Nintex Form - Web Request Action - Dynamic Population

Hello Community,


I have Web Request Actions on my Nintex Form and I would like to get them to populate based on when choices are made.



1) User picks an option from a Drop Down

2) Drop Down sets a Variable Item ID to a specific ID

3) Web Request then pulls specific data needed out of the Item in the List based on the Item ID variable


I'm doing it  this way because the user is filling out a from for Travel Authorization and is only choosing certain values. Those using look-ups doesn't work due to the amount of filtering I need to do based on what the user chooses from drop down. And to have them pick the filters column after column will make it complicated for them due to the way the lists where created with the data, and the amount of filters that would need to be applied just to get down to the values that would be needed, where with the Web Request i can go straight to the value and pull it. But i want to make the Web Control more dynamic so that instead of populating the values right away when the form gets created it will pull the value based on the user choice.


Currently my URL service is like this : URL/_vti_bin/ListData.svc/<ListName><ID>  with ID hard coded in

Would like and it to be dynamic on user choice : URL/_vti_bin/ListData.svc/<ListName><Variable>  where Variable = ID# based on user choice
