I have a strange issue occurring that I can’t seem to find an explanation for.
I have in my database a data type of
RED. images with data fields A. image B. image_list C. ID
I also have in database a data type of
BLUE. image_list with data fields A. list of images B. ID
The relation is that the data field of B. image_list from data type RED. images is related to the BLUE.image_list data type. And then the BLUE. image_list data type is related to RED. image data type through the data field A. list of images.
So the image that is uploaded as a “image file” is the data field A. image in the data type RED. images.
I am using an API workflow to create a new set of images
I am creating my image list on a product upload page. It is using a list of numbers to generate the specific number of images for that product category type.
When I run through this everything up to a point is getting set up in the database correctly.
There is the one problem at this point…notice in the database that the list_of_images in the BLUE.image_list data type is empty…I can’t get the workflow to allow me to update ( ie: make changes to a thing ) by adding the list of the RED. images data type that are created from the API workflow.
Instead I am only able to select image file to use as a way of making a change to a thing.
It is forcing me to try and select other options when it should just allow me to finish the sequence as the list_of_images is a relational data field to the data type RED. images
However, if I select a list of image files I am able to finalize the sequence.
In the above picture the yellow line indicates a list of image files
Below you can see the database structure
Anybody know why this might be the case…I can’t comprehend the reasoning on my own as it just seems like it is not updating the correct data type from the API workflow ( “result of step 4”)
