Storing return API data in multiple fields

HI, I feel like I’ve seen a post like this before but cant locate it right now.

Is anyone able to advise if the below Create a New Thing action triggers one API call to Test API Call or 2?

Probably 2…better to have the API call as an action prior to this step and then reference the result of previous step to get the data from the call and into the DB

Hey @boston85719 - agreed and started looking into this, but not sure how? What am I missing?

When setting up your API calls in the API Connector there is an option for ‘data’ or ‘action’ contained in a dropdown with default value set to ‘data’. Choose ‘action’ so it will be available as a workflow action.

Aaargh. Thank you. Had forgotten about that…
