I'm working on my graduation project, using Airtable as an API. In the API documentation, specifically in the "create records" section, I'm having an issue. When I try to copy the 'YOUR_SECRET_API_TOKEN' for authentication, it stays as plain text and doesn't convert into the expected key format.

Has anyone else run into this problem? Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks for your help!

Use a personal access token, not an API key. https://airtable.com/create/tokens

Out of curiosity, where are you graduating from?
