Dynamic Tools and APIs

OpenAI Connector

This tool allows you to send prompts to the same engine that powers ChatGPT, by mixing static and dynamic values from your Airtable records.

Before you Begin

This tool is primarily intended to let you automate messages between OpenAI and Airtable, this is different than bulk processing.

Create your OpenAPI Key

To connect to the openai API you will need a key. A free trial account will give you some credit to use with the api, and a fairly slow rate limit. You can check your usage with the links below, add more credit and increase your rate limit too.

Check your usage :

From our experience, short requests cost about $0.01 per record / call so the free credit can be used a lot before upgrading.

Setup your Connector

The user interface…

1 - Choose whether you want text or image url returned based on your prompt
2 - Your message for artificial intelligence
3 - Choose which record to use in your prompt.
4 - Redirects to AI's answer.
7 - Redirects to api endpoint AI's answer.


Api key

Make sure you have your api key specified. If no click ‘here’ and specify it there.

Connect your Automations

Now from Airtable, Zapier or Make (or other systems) you can send a request to your endpoint with a script - and include the record id that you want to use in the prompt. The response will come back, and you can use it in any workflow you want.


Create new automation.

Add two actions:
Run a script
Update record

Run a script

Copy the script here into your automation…
let inputConfig = input.config();
let apiUrl = '[paste your sharing link here]' + inputConfig.recordid;
let apiResponse = await fetch(apiUrl);
let data = await apiResponse.text();
if (apiResponse.status == 200) output.set('openai', data)
else throw Error("No valid response. Aborting so no openai response is sent.")

Copy the Sharing Link for your project
Untitled 9.png

Make sure you replace the ‘sharing link’ in the script with the one you copied in the previous step…

We also need to add an Input variable for the record id.
Untitled 10.png
Give it the name recordid and for the value, click the [+] and then choose Airtable record ID

When you have done the steps above, click Test and you should see a successful result like this …
