This dataset includes a dynamic data source.

Hi, I apreciate this question has been asked before, but none of the solutions have worked for me.
There's a funciton, which I use to expand a list of teams from Azure devops. The source "Teams" is loaded from dataflows and it gives me a list of IDs. The Query looks like this:

 

 

let
    Source = Teams,
    #"Removed Other Columns" = Table.SelectColumns(Source,{"TeamId", "TeamName"}),
    #"Invoked Custom Function" = Table.AddColumn(#"Removed Other Columns", "MembersCall", each MembersCall([TeamId])),
    #"Removed Errors" = Table.RemoveRowsWithErrors(#"Invoked Custom Function", {"MembersCall"}),
    #"Expanded MembersCall" = Table.ExpandTableColumn(#"Removed Errors", "MembersCall", {"displayName", "id"}, {"displayName", "id"}),
    #"Renamed Columns" = Table.RenameColumns(#"Expanded MembersCall",{{"displayName", "User"}, {"id", "UserID"}, {"TeamName", "Team"}, {"TeamId", "TeamID"}}),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Renamed Columns",{{"User", type text}, {"UserID", type text}}),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Normalisation", each "Distinct Active User", type text)
in
    #"Added Custom"

 


The function looks like this:

 

let
    Source = (Team_ID as text) => let
    Path = "https://dev.azure.com/",
    Repath = "vfuk-digital/_apis/projects/digital/teams/"&Team_ID&"/members?",
    Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents(Text.From(Path), [RelativePath=Repath, Query=[#"api-version"="6.0"]])),
    value = Source[value],
    #"Converted to Table" = Table.FromList(value, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error),
    #"Expanded Column2" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(#"Converted to Table", "Column1", {"identity"}, {"identity"}),
    #"Expanded identity" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(#"Expanded Column2", "identity", {"displayName", "id", "uniqueName"}, {"displayName", "id", "uniqueName"}),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Expanded identity",{{"displayName", type text}, {"id", type text}, {"uniqueName", type text}})
in
    #"Changed Type"
in
    Source

 


It works fine in the Desktop, but in the service it gives me this error:

As you can see I have already tried to use the relative path, but it didn't seem to change anything. The source won't refresh in the service.

Hi @pchmurzynskivf 

 

have a look at this blog post it might help Power Query Errors: Please Rebuild This Data CombinationThe Excelguru Blog

 

Another alternative is to rather store the ID's in a table and then get the function to call it from the table?

Thanks, but I know this link and I have tried this already. 
The IDs are stored in a table, no?

Hi @pchmurzynskivf 

 

Yes they would be stored in a table. And then your table will call the function?

Sorry, I meant to say, I am already doing that. The IDs are in a table.
