I’m struggling with the Airtable API, I’d like to download the content of one table, all 3k+ records and save them as a csv file using python (I can’t code JS).

My issue is that while trying to connect to Airtable Base and trying to get the first 100 records, I get blocked by a user authentication challenge page and get returned a 403 response saying.

It’s actually referring to this user authentication page: Airtable User Authentication Challenge Page | Airtable Support

Here’s my code:

import requests
import pandas as pd

# Environment Variables
AIRTABLE_BASE_ID = "appxxxx..."
AIRTABLE_TABLE_ID = "tblxxxx..."
AIRTABLE_TABLE_NAME = "Cashflow-Forecast"
AIRTABLE_VIEW_ID = "viwxxxx..."
AIRTABLE_API_KEY = "keyxxxx..."

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

# params = {
# }

r = requests.get(endpoint, params=(), headers=headers)
print(r.status_code, r.text)
# df = pd.DataFrame(r)

Thank you for your pointers & help!
