Get JSON from open URL

Hello all.

When visiting the following url in a browser, the result is a JSON output: https://www.instagram.com/<username>/?__a=1

(Replace <username> with a valid Instagram handle)

I was under the impression I could just use the Bubble API connector to hit this URL and it would return the JSON. Since there is no auth required etc. Despite numerous efforts, that’s appear to not be the case.

Is there any other way to do this with bubble? I popped it in to integromat and it works as expected on a plain url hit. Ideally I’d like to do this directly in bubble given the simple nature of it but it seems to not want to work.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Looks like it can’t be done that way.

Using the Toolbox, Im able to get the result as JSON.

Getting that data in to bubble is now proving difficult. Any ideas how you get JSON data stored in a JS variable into Bubble to make use of? The toolbox throws an error wanting a string but getting an object which I get, I just don’t know how to work with it.
