  1. Select this integration
  2. Configure the New Records trigger
    1. Connect your Airtable account
    2. Configure timer
    3. Configure baseId
    4. Configure tableId
  3. Configure the Send any HTTP Request action
    1. Connect your HTTP / Webhook account
    2. Configure HTTP Request Configuration
  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  6. Turn on the trigger

Details

This integration uses pre-built, open source components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Trigger

Description:Emit an event for each new record in a table
Version:0.0.5

Trigger Code

const moment = require("moment");
const axios = require("axios");

const common = require("../common");

module.exports = {
  ...common,

    const lastTimestamp = this.db.get("lastTimestamp");
    config.params.filterByFormula = `CREATED_TIME() > "${lastTimestamp}"`;

    const { data } = await axios(config);

    if (!data.records.length) {
      console.log("No new records.");

        summary: JSON.stringify(record.fields),
        id: record.id,
      });

        maxTimestamp = record.createdTime;
      }

    console.log(`Emitted ${recordCount} new records(s).`);
    this.db.set("lastTimestamp", maxTimestamp);
  },
};

Trigger Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI and CLI.

Trigger 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.

Stop writing boilerplate code, struggling with authentication and managing infrastructure. Start connecting APIs with code-level control when you need it — and no code when you don't.
