From my understanding you want the consumed data (the response of the RestAPI) to be shown on a page.


In this case you need to do the following

  1. Create json stracture
  2. Create import mapping
  3. Create a page to display the data 
  4. Create a microflow to call the service


Just follow the instructions here: 



Step1: Create a microflow and inside the microflow call the activity "Call REST"
Step2: Double click Call REST API activity, in the location load the URL, in the Respose tab map the import mapping 
Step3: After import mapping we get the JSON to Mendix object/list and pass that object/list to the page

Note: To create import mapping 
1.Right click the module and add a JSON structure of the API and click "format" it,
2.Right click the module and add a Import mapping in that click JSON and select JSON structure created previously
