How to get hold of a String as result of an API call

I use Googles APIs and I get the return data by setting it up in:

All works fine.

I have another API call where I only get at String as a result. I don’t understand how to get hold of that string. There no button like the one above:

I changed the Use as to Data to get the data into a Group. But it does not appear in the list. But my Google API calls do. What am I missing?

As the API call is defined as returning Text, try Type of content = text.
Then in Data source use Get data from external API.

If you set the type as JSON, the “Modify call types” button is visible on the API call.

Worked like a charm! Thx @mishav
