URL as Data Source?

In typical Adobe style, over at Work with Data-driven animation it says

Data Sources

You can use data from almost every possible source such as:

  • Device Generated Data Files – Data from devices such as fitness trackers that record activity through sensors and store them in different file formats. This time-varying data includes - speed, altitude, distance, heart rate, and various other parameters of user activity.
  • User Generated Static Data – Global static data such as survey results that can be changed to drive graphics. A user created data file could provide a workflow for global data.
  • URL – Live data from websites such as entry and exit path of a user navigating through a web page.
  • Metadata - Data embedded in Video File Metadata.

But there is absolutely nothing about how to use a URL as a data source.

Am I missing something?

Can I use a publicly accessible URL to a JSON file as a data source?

How?

The documentation is worded in a confusing way. What it should say is "You can download live data and pipe it into AE using one of the accepted input formats."

currently it needs to be a file AE can access directly. actually pulling from a live url would make a great feature request

This would be a great feature to have, I have a large team and it would be amazing for all of them to reference  1  CSV that lives on a website or a Google sheet.
