Option Sets and Bubble API


I would just like to ask if I can write the value of an option set directly as a text into a bubble database?

For Example:
the option set “hello” contains 2 values:


in the database I am using the optionset “hello” in my datatype “greeting”:


can I just set the value of “sendoff” to “bai” Directly through the Bubble API?

Edit: Formatting

Hey @drplanecraft

The option within an Option Set is not exactly a text per say. Its display is a text.

If I understand correctly you’re receiving the value “bai” via API and you want to store that value in the “sendoff” field in a Thing.

What you can do in your workflow is the following:

  1. Make changes to Thing → sendoff = Get an option

  2. Choose the Option Set (in your case, “hello”) and select “All options”

  3. Add a filter and look for the option that matches the text received via API. The end result should look something like All hello:filtered → This hello’s Display is [text received]

Let me know if that helps
