When trying to call the Airtable API using python in either vs code or straight from my browser using google colab, I get stuck on the user auth challenge page.

I use the request library in python to do a simple get request, see my code below. Am I missing something? I can’t write JS which is why I chose to use python instead, my goal is simply to download the table content to then upload it in another tool to have a proper BI dashboard.

I also tried using Postman and got the same 403 result.

import requests
import pandas as pd

AIRTABLE_BASE_ID  = "appxxxxx..."
AIRTABLE_TABLE_ID = "tblxxxxx..."
AIRTABLE_VIEW_ID  = "viwxxxxx..."
AIRTABLE_API_KEY  = "keyxxxxx..."

headers = {"Authorization": "Bearer " + AIRTABLE_API_KEY}

r = requests.get(endpoint, headers=headers)

Response code: 403
