I’m not sure whether this is an existing bug I’m calling out or a feature request. In any case, I find the current behavior of the API explorer in 8base quite cumbersome. Specifically, the way your most recent query is not persisted and instead replaced with the commented out welcome message when you navigate away and then return to the API explorer.
I find this quite odd, especially since I’ve found it inconsistent with the behavior of the “variables” panel which does seem to be persisted. I would love to see the query section persisted so I don’t have to remove the commented welcome message each time. +1 for just leaving the WIP query in place to return to.
