Qlik Sense Rest connection when response gives several tables

Is it possible to avoid the problem that an API gives me several tables as a response. When connecting to for example https://api.worldoftanks.eu/wot/encyclopedia/tanks/?application_id=demo as a rest connector I can only get several tables as such

Is there an easy way when loading these to just create a long list of all the entries? Right now it gives me one entry per title. I'm guessing it can be done with a setting when importing the data. I would be able to just load and concatenate all of them but all tables return different fieldnames when requesting them.

Re: Qlik Sense Rest connection when response gives several tables

Hi David,

This is definitely a strange structure to parse - I also tried this endpoint / resource: https://api.worldoftanks.ru/wot/encyclopedia/vehicles/?application_id=demo  - because the one you provided had a note about being deprecated and was hoping they would combine the structure. I am not sure why a single member is created to return a row of data for the same field names. If there isn't a way to adjust the response in the API with provided parameters AND all the field names that come back are the same, then Qlik should automatically concatenate this into one table. Let me know if you would like me to solicit additional help.

mto‌ I tried this after watching your youtube video about the star wars rest connector. You said it took some fiddling to get it working, I was just wondering if this is something you've fiddled with
