Trying to load a Post request on QlikSense using Rest Connector

Dear all,

I am struggling to load more than the first line on a post call.

In order to help a association of customer, I am trying to connect to the API of the rail services, to check the delays of the trains. In the past they had a restful api, now they changed it to a post call made in a hideous way, design in my point of view to block any attempt of automatic get the data.

So to share more details with, I activated the Developer tools of my google chrome and tried to sniff the calls being made by the browser.

I set up the connector and I am being able to get the first line, but I dont understand, why I dont get the remaining lines.

The body is a huge and horrendous thing, but to create an automated procedure i only need to change two parameters in the body txtTrainNumber=768 and txtSelectedDateTrain=06%2F02%2F2018, like that I can interate by the trains and by the dates.

It would be great an extra hand just to understand why I dont get full expected csv attached, and I just get the first row.

Thank you
