I’m creating an automation to run when a record is updated like this:

"airtable

In the script, how can I get the record that was updated or its ID? So I can target only it. The example I’ve found select all records:

// Update all the records
let result = await table.selectRecordsAsync();
for (let record of result.records) {
    console.log(record)
}

You can get the record id of the triggering record and any of its field values as input variables using the automations version of input.config. There is a link to an example in the automations script editor.

Is there a way to update the record from my script, after I’ve done the processing? I’m trying something like this:

Updated: I think I found the solution from the error message. I can pass in a recordId; I thought it had to be record, which I didn’t have.

await table.updateRecordAsync(config.recordId, {
   theProp: theNewData,
});

Hello Isle,

I am struggling with exact same problem. Can you explain a little bit more how did you come up with a solution? I am new to JS and I was not able to make this line of code work.

Thank you
