Hi, I have developed chatbots for different channels such as WhatsApp, Telegram, etc. I am currently using Airtable REST API to fetch the text field and attachment URLs and send them to Users as text messages and media files, respectively.

The pieces of information and URLs are fetched at the time of the request i.e. When the user initiates the chatbot.

Will the new change affect my chatbot workflow since I am directly fetching the URL every time the user requests the bot? Also, I read and I quote:

Using Airtable as a CDN has been and continues to be discouraged in line with this change

How can I avoid this?

Any help or advice is appreciated

No, the change should not affect you if you are always querying to get the newest URL, and then downloading the attachment from that URL within 2 hours.

Yes, The URL is fetched when the user requests it and sent immediately without any delay. Thank you for your reply
