Dear thunkable community,
I am trying to retrieve some data I requested via an API and parse it into a Data Viewer List. For that I followed the official documentation and created a local data source called “ControllerList”. The point why I’m doing this is because I need a key-value mapping of my data. I can’t store the info in a normal list as I would lose assignability for further API queries.
My approach is the following:
And the data source looks like this:
Regarding the API response, I created a variable (type = empty list) and as soon as I send the GET message I will save the response into this variable with a for-each loop. Unfortunately, the app doesn’t want me to get things work. It crashes or the data loads not as expected.
Please note: There is also a normal “List Viewer” where I tried to fill in my response data (with variable “TestList”). But this didn’t work as well.
