Update Adalo Records

Byteline provides an easy-to-use Adalo - Update Records node to manage content. A simple and user-friendly interface enables you to create, design, and update Adalo records without touching a line of code.

Create

Create a flow design by including Web Scraper and Update Adalo Records items. For more details, you can check How to create your first flow design.

How Adalo Update Records node works

This node intelligently figures out whether to update content to the Adalo or not. It first retrieves content using an API call then compares the unique columns of the Adalo with the data being processed. If the content already matches, it will update the records. But if the content does not exist, then it will create new records in your Adalo object.

Get API key

Adalo API key is necessary to establish a connection with Byteline.

Step 1: Log in to your Adalo account using credentials and click on Settings.

Step 2: Click on the App Access.

Step 3: Click on the eye icon to get the API key.

Configure Adalo API KEY

Before you start using the Adalo - Update Records, you need to configure the API key to access your Adalo account from Byteline.

Step 1: Click on the edit button of the Adalo node and hit on the Configure it now to configure your API key.

Step 2: Select the API Key and click on the Save button.

Configure the Node

Step 1: Tap on the edit button of the Adalo node to open the Adalo configuration dialog.

Once you click on the edit button, the dialog box will open.

Step 2: Go to your Adalo account, and on the table, click on the ellipsis followed by API documentation from the drop-down menu.

Note: Users are required to keep at least one record in the table so that it can auto-populate your Adalo columns. Adalo doesn’t have any meta API, so there is no way to get column data unless you have at least one row in the table.

Step 3: Fill in the App id by copy-pasting from the Endpoint.

Step 4: Fill in the Collection id by copy-pasting from the Endpoint.

Configure Loop Over

Tick the loop over checkbox and select the array you want to iterate over.

For instance, when we select the web_scraper_1 here for loop over, all the retrieved records get updated as per the Adalo node fields.

Configure the Mapping of the Adalo

Click on the selector button and enter values in the property text field for mapping the data. You can choose several fields as required.

Note: Byteline populates the Field Names for which data needs to be configured. If any field is missing, you can add it using the + button.

Users can hover the cursor over Symbol to select it as the primary field to match data.
