Custom forms: new field type External Lookup - Distinguish between option and value


Level 6


Description - I am totally thrilled about the new feature of being able to add external lookup fields to custom forms to call external APIs.
I would love to be able to differ between the shown option, which comes from one JSON path (like $.data[*].name) and the value which is finally saved (like from $.data[*].id) as this is also possible using general dropdown fields.

Why is this feature important to you - There often is a difference between the shown option and the value in behind on dropdown fields.

How would you like the feature to work - similar to general dropdown fields

Current Behaviour - only one JSON path possible
