How are External APIs called in Adalo

Hi all, when API calls are made on Adalo, do they go through Adalo first (wherever their hosted servers are) and then to the respective service? Or does the API call go straight to the respective service?

i.e. is it sequence 1 or 2:

  1. API call made → adalo servers → respective service → adalo servers → my app receives the data
  2. API call made → respective service → my app receives the data

Hi @Joey,

Both Custom actions and External collections go through Adalo servers. So it’s sequence 1.

Best regards, Victor.
