Help, getting a text list into a thing list

Hi Bubblers, I love Bubble but I have been stuck for the last week on this problem.

  1. I call an API which returns a text list “tech list” (green box)
  2. Each tech list item is also a thing with the tech list text its “tech tag” (blue box)
  3. Suppliers (red box) is a thing list (not a text list) of the tech lists corresponding things.

So in this example, should be a supplier of Basecamp because it is listed in the tech list “customer_io” which matches the tech tag “customer_io”.

I’ve tried many many different ways in Bubble but I cannot get anything to work. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance


I have tried the transform list plugin from @gaurav and I have tried his other recommendation here
