Not sure if this is feasible, but I would really like to have a dashboard that has an action filter to pull an image from out company servers based on the id in view.
The problem is that the way this image is accessed is through an API request with a JSON response.
The response is pretty simple and extracting the image url would be straightforward. However, I am unsure whether this 2 tiered URL action is feasible... effectively, the dashboard would need to load one URL, parse the response, then load a second URL which would return the picture..
Is this possible? Is there something in place to handle JSON responses like this?
Thanks in advance!
I may have come up with a potential solution, but maybe someone can let me know if it would work..
Perhaps I could use TabPy to run a short script to call the API and read the response, which would then output the image url as a string... which I could then use as the input to my URL Action???
