Referencing cursor value in incremental syncs for low-code connector

Summary

When building a low-code connector using the UI with cursor paged pagination for incremental syncs, how can you reference the cursor value for future syncs? The documentation mentions filtering according to a cursor field, but it seems to expect a datetime value rather than a string.


Question

I’m building a low-code connector using the UI. The API in question doesn’t use datetime to perform incremental syncs, but rather cursor paged pagination to continue from where you left off.

Looking at the docs for cursor paged pagination, it doesn’t appear to store this value for future syncs. Is there a way I can reference this value in incremental syncs? I see <Incremental Syncs | Airbyte Documentation according to Cursor Field>, but this appears to be a datetime value, no a string.
