Article Summary


Starting February 1st, 2024, Airtable will deprecate the use of API keys. Airtable is transitioning to a new and improved authentication system using OAuth2, enhancing security and user experience. While we'll continue to support our current API Key system until February 1st, 2024, we encourage you to make the switch to OAuth2 as soon as possible.


Airtable combines the simplicity of spreadsheet interfaces with the robust functionality of a database. It's widely used for project management, inventory tracking, event planning, and more, offering a flexible and user-friendly approach to data organization and collaboration.
