Search by string similarity or detect similarity [ help ]

Hi :slight_smile: I hope you’re doing as fine as you can.

I am struggling today with something that seems complex to achieve within Bubble.
I am creating a multi-account detector based on different data, and I would like to check whether another user is registered with something similar that the current user’s email.

For instance, if my current input is “vnihoul77@gmail.com” and if my database contains “vnihoul27@gnail.com”, I would like to trigger an action.
And I need this to be achieved in the backend, potentially on a big database.

I know there’s a way to achieve this using code, and then get a dictionary with the different matches and the similarity percentage, but in Bubble …? :confused:

Any ideas? Maybe @J805 or @johnny ?

Cheers :beer:

Maybe you can try an API like this one?

This is what I would try.

Hope that helps! :blush:
