Airtable - How to get started with Airtable in Automations

This article gives a basic overview of how to use the Airtable connector in Qlik Application Automation.
The available blocks in the Airtable connector are the following:

  • List Table Records
  • Get Table Record By Id
  • Delete Table Record
  • Update Table Record
  • Create Table Record
  • Replace Table Record
  • List New And Updated Table Records incrementally
  • Create Multiple Table Records
  • Get Table Record By Field

Let's go through a basic use case to retrieve all the records from a table:

1. Create a new automation
2. Search for the Airtable connector using the left menu

To retrieve the "App Id" visit https://airtable.com/api

Click on one of your apps (bases). In my case I will click on Demo and the browser will navigate to the following URL: https://airtable.com/appd3BD8PlHWVY9Xp/api/docs#curl/introduction. You can find the "App Id" in this URL (for me it's "appd3BD8PlHWVY9Xp")

6. Once you've filled in the required fields you can run the automation.
