Passing a parameter for data source (external API call)

I am trying to create a simple web app that

  • receives “instance id” as a URL parameter
  • uses external REST API to retrieve a data record for that instance ID
  • shows the data in the form, allows user to edit it
  • saves the changes using REST API

I have defined the GET method using API connector and it works (gets initialized).

I can now define a group and the fields get populated with the values for the instance ID I have “hardcoded” in API connector. What I cannot figure out is how to pass the value of “instance ID” parameter from the form to the API call :frowning:

Solved! IIn API connector the API parameters should not have “private” checkbox on - this basically makes them a hard-coded constant
