Confused On Custom Actions

Can I make a custom action lookup data from an API and display it on the page when it loads?

For simplicity sake, let’s say I have an api that displays the current status of fire danger:

“firedanger”: “No warnings for now”

When you open the page, I want it to look up the current fire danger and display it to the user. The

When I do this simple test, it does not give me the option to show that data.

This would best done through external collection rather than a custom action as custom actions would require the user performing an action first.

Whereas with external collections you could just add the query parameter for their zipcode and display the results where you need.
