Transferring data between actions (metadata not working)


I have a lot of separate Apps and would like to separate the Actions into App specific Actions so that I don’t have a single very large Action with a lot of “If” statements for the app specific code .

I would like to set some metadata in the first Action, and then have following separate Actions read that metadata. Setting the metadata works fine in the first Action but the subsequent Actions can’t see the updated metadata. I assume this is because the subsequent Actions run before the metadata is available.

What are my options if I need to have available some data from a previous action ?
