Hello, Virtual DataPort allows importing data from JSON formats and these data sources allows Denodo Platform to connect to RESTful Web services by connecting to a resource URL which returns a response with a payload formatted in JSON. I could create a new data source by navigating to File > New > Data source > JSON in Denodo Administration Tool or Design Studio. After naming the new data source, I could choose a Data route that shows the path to the JSON file and could create a JSON data source. I could use the HTTP client for the path that is the most common path type in the Data route to send a request with the HTTP method GET, PUT, POST, DELETE or PATH. The document [JSON Sources](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/8.0/en/vdp/administration/creating_data_sources_and_base_views/json_sources/json_sources) describe how to create a new JSON data source. I would use this document as a useful reference. Hope this helps!
