Airtable API

Organize anything with Airtable, a modern database created for everyone. Airtable is a fast and flexible way to create tables to keep track of anything, from sales leads to vacation planning to inventory management.

Use the Airtable Connector

Add the airtable connector on your Zenaton dashboard,
enter the credentials and authorize Zenaton to call the airtable API from your workflows.
Then add code snippet and URL path to your workflow.

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");

module.exports = workflow("MyWorkflow", function* () {
const airtable = this.connector(
'airtable', 'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard');

const response = yield airtable.get('path_to_API');
yield airtable.post('path_to_API', {param1: '...'});
});

The Zenaton Engine

We handle the complexity of orchestrating Airtable API calls and related logic in your code.

Out of the Box API Call

Add the connector to your Zenaton workflow and we manage the authentication, oauth1 and oauth2 flow including token refreshing.

Automatic Retries & Alerting

If your Airtable API call fails, it can automatically be retried and you will receive an alert with error details.

Monitoring and Troubleshooting

View the Zenaton dashboard for execution history, scheduled tasks, errors and logs or retry failed Airtable API calls.

Integrate Airtable into your application logic

The Zenaton connector is a pre-configured task for calling the Airtable API inside your workflow with one line of code. Build custom integration logic by adding a workflow directly into your application using the functions in the Zenaton SDK.

// The Zenaton engine orchestrates airtable API calls and related logic via the Zenaton agent. Every step is executed at the right moment on your servers and monitored on Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// airtable authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("ParallelWorkflow", function* () {
  const airtable = this.connector(
    'airtable',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
// execute parallel tasks handled automatically by the Zenaton engine 
  const [a, b] = yield this.run.task(["TaskA"],["TaskB"]);
  if (a > b) {
    const response = yield airtable.get('path_to_API');
  } else {
    yield this.run.task('TaskD');
  }
});

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// airtable authentification on Zenaton

  const airtable = this.connector(
