Troubleshooting and Resolving Data Retrieval Issue in Xano Platform
In this meeting, the State Changers discussed problem-solving for software development using Xano software and the API endpoint for a form webhook. There was a particular issue about retrieving the right data from a question reference ID using Xano's 'find first' function. Part of the issue was getting the name of a variable after identifying the first element of a relevant array.
A notable part of this session was the introduction of a debugging process by using Xano's 'stop and debug' function to inspect the elements in their software, providing more clarity about what data is being handled by the relevant features. Progress was demonstrated as the participant successfully accessed an element called 'text' from a reference, based on insights provided during the meeting. These tools and processes could be applicable to similar software problem-solving tasks in the future.
The meeting was not only about solving a specific issue but also about imparting skills and approaches for future problem-solving. It concluded with a check-in around the table for other possible questions, indicating an ongoing collaborative dialogue. Despite the technical nature, the atmosphere was comfortable and supportive, making it suitable for software developers and those interested in Xano or other similar tools.
