am trying to integrate the pexels api, which seems fairly easy. https://www.pexels.com/api/
Intended outcome is that the user searches for an image and then sees a list of the photos found. He can then choose one which saves this image url into some user property.
My questions is: Would I use the external collection or the custom action ?
Using the external collection seems to be only possible when I already know the search term, as I have to hard enter it into the query parameter.
Using the custom action seems to to return only the first item of the search results.
Update: Ok I just realized that I can use a query parameter as a filter in external collection… but how would I save the external collection without this one parameter then?
