Pass parameter in M query to retrieve data from SQL Server database

We are using Power BI Desktop for Report Server (May 2021). Within the query editor we are trying to create a query that retrieves data from an SQL Server database and have it filtered by a parameter. The parameter is "companyIds".


The query we are using is:


select COMPANY_ID as [Company Id], PUBLIC_COMPANY_ID as [Company Number]#(lf)from dbo.COMPANY where COMPANY_ID in(companyIds)


We are unable to get it to work. Please let us know if what we are trying to do is possible and if so what would be the solution.
