Retub Data from API

Hi, hopefully should be an easy one.

I currently have an API call which pulls tweets from the ‘Search Tweets’ twitter API and enters them into my database as separate rows. that works fine.

However i have discovered that i need access to meta data to process the next call that sits above this data level. So ideally i want to make one single GET call for all the data and then process each component in that call.

I thought I was on the right track with using ‘Return Data from API’ to return the whole object and then in later steps of my workflow access each component by using the ‘result of step 1…’ functionality but this option doesn’t appear in my subsequent actions.

Is there a better way to approach this? Also what is the use case for ‘Return Data from API’? i couldn’t seem to access the data it returned in any of my workflow steps , is it just for frontend use?
