I have shared an interface (hence a base) with read only external collaborators.
Everything is working fine, but I would like to deny permission to these collaborators to enter the base itself, but i cannot find out how to invalidate the “Go to base option”.

Can anyone help me on that matter.

That is not yet a possibility. Interfaces are currently only designed for internal collaborators, not external collaborators.

Thank you
That’s very clear

Sharing interface only with extended sharing permissions would be extremely helpful

I don’t work for Airtable. I am an Airtable user just like you, and I am also an independent Airtable consultant. You can contact to let them know how you feel.

I just ran into this very issue after spending a long time creating an Interface. I was honestly flabbergasted when I couldn’t just get a read-only share link and instead had to give users access to data they should never have access to. As a new user of Airtable I admit I don’t fully understand the use of Airtable but this has just left me so confused and disappointed.

It would be great if interfaces could be shared in exactly the same way as the “Share view” option works where there is a read-only URL that can be copied and emailed and the only thing they can see is the content within the shared interface. Without the ability to restrict read-only, my use case for Interfaces is completely pointless. I have an HR database that contains peoples’ personal and payroll information. I want them to see their own interface (containing their own data) but not be able to see everybody else’s info.

That is on the roadmap for 2022.

Any insight when in 2022 this will be available? Same as another user mentioned above, I spent ages creating an interface without realizing it would grant access to the full DB. Don’t want to recreate the wheel/start from scratch on this one.

This is exactly what we need as well.
We want to be able to share an interface with someone without giving them access to all the data in the base.

This seems to be one of the best use cases for Interface feature. Since interface can show specific data from a base, we should be able to share that filtered data with different people. This way we can have a solid comprehensive base with several interfaces created on top of it that show and present different data with different people.
