I am new to Salesforce development (apologies in advance for not knowing all the Salesforce jargon) and I am trying to build a lightning component that will read fields from a record, add the values as arguments to a URL for use in calling a custom API and then write the response from the API call back to the record in a specific field.
Is there a way to use Force:editRecord (or a similar lightning function) to take the HTTP response (String) and add it to a specific field in the record?
Any info would be greatly appreciated. I would be more than happy if you could just point me in the right direction.
Many thanks, Vince
P.S. Up until now I've managed to stay clear of Apex but I am willing to take the time to learn how to use it if there is no other way to do this
