I am attempting to import map data from an api endpoint that generates a json response. If I visit the url and save the response, I can import the json as file just fine.
If I attempt to import directly from the api via the url, I get “Unable to import file.”
The url which generates the json is https://wyolottodev.wpengine.com/wp-json/map/v1/winners/all/5000/2000
I’ve attached the resulting json file to this message – this imports just fine. But not when fetched from a url.
Does json fetched from a url require a different structure from json uploaded via a file? If so, what is that structure?

Thank you for getting in touch with us, we do appreciate your time.
We have found that you have also submitted a support ticket with us, thus we have responded to your ticket accordingly.
Should you not have received our email response, please see my response below:
Yes, the importer requires the JSON data to be in a specific format in order for the markers properties to be imported correctly. You may see our example JSON file from our documentation here: https://www.wpgmaps.com/wp-content/uploads/Example.json Link to Importing/Exporting documentation: https://www.wpgmaps.com/documentation/exporting-and-importing-your-markers/ With regards to the URL you are using, the importer currently looks for a file, thus because your endpoint currently does not point to a file, it just outputs data, the importer will not be able to import the data as it is looking for a JSON file. With that said, I would recommend if possible for you to output your API endpoint's data to a JSON file saved in your site (wp-content/uploads) and then use the URL of that file in the importer.
I hope this helps?
