How do you filter an http request in Power Automate?

I have this http request: 

https://prices.azure.com/api/retail/prices?$filter=serviceName eq 'Virtual Machines' and priceType eq 'Reservation' and Location eq 'EU West'

 

and I'm wondering how to call this in Power Automate. 

 

I tried doing this but I don't think it worked since it's returning values from other locations:

But I don't it's working since the data returned includes all serviceNames, not just Virtual Machines. It also returns records that are not in the Location of EU West. 

I'm just unsure how to create those filters in Flow. Thank you.

Hi,

You need use a Parse JSON (Data operation)

Please try putting this whole string in the URI field, with the Queries field empty

 

https://prices.azure.com/api/retail/prices?$filter=(serviceName eq 'Virtual Machines') and (priceType eq 'Reservation') and (Location eq 'EU West')

I'm wondering if we can just parse the json and the use filter array on what is returned.

Sorry.  Thought that would do it.  Filtering the array later will work, but have you tried this?

Once entered, when you "peek code" within the ellipsis, it shows similar JSON queries parameter to your initial pic.

However, the serviceName and Location properties don't have the extra space shown in your initial pic.

Yeah that's the same thing I did, I just did peek code. It doesn't seem to filter on anything for some reason, it returns records for Storage serviceNames and Locations other than EU West.
