We have multiple APIs connected to our Airtable base. I am trying to debug an issue where an API is changing the status of a record, but I cannot isolate which API is causing the issue. Is there any way to get more granular info besides “you edited via API”?

The API does not know which service called it. It only knows the API key that was used to call it.

You could try matching of the modified time in Airtable with the logs of the different services you use.

Or you could try changing out the API key to that of a different Airtable user. Of course this might mean that you need to pay for another user.

Good idea re matching the modified time.

Thanks for all your help in this community. Your responses to others’ posts in here have quietly helped me several times :pray:
