Convert Text To Number

Assuming you have tried to receive the number as a text (I don’t think it works, but it might), here’s a trick that should work.

You can use the incoming Triggre WebAPI, since it allows for numbers as texts. See How to create an incoming Web API | Triggre Knowledge Base for the supported formats.

Solution steps:

  1. Receice the number as a text from the 3rd party API.
  2. Call your own WebAPI which has as input a number, but send it the text you received. Out put the number (you will need to put an action in between, though it doesn’t need to do anything).
  3. You now have the text converted to a number.

I haven’t tested this; so there’s a bit of disclaimer on it. However, this is the documented behavior and I personally checked these docs with the developer who built this feature :blush:
