Example - read and modify JSON to send to another API

Let's first understand the workflow using this flowchart -

this is an imaginary scenariothis is an imaginary scenario

this is an imaginary scenario

This is a simple 2 step process, We first get the JSON data from an API, then modify it and post it to another API. The retry block here is default.
