I want to offer my users an update form for various info. I need to get that info via a REST call. It is not part of the WP database and never will be.  Is this possible with FF Pro?

That's actually the reverse of what I need - in this instance. I want to hit a REST API, get some info and populate a FormForm with some of that data. Later, if the user makes changes, ill use the formidable API to post the data back.

You need custom code to do that. You can use the WordPress HTTP API to make remote API calls using PHP curl. The request API is a curl wrapper.

Thanks, that looks like a workable option.
