Airtable API Integrations

Build and run workflows using the Airtable API. Use 1000s of open source triggers and actions across 500+ apps. Or write custom code to integrate any app or API in seconds.

const Airtable = require('airtable')
const base = new Airtable({apiKey: auths.airtable.api_key}).base(params.base)
Create Records

Try it
List Records

Lists records in a given table.

Update Records

This action accepts an array of update objects. Each of these objects should have two properties: 1) fields, which contains all of your record's cell values by field name, and 2) id, the ID of the record in Airtable you'd like to update. You can include all, some, or none of the field values.

 
Try it
DELETE /{table_name}/{record_id}

Delete a record from the table

 
Try it
GET /{table_name}/{record_id}

Get a record from the table

 
Try it

Public Airtable workflows

Acts as a virtual webhook to update a master airtable table on a pro account from any of 11 separate tables in different free airtable bases which don't allow scripts to run when an record is updated.

 
Try it

Authentication

Airtable uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Airtable account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Airtable APIs in both code and no-code steps.

Airtable uses simple token-based authentication. To generate or manage your API key, visit your account settings.

Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
We love Airtable here at Pipedream. But Airtable lacks one killer feature — webhooks. We took advantage of Airtable’s Slack notifications and built a way to send webhooks to an HTTP endpoint every time a record is created or updated in a base. It takes 10 minutes to setup and it’s free.
Webhooks workaround using Slack
Webhooks workaround using Slack
This has been an open item in the Airtable support community for a few years, see "Webhooks for Records 393" and here 39, & here 28, and we are excited to offer a free solution to the community. Here is the high level solution: Based on the transitive property (A=B and B=C, then A=C), Airtable supports Slack Notifications, and Slack supports webhooks, so Airtable supports webhooks! You just have to know how to set it up correctly. With a simple integration via Pipedream into Slack, all Airtable users can now get near real time notifications of all updated fields and values in Airtable.
Overcoming Airtable Scripting Limitations with Pipedream
Overcoming Airtable Scripting Limitations with Pipedream
How I used Pipedream — Created a workflow having an API endpoint to convert Airtable’s Attachment Image URL to Base64 encode image (to push it to another API). Similarly, there could be a million other use-cases.
