Hi everyone,

I use Zapier to run a large amount of automations in my Airtable bases. It looks like nothing is working anymore and the reason I’m thinking is because it is listing Airtable as ‘Deprecated’. The only way I can reconnect the zaps is to literally redo them from scratch with a new connection to Airtable. Does anyone have any idea what’s going on here?

Also, does anyone have any guidance on how to batch the updated airtable into my existing zaps? I don’t want to have to redo every single zap as I have dozens and redoing them seems to be fastest way to get something wrong.

Help would be appreciated!

Hi everyone,

We worked with Zapier to learn more about this issue. The migration to the new version of the Airtable connection should be 100% for all Zapier customers. The disappearing Airtable connection was a temporary symptom of the migration, but users’ Zaps should be back to normal and things should be functioning as expected.

If you’re still experiencing any issues please let me know so our teams can troubleshoot.

No tips from me, but all of my airtable zaps are broken as well… so weird!

I’m having the same issue! This has currently broken about 20 automations we use to manage purchases :confused: so we’re currently flying blind.

I also discovered that my connection to Airtable in Zapier had disappeared. When I tried re-adding it there are now 2 different options for Airtable:

  1. Airtable
  2. Airtable Legacy

I re-added airtable successfuly, but none of my zaps recognize that connection. When I tried to add an Airtable Legacy Connection I got this Error:
AirtableDevAPI could not be found

Either Airtable or Zapier has severed all connection between Airtable Legacy Connections and Airtable itself, rendering all connections broken. Very very bad way to start the morning.

Good to hear I am not alone, but this really is a horrible way to start Monday off!

If someone from the Airtable team could weigh in that would be super helpful. Has the Airtable Legacy Zapier connection been deprecated with no advanced warning, or is this an error that will be fixed quickly?

If it’s an error we can survive for a day to wait for the fix. If it’s permanent I need to start renovating two dozen zaps immediately to get our fulfillment system back up and running.

This is supremely frustrating. I started reconnecting zaps manually and guess what…DEPRECATED AGAIN! This time I can’t even reconnect Airtable! I’ve messaged Zapier but can someone from Airtable respond to what is going on??

Do you all think this issue is in any way linked to the update? Zapier & Airtable Integration Broken: "table...configured to limit who can perform this operation"

Unfortunately, I’m not sure. Right now I’m too worried to even try to reconnect anything again for fear that zapier/airtable will ‘deprecate’ again.

Well… I wanted to avoid resorting to @ing people, but @Taylor_Savage, @Erin_OHern, @Jason any idea what might be up?
