Unable to connect to web data source - duplicate name error

Hey Guys,

lately I've been working a lot with REST APIs as data source and I've encountered this error:
duplicate name2.PNG
Which is really weird because there is no duplicate of the '$type' field in the returned record. As I was trying to figure out what might cause this error it got even weirder. I turned the page size of the returned records down to 1 and called the endpoint multiple times. This was the result:
duplicate name.PNG
As you can see the query works fine for some of the requests, but fails for most of them. Structurely, there is no difference in the response. Exporting the data to JSON and importing it manually also works fine for all the data. Has anyone encountered this behaviour before?
Thanks in advance!
