Hi. I have a standard form that is configured to create an entry in another form via API. I am trying to find a way to redirect a user to a view for the second form (parent) based on the JSON entry_key value provided in the API response from the first API call. I have tried accomplishing this using the below php code to no avail.
add_action( 'frmapi_post_response', 'frm_save_api_response', 10, 3 );
function frm_save_api_response( $response, $entry, $form_action ) {
$body = json_decode($response['body'], true);
$returned_key = $body['item_key'];
if ( $body['form_id'] == 2) {
) );
  Below is the body of the API response I receive from the first API call. In this case, I want to use the response to redirect a user to the view at  
"body": "
"id": "198", "item_key": "4szaj", "name": "test 1234", "meta":
"form": "3", "i197":
"9j91t": "test", "yg6jl": "2", "x8oih": "test", "9jauh": "4", "o3ajo": "test adsads", "wwko0": "2", "9ou8h": "", "wlpnn": "1", "ekufm": "", "hqbs8": "2.8", "7c3w4": "3.2", "jtg9i": "3.6", "nk7dt": "", "kbx01": "", "yl3nl": "", "wppv4": ""}
"9j91t":["test"],"yg6jl":["2"],"x8oih":["test"],"9jauh":["4"],"o3ajo":["test adsads"],"wwko0":["2"],"9ou8h":[""],"wlpnn":["1"],"ekufm":[""],"hqbs8":["2.8"],"7c3w4":["3.2"],"jtg9i":["3.6"],"nk7dt":[""],"kbx01":[""],"yl3nl":[""],"wppv4":[""]
"form_id": "2", "post_id": "0", "user_id": "1", "parent_item_id": "0", "is_draft": "0", "updated_by": "1", "created_at": "2022-10-06 02:07:05", "updated_at": "2022-10-06 02:07:05"}", "response":
"code":200,"message": "OK"

You’re missing something in the action callback. When using the PHP header() function it’s mandatory that you use either the exit() or the die() function immediately after the header redirection to stop script execution and avoid any undesired results.

Thanks for your assistance! I was able to get this working by adding the exit() function immediately after the header() function, as suggested.
