Using Airtable with iOS Shortcuts


#1

Here there,

Been using Airtable for a little while now, but now I am trying to automate some features. Basically what I am trying to do is be able to call a record from a base using the iOS app Shortcuts (formerly known as Workflow) and update that record. I know I need to point the shortcut towards the records endpoint, the issue is that I have no idea how to find the record endpoint short of opening the iOS Airtable app and copy the record ID and append that as a variable to the URL, but this defeats the purpose of automation.

So right now I have a URL action set to point to my base, then I use Get Contents of URL action to get to Airtable API, then I use a Get Dictionary Value to get the records, what would be the next step to be able to find or query the record ID?

Thanks
