+1 increment database number acting as = 1

I’d adding a purchase from Stripe to a users " number of X purchased" via a backend workflow, and I think I’m going to lose my mind.
purchase = this users purchase + 1 makes the database entry 1. If I say + 5, it will make it five, but will not ADD anything, just set the number. I’ve tried everything, but this has totally stalled my development. What is going on here?! I know I have the right user, the field is set to number. I have no idea what to do.

have you checed privacy rules?
It looks like the workflow doesn’t have privileges to read the value, so it’s always 0 + 1, 0 + 5 ecc


That sounds exactly right. How would I change the privacy settings of a backend workflow? I don’t want to expose the stripe customer.

Ok I did “ignore privacy rules” and it works, so I guess that’s it. Thank you for your help.
