I wish Parabola had an Airtable export feature, but in the meantime, I’m struggling with the code to allow me to create records in Airtable with multiple associated linked records. I got it to work when there is only a single linked record in a field, but I keep receiving a 422 error code saying “invalid record id” whenever there are multiple linked records. The record ids going into {id (1) (concat)} below are a comma separated string (i.e. recXXXXYYYZZZ, recAAAABBBBCCCC). The code I’m using is below. Thanks for any help that you can provide.

  "fields": {
    "Client": ["{id}"],
    "Timesheet Items": ["{id (1) (concat)}"]

Hi @Josh_Cyk - I have a similar base - similar linking fields and, looking at the API doc for this base, I need my fields object to look like this:

  "fields": {
    "Company": [
    "Invoice Items": [

so, on my invoice items field, adding multiple ids, this is an array of ids, with each id quoted.

I’m not sure I understand your variable "{id (1) (concat)}" but if this is a quoted string of ids (as opposed to string of quoted ids) then this might be the problem.

Can you log out this variable and see what its value is?


Thanks, @JonathanBowen! This worked. Needed a string of quoted ids. I’m not sure how to add the quotes to each id in Parabola, so I used a formula field in Airtable to concatenate quotes around the record id.
