REST API returns json but with xml wapper

I can access a REST API with my web browser, but the json it returns has an xml wrappper like this :

<string xmlns="http://blah.org/">

Then all good json, then the end of the wrapper.

</string>

When I try to load this into Qlik Sense using the Qlik Rest Connector I can create the connection fine and the <Test Connection> says Test was successful.

But when on the connection I go to Select data it fails to loads anything whatever I try.  I have a feeling that it the xml wrapper causing issues.  Anybody got any suggestions on how to sort this ?

Re: REST API returns json but with xml wapper

I think you can change that in requet. format of result require in json or xml

Re: REST API returns json but with xml wapper

Yup, one can change the request format to json, xml and other things, but the issue is that it is json within an xml wrapper and none of a request formats succeed.
