Get Airtable Records

Updated 2 months ago by Karan

Introduction

Byteline provides an easy-to-use Get Airtable Records task to fetch Airtable data. A simple and user-friendly interface allows you to retrieve Airtable records and will return all the data from your Airtable table in seconds.

Airtable requires pagination to fetch more than 100 records, so Byteline internally performs pagination so that users on our platform don't have to. For example, if your Airtable table has 300 records, we will fetch all 300 just with a minimal task configuration.

Configure Airtable API Key

Before you start using the Get Airtable node, you need to configure the API key to access your Airtable account from Byteline.

Click on the Connection from the navigation bar on the top of the Byteline design flow console, and then select Airtable from the left panel. You will see the below screen.
