AirTable - ID in read option


I’m very excited about n8n and what it can do. But on start I have a problem with AirTable node - I’m testing read option and I get a field to fill called ID. My question is what is this ID? In n8n docs is only append example and in this function ID is not required:

Thank you!

That is the ID of the record to return. Each record (row) in AirTable has an ID and there you define which one to return.
If you want to return all the records of a table, you would have to change the “Operation” to “List” and then you get really everything.

Thank you for info, but how can I read an id of this record?

Hey @velkan!

There are two ways you can do this. You can create a new column in your Airtable which lists the Record ID. You can learn how to do that here. The other way is to use the List operation. The List operation will return the Record ID of all the records, you can then use the Record ID of the record you need.

Hope this helps!
