Additional information

Max Rows Most REST APIs only return a small amount of data on a single API request. To retrieve the necessary data, you can set a value in this field. Pagination is handled internally and will fetch the required amount of data.
Refresh Settings A period will pass before the next refresh call is triggered. This will automatically trigger a call for the API configured in the data source to keep the data up to date.

Setting up the URL

  1. For instance, to get calendar resource details, use the following resource.<:locationId>
