@elimey , I think you may be having issue because your query is not in one line and there are linebreaks. I had similar issues as well and that's what fixed it.

@petrsvihlik on the topic of parameters, I am running a graphql query which pulls a list of team names and I would like to use that as parameter to get list of repo names, I understand that this may not be possible as the query storage type is Import vs Direct Query, is there alternative means to accomplish this objective? I had tried to follow the link you had shared in previous posts but I am not able to do what is described as the values I am getting is a list and I dont know how i can programmatically define the selected value in the query itself. Again, I think this may be a limitation of import vs direct query. I even created a table and entered the list in manually but I am not getting an option to do parameter binding on the actual parameter
