Is there a way to iterate through list via smart value

Is there a way to iterate through list which I get from a Webrequest?


Use Case:

I get a list from a webrequest which I make via Automation. And I want to save every single value in different Customdields, Is there a way to do it?

Hi @Damla Naz Yilmaz 

No; I do not believe there is a generic iterator/looping structure in automation rules yet.  Here is one suggestion to add that feature:

If you know the list of custom fields, you could include each one as an edit in the rule, and then repeatedly parse the response message with text functions and regular expressions.

A more risky alternative would be to create a "queue" field, and use a second rule which repeatedly triggers itself to consume the values, and halts when the field becomes empty.  Given automation rules already have observable race-track timing issues (sometimes) I would strongly advise against that...and, there is no guarantee that the built-in runaway prevention wouldn't halt the rule defensively.

Best regards,
