      Hey everyone – just wanted to post an update and say that this work item is still in our roadmap. We are focusing our efforts in enabling other critical features related to filtering such as personal bookmarks in the Power BI service. Thanks again for patience and feedback!

          For Web.Content it looks like there is some support for parameters.

          If the source is:
          Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://data.gov.uk/api/3/action/package_search?q=blah"))

          Just add in a Query option with the parameter, like this:
          Term = "blah",
          Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://data.gov.uk/api/3/action/package_search?q=default", [Query=[q=Term]]))

          In our case our API which I'm trying to hit has params as slugs in the URL itself, which does not seem to be supported yet. e.g. https://our-api.com/{term}/data/stuff

          Web.Contents (Query option):
