Hidden Groups Running API's when not visible

Hey guys,

I have a single page native app. Just completed an integration with Pathfix and box for a file solution.

Since I can monitor calls on pathfix I’m having an issue with calls running when groups are hidden. These are calls structured to return results in a repeating group. Running into call limit issues and errors because of null values provided to the api.

Any insight? I thought apis wont run if the group isn’t visible.

Put a conditional onto the repeating group that uses the api call as the datasource. In the conditional make it so only when the rg or group is visible and the datasource be the api call. remove the api call from the main datasource. Now, your call will only run when the rg is visible.

Worked like a charm thank you!
