Airtable Credentials dont support API Keys anymore

Describe the problem/error/question

I am working on the course 1 for beginners. I can’t connect my airtable node to airtable, because airtable does not support API keys anymore, they switched to personal tokens. How can I continue the cause / add Airtable to my Workflow?

What is the error message (if any)?

NodeApiError: Authorization failed - please check your credentials

Hey @Finn_Hemsteg,

You will need to create an Access Token, You can find the steps for this in Airtables documentation here: Creating and Using API Keys and Access Tokens | Airtable Support. Once you have your access token you can add it to the Access Token field in the Airtable credential in n8n and you will be good to go go.

I found the problem!

I had an older version of n8n installed before (before writing this post).
Then I upgraded to 1.1.1.

After that the airtable node still did not give me the option to use personal access tokens.

I had to delete the airtable credentials completely, after that it showed me the three choices of n8n version 1.1.1.

Thanks for your help.
