On February 1, 2024, Airtable will be deprecating their API key authentication method. Any Flows utilizing this older authentication method will need to be updated prior to the change on February 1st in order to continue running without interruption.
Any new Flows since August 1, 2023 will not be impacted as the step has moved to the updated authentication method
To update your authentication method, you’ll want to re-authenticate the Airtable step. Check out this video for detailed instructions, or follow along below for a step-by-step:
Access the Draft version of the Flow by going to the top left of your Flow, and clicking on
Double Click on your Airtable step to open the step settings
In the step settings, click on
Choose accountson the top left, and select
A module will pop up requesting Parabola access to Airtable. Select the Base and/or Workspaces you’d like to grant Parabola access to. Once that’s completed, click on
If you have multiple Airtable Steps in your Flow, continue to step 5. If you only have one Airtable step, continue to Step 6
You’ll want to make sure the authentication is updated across all of your Airtable steps on your Flow. Open up the remaining Airtable steps, and select the newly added authentication under the Choose accounts drop down.
You can remove your previous authentication by heading to the
Choose accountsdrop down, and clicking on
Next to your old authentication, click on the trash icon to delete the account
Lastly, publish those changes to the Live Flow by clicking on
Airtable has a limitation of 20 authentications per user- meaning if you have 20 or more Parabola Flows utilizing the Airtable OAuth, you may run into an authentication limit error:
You have reached the maximum access authorizations for this integration.
Utilizing Card Templates can help reduce the number of times you need to authenticate your Airtable step. Learn more about how to configure Card Templates on this video tutorial here or follow along below for a step-by-step:
In the Builder of your Parabola Flow, go to the top left of a card and click on
Save as template
Ensure the authentication is shared in the settings, then click on
Save this template
To use the Card Template, you can pull in your templates by heading to the Steps bar, going to the Card tab and selecting the template under the
My card templatescolumn. If you want to pull in templates from other teammates in your Parabola org, you can find those under the
Team card templatescolumn
