How to easily receive data from an External API and save to the Bubble database?

Hello everyone,

I am trying to run an API workflow to save the data I am receiving from an external API (shopify) , to the Bubble database.

In the frontend, I can easily specify that I want to run an API workflow on a list of “products” - a datatype that Shopify is sending me.

However, when I want to receive the parameter in the backend API workflow, there is no option to select the “Type” of the parameter (I want the Type to be the “products” which shopify is sending it to me).

Does anyone know any workaround to this? Moreover, does anyone know a better method to receive data from an external API and save it to the bubble database?

Much appreciated
