Airtable connector

The Airtable REST API connector is used for data extracted from an Airtable base, using their REST API.

Creation

  1. Find your Airtable API URL from :
  • your workspace : Help > API documentation > [your base] > Authentication
  • your base : Choose your table then go in Help > API documentation > Authentication
  1. Check the show API key checkbox and copy the EXAMPLE USING QUERY PARAMETER without the curl, this is your API URL. (e.g. https://api.airtable.com/v0/base_id/table_name?api_key=api_key)
  2. Enter the URL to the layer in the Enter a URL area, when creating a new dataset.
  3. Press Enter, or click the + button.

Note

In the example https://api.airtable.com/v0/base_id/table_name?api_key=api_key the base_id field stands for the ID of your Airtable database. The table_name field stands for the name of the table to import from the database in unicode.
