How to get "Request Data" passed to plugin server action

Hi All,

I need to receive a POST request in Bubble, and use the parameters from the request body to generate/validate a signature to authenticate the request.

I decided to create a backend workflow that calls a plugin server action. I had no problem setting up the workflow, and the plugin, but I’m having issues getting the “Request Data” on the plugin side.

Here are some details :

It seems the data is being passed, but I can’t access it in the plugin action code function.

Can you please help me with this ? How can I extract the parameters keys and values?

I also don’t understand why my parameters are getting “_wf_” added to the key name.

Looking forward to your help. Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

What happens if you bring it into the plug-in as Type text (instead of ‘any thing’)?

Thanks @exception-rambler for taking the time to answer me.
I have tried type “Text” first, and only adventured in “any thing” after reading some stuff in the forums …

The issue with the “Text” type dynamic field in a plugin, is that it gives an error when trying to pass the “Request Data” using that field :

In this particular case I can’t create each parameter from “Request Data” as a separate text field (I will do it, although they are a lot), because the parameters in the “Request Data” are not always equal, they are dynamic, and I need to calculate the signature based only on the parameters (keys and values) that were passed.

So, basically my question is how to pass the “Request Data” to the plugin to work with the keys and values to calculate the signature?

I though this should be simple, because the “Request Data” shows as JSON, at least when you look at it in the “show raw data” in the “API workflow Request Data”…

Would appreciate any other ideas you may have.


Anyone please ?

Did you ever figure this out? I’m running into the exact same issue.

At that time I think it was not possible to pass the entire Request Data and get it on the plugin action … Don’t know if it’s possible now … What I ended up doing was to pass separately each parameter from Request Data and then have a separate field for each in the Plugin Action.
It’s not dynamic as I wanted, but I was able to make the parameters constant on the request side and work with it …
I received a more technical answer from a Bubble engineer but my knowledge of Bubble was not that high and I might not have understood some of the details, but if you share an email I can search and forward it to you.

Running into the same issue and use case as afonseca, any update on this would be awesome!
