Hey there!

I am very new to Airtable. I wanted to connect PowerAutomate to Airtable. I want to use Airtable as alternative to Google Sheets. I created a token in the settings, used the table and base ID (pulled it out of the link like described in the Airtable Documentary) to configure the PowerAutomate step. Then I got a connection prompt asking for the API and a Name. I entered the token I created in and then, tested the flow. Everytime I did that I got the Error: "Authentication required". I thought maybe its because airtable wants to remove API's completely but I am pretty sure I am just doing something simple totally wrong. How do I have to do it right?


Best Regards

hey @renel its hard to know what the issue could be without having some visuals.  Your probably don't want to share you base id and table id publicly here though.  If you'd like you can book a quick 10 min call with me and I can take a look. 

Hello Jake, I did not use any visuals since there is nothing to visualize. I just tried to connect via the "create record" step in PowerAutomate. Then I get "authentication failed no matter what I do.


book a 10 min call with me here and we can take a look at it together.  I'm sure we can figure it out.
