Airtable setup

You need an API key, Base ID and table name from Airtable to use the Airtable connector in Cyclr:

  • To get the API key, go to the Airtable account page and copy of the API key from the API section.
  • To get the Base ID, go to the API section in Airtable and select the table base you want to use. Copy the BaseID from the Introduction section.
  • The table name is the name of the table in the base (not the name of the base).

Cyclr account setup

Cyclr asks you for the below values when you install the connector into an account:

Value Description
API key Your Airtable API key.
BaseID The BaseID of the base you want Cyclr to use.
Table name The name of the table you want Cyclr to use.

You can test the connector in one of your Cyclr accounts if you call a method to confirm it can return some data.

Additional information

Airtable custom objects

The Airtable connector uses Cyclr custom objects to make methods dynamic based on module names. Each custom object name requires:

  • The BaseID of the table that you want to work with.
  • The table name of the table you want to interact with.

Note: The BaseID and table name can be different for each client account.

Set up a custom object

If you set up a custom object, you create a new method category with the parameters you enter. To set up a custom object:

  1. Go to the Airtable connector Settings page:
    • For template connectors, go to Templates > Template Connectors > Airtable > Edit Connector.
    • For connectors within a cycle, go to the Template Builder > Application Connectors > Airtable > Settings.
  2. Under the Methods and Fields heading, expand the Records (Custom Object) category.
  3. Select the red Copy this Category to create a Custom Object Category icon.
  4. Enter {BaseID}.{table name} into the Specify object name field. For example, appTCumMdMOC1Zcqz.TestTable.
  5. Select Copy.
