I am able to get data from the DB on the update code of the plugin, but NOT in the preview.
I saw several plugins and they just display some dummy data which is not a good UX, but I understand it might save time on the microservices requests.
On the Update box I use:
var imageList = properties.figures;
let listCounter = imageList.length();
let arrList = imageList.get(0,listCounter);
And I have no issue.
But If I use the same snippet at the preview it returns null. Apparently I am not able to call the back end from the plugin preview?
Is there any workaround?
