How can I get the annotations for a Feedly entry via the Feedly integration?

I am building a scenario where I take entries from a particular board in Feedly and then pass this over to OpenAI to create a nice text that summarises the post. This works really well by integrating the Feedly “Watch Articles” trigger and the OpenAI “Create a completion” action.

I would now also like to include any notes (annotations) to the Feedly entry in my OpenAI prompt, so that it can return a more personalised response.

According to the Feedly documentation of the Annotations API, this should be returned with the entry response. This is however not being passed on by the Feedly trigger.

I have tried calling the Feedly API directly (there is a Feedly action for that) but only get empty responses (with status 200) back when I query with the entryId that was previously provided by the Feedly trigger.

The annotations are definitely there, because when I build this in Zapier I can access them. I just don’t want this to be the only reason why I would need to switch. :wink:

Does anyone have any idea how I might achieve this?

So I have managed to get this to work using the http module to query the Feedly entries api.

It appears that the Feedly module isn’t sending the authorization token in the header by default. This therefore requires me do my own authorisation that is separate from the connection that the Feedly module already created. So not really ideal, as I will now have to handle token refresh etc. myself.

At least it works for the moment.
