Airtable Query Help

The API Key is located in the Airtable User Account. Click on the User Image in the top right, and click on Account. API Key is located in the Overview section under API. For first time, click Generate API key or use the personal API key that’s been generated. The API Key and Airtable API link to get the Base ID is highlighted in the image below.

To get the Base ID, press the Airtable API above where the API Key is found. Once pressed, a new tab will open. The Airtable API for “TABLE NAME” will be displayed at the top. To change which table or data-set, press the down arrow. To find the Base ID, scroll down on the right side. The Base ID is highlighted in the “Example Using Bearer Token Example”.

Once the Airtable Connector has been created, navigate to interactions to begin creating new interactions using the new connector.

  • Drag and Drop the Airtable connector into the flow diagram area
  • Connect the Start component to Airtable, and Airtable to Response
  • Table is the name of the table tab in the airtable table
  • Fields are the columns. To add fields, type the name of the column and hit the Comma Key on the keyboard. This will create a boxed item with the name and an ‘x’ to be able to remove it from the list. Add as many fields as may be useful for this interaction response.
    • Add Category
    • Add brand_description
  • View should be the Grid view.
  • Filter on a particular value. Ex.) Category = “BRANDY” should return all records with category matching “BRANDY” and the records brand_description

In the Response description, type:

{{connectors.c1.first.brand_description}} {{connectors.c1.first.Category}}

Those were the two fields that were wanted to be returned. To test, in the top left corner press Test. On the right hand side, click the +. Name the name to represent what will be tested, ex.) Category and Brand Description. In the Config textarea, type {}. Save. To test, press the lightning bolt to the left of the name of the test. The test will run and then display what was written within the handlebars, found above.
