I have create a simple BASE in my Airtable account. I now wish to use this within my website project. Therefore, I have generated an API key via my account page.
Therefore, I have visited the following article: Creating a read-only API key – Airtable Support to try and find out how I ensure my API key is set to Read Only permissions. This is where the documentation isn’t very clear or understandable.
This article states, on section3, “While logged into your personal Airtable account again, add this new account as a read-only collaborator on the base that needs to be accessed with the integration you want to configure”.
This is the bit I am confused about. Add this new account as a read-only collaborator. What my account? Add myself as a read-only collaborator on my own base? How can I do this? If I open my base and go to Share, then invite myself with Read only permission it says I already I am the creator of the base. So does this mean I have to create a second Airtable account under a spoof name and with a different email just so I can then send myself an invite as a base collaborator? Even after I do this, would I then have to use the API key from this account instead?
