Use response from third party API?

I have an automation that creates a polly in Slack by posting to the polly API when a new Jira issue of a particular type is created.

When the POST call succeeds, the response has valuable data in the payload. I'd like to add that data (or some parts of it) as a comment to the issue whose creation triggered the automation.

Is it possible to process a response in this fashion using the built-in features of the automation suite?

It could, does the response have a reference to the automation that created the post? If not, does the response have a reference to the issue that created the post? If the response has a reference to the automation you can delay the automation until you get the response back and then use {{webResponse.body} to extract the information that you want to add in the comment.
