  • Clicking this button will generate an API key for you
  • Click inside the API Key field to reveal the API Key
  • Copy the API Key

The next steps will show you how to add it to your On2Air account

Is an API Key required to connect to Airtable?

Yes, an Airtable API Key is required to use third-party software with Airtable. You’ll need to add your API Key, Personal Access Token (PAT), or OAuth Integration to the third-party platform in order to access your Airtable workspace and data.

API Keys for Airtable will be deprecated in February 2024, so you’ll need to begin using PATs or OAuth. On2Air is currently developing our apps to use the new OAuth and PAT options and will give our customers notice to create a new connection when ready. In the meantime, you’ll still use your API Key to connect to On2Air.
