How to call external API in Backend Workflow

Hi, I’m trying to call an external API from within a Backend Workflow.

The problem is that unlike front end workflows, where Bubble gives me the choice to select my APIs that I defined within API Connnector, those aren’t an option within the Backend Worklows (they don’t show up)

Is it possible to call an external API within a Backend Workflow?

Yes you can. You will have to define the API as Action.

API Use As

Select from Data or Action to determine how this call will be used in Bubble. Data calls appear in the ‘Get data from an external API’ dropdown menu and Action calls appear in the Plugins section of the Actions dropdown menu.
