1. How can I call a restful service from a Skuid page to do a lookup in Salesforce and return a JSON result?
2. If step 1 is possible, can I populate a control on the Skuid page with the JSON results?

Hi, Can you provide a little more detail on what you mean by "do a lookup in Salesforce" ?

Currently Skuid's autocomplete/lookup does not retain the value searched on if no matches found in order to create a new record. What I'm thinking of doing is to provide that functionality via javascript and should match(s) be found, populate a control with a JSON result.  Is this possible?
