Can an Airtable App be used as an API to handle incoming requests?

I want to build an app that can handle incoming HTTPS requests from webhooks. Would it be possible to set up an express server in the app so that any requests to my app_url.com/api get processed by my app? The use case is, a webhook sends a request to the app, the app then updates rows within my airtable base.

Hi Taylor, and welcome to the community.

Nope. Airtable does not [presently] host script endpoints and there is no inbound webhook feature. As such, you have to create it somewhere - I typically use Google Apps Script for this because it’s pretty much free and scales pretty well too.

I believe you can create proxy webhook services via Zapier and Integromat.

Thanks! I ended up using Firebase functions to get the job done.
