Is it possible to link an API content entry partially with Bubble db entry?

I use an external CMS to manage my content and I display it in bubble with an API. However, for a number of reasons, I would like to store certain fields associated with the entries on Bubble. For instance, let’s say I have a photo entry (stored on the CMS along with other details related to the image) that users can download, I’d like to be able to save the number of downloads the entry has in the Bubble db rather than the CMS.

Is that possible? if so, what would be the best way to do this?

You can make a log in Bubble consisting of id which relates to picture in CMS and user id, and then count by picture id when you need the number of downloads. Or something more elementary, like having a counter by each picture id. You would probably have a workflow for this ‘accounting’.

Yes, assume this is Contentful. So you can store the Sys.Id of the Asset and keep a counter.
