_PersonSystem{ id name } sentApplicationFlow_ApplicationParticipant{ id name } receivedApplicationFlow_ApplicationParticipant{ id name }} }""}")
]
),
#"JSON" = Json.Document(Source),
data = JSON[data]

Hi. You can try this. Assuming the response is a json. Imagine this is your URL: "https://swapi.dev/api/people/?search=Skywalker" and the body is a simple json with two params.

Then the code might be like this:

let
Json_body = Json.FromValue("{ ""first_param"": ""AAAAA"",  ""second_param"": ""BBBBBB""}",),
Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://swapi.dev/api/", [
    RelativePath="people/",
    Query=[search="Skywalker"],
    Headers=[#"Content-Type"="application/json"], 
    Content=Json_body
]))
in
Source

Hope it helps.
