Using the Airtable API Wizard

The Airtable API Wizard automatically creates GET requests from an Airtable base to display data in your app.

  9. The Wizard creates two requests per table: one for the list page and one for the detail page. Therefore, there are 2 tables in my Airtable, but 4 requests have been created. All the data records from the requests are also selected.
  10. 💡

    The Advanced view takes you to the "Custom API" view, where you can configure the requests further (like adding parameters).
