Hello there!

I'm going to use Airtable API to get records and save into mine site. These records will be updated on daily, weekly or even monthly basis inside the Airtable, so using CRON on the server it not best solution. Our idea was to create some trigger URL (maybe WP REST API route) on our site. Is there any reason that Airtable can block this request using "Run a script action" for XMLHttpRequest? Or there is another better way to do this?

To integrate Airtable with Wordpress, I would check out Make’s Wordpress integrations and automations.

There is a small learning curve with Make, which is why I created this basic navigation video to help. I also provide the links to a few other Make training resources there as well..

p.s. If you have a budget for your project and you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant to help you with any of this, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consulting — ScottWorld

Hi @ScottWorld, thank for sharing this, but we not really have a budget to involve 3rd party solutions. We are gonna make simple script to take data from Airtable, but the issue here to avoid CRON jobs and trigger this script using "Run a script action" provided by Airtable. So my original question is it possible or Airtable has some limitatons for such actions. Or there any better built in solution in the Airtable

I don’t know scripting, so I can’t help you there. I’m sure you could do it, but note that Airtable has a limitation that scripts must finish running in 30 seconds or less.
