I received a request to pull in data from another location (intranet specifically) and use that to update content within the site in a few places:
- A sorting method to filter a list (front end)
- A TV listbox (multi select) (back end)
Currently, this is a manually created & updated list using MIGX in the back end. Ideally, I’d like to make sure that list is updated regularly from the external source. Then, I’d like to pull them in to individual resources from an external source too.
For example: Say I have 500 people who list what schools they’ve graduated from in their biographies. Rather than manually keeping this ever-changing list updated manually, I’d like to pull this from another source (via a feed or something) to keep our main site synced with our intranet. Then, i’d smilarly pull into each person’s resource page that list of schools they specifically attended.
If this is possible, what would be the best way to go about this?
