Integromat-Airtable integration: Create record with synced linked record -- record id not found

This question also exists in Integromat-Airtable integration: Create record with synced linked record -- record id not found - Stack Overflow

I’ve created a scenario where a customer submits an order form jotform. In airtable, I have an “Order Line Item” table in my “Sales” base that links to a record from the “Inventory” table from the “Inventory” base. This linked record column is called “Inventory ID”. It also has a linked record to my “Order” table in the “Sales” base.

In integromat, I have a “Create Record” airbase tool. When I manually put in the Order ID, that creates the new order line item record no problem. But when I manually put in the Inventory ID record, it says it doesn’t exist. And, I’ve tried both the POST API and the Create Record tool.

Is this a bug in the airtable API?

Someone in the integromat facebook community …

FB Person: As I understand how airtable record ID works, synced inventory ID (from another base) is different from that base’s recordID. try to create a recordID formula field and use that instead as reference?

Wichie Artu: You’re a godsend! The Inventory ID in the Sales base is DIFFERENT from the Inventory ID in the Inventory base. I did a formula in the Sales base to get that record id, and used that.

Nice! Very subtle but very important distinction!
