Kintone Integrations
Connect Airtable + Kintone in easier way

It's easy to connect Airtable + Kintone without coding knowledge. Start creating your own business flow.

In the beginning of this year, Airtable and Kintone announced an integration that allows users to easily share data between two services. The integration is done by a connector provided by Airtable. It is called “Kintone Integration Pack for Airtable” (https://www.airtable.com/integrations/kintone. This integration pack is used to connect data stored in Airtable with data stored in Kintone. Users can create or import data on Kintone and keep the data synchronized with Airtable through the connector. The reverse is also true that users can create or import data on Airtable and keep the data synchronized with Kintone through the connector. In order to benefit from this integration, we need to understand both services. Airtable and Kintone.

A.. Integration of Airtable and Kintone

First, we will explain how to integrate Airtable and Kintone using the connector. Then, we will explain how to integrate them manually. Finally, we will explain how users can use this integration for their business process.

1.. Integration of Airtable and Kintone using ConnectorThis is a quick guide through a sample business process that uses the integration pack to connect Airtable and Kintone. We will demonstrate how you can use these two services in combination with one another.

1.. First, you need to install the connector from Airtable into Kintone. For this, you have to go to https://www.airtable.com/integrations/kintone and copy and paste the “Integration Pack URL” into your browser. Then, you have to click on the “Install” button which will open the “Add-ons” page on Kintone. Here, you have to click on the “Install” button in front of the “Kintone Integration Pack for Airtable” add-on.

2.. After installing the connector into Kintone, you need to create a new table in Kintone and then import data from Airtable to Kintone. To create a new table, click on “Create Table” button on the left panel of the dashboard of Kintone and enter a name for the table in the box next to it. Then, click “Create Table” button at the bottom of the page. Now, users can import data from Airtable to newly created table by clicking on “Import Data” button in the left panel of the dashboard of Kintone. Then, users can select the type of resource they want to import from Airtable. Project, List or Data Type. To import data into a project in Kintone, select “Projects” as an imported resource type in the popup menu of Kintone. Then, users are able to select a project which they want to import to Kintone on the page where they can choose resource types to import from Airtable. Once they have selected a project, they can import it by clicking on “import” button in front of that project on the popup menu where they can choose resource types to import from Airtable.

3.. Once users have imported all lists from an Airtable project into a new table on Kintone, they can start syncing data between them. For this, users have to define which field in the new table should contain information about what has changed on Airtable since the last sync date and which field should contain information about what has changed on Kintone since the last sync date in their sync configuration. After defining sync configuration, users have to click on “Sync Now” button at the right side of that configuration which will start syncing data between them. When syncing is finished, users will be able to see all changes from both sides in a single table at once.

4.. Last but not least, users can remove connection between Airtable and Kintone by deleting that connection from their account settings page on Kintone dashboard and by clicking on “Remove” button in front of that connection on their account settings page on Airtable dashboard.

Benefits.Users can connect two services together and share data between them without any coding skills. Also, they don’t need to pay additional fees because it is a free service provided by Airtable and Kintone.

2.. Integration of Airtable and Kintone ManuallyThis is a step by step guide through a sample business process that uses manual integration of these two services. This guide demonstrates how users can integrate these two services together without using any connectors supported by them. Users who want to integrate these two applications manually should be familiar with usage instructions for both services. Airtable and Kintone. Also, they need to know some basic programming skills if they want to implement specific business logic using those services. User needs to create API keys for each service before proceeding with this guide as described below:

1.. First, user has to create an API key for Kintone by going to https://app-auth.kintone.com/appsew#app_key_management and hitting "Create New App Key". They should fill out form marked by red frame below:

After creating API key for Kintone, they should copy it and save it somewhere else as they won't be able to find it again if they lose it afterwards. Then, user has to repeat steps 2-3 above for creating an API key for Airtable as well. https://www.airtable.com/api#key-requests

2.. After creating API keys for both services, user has to make sure that both of them support manual integration with one another (https://www.airtable.com/docs/connectors#manual-integration. For this, user should check description of “Kintone Integration Pack for Airtable” connector on Airtable website (https://www.airtable.com/integrations/kintone. and check whether there is an option named "Manual" among available options there because if there is no such option listed there then connector does not support manual integration with other services including Kintone but only supports automatic integration with them using webhooks or Zapier integrations (https://zapier.com. If there is an option named "Manual" among available options then connector supports manual integration with other services including Kintone but does not support automatic integration with them using webhooks or Zapier integrations (https://zapier.com. So user has to make sure that both of them support manual integration with one another (https://www.airtable.com/docs/connectors#manual-integration. If there is no such option named "Manual" among available options then user cannot use this connector and should proceed directly with manual implementation of business process using these two services as described below:

a.. If user wants to integrate Airtable with Kintone manually then they should copy all API keys for each service from their accounts settings pages at https://www.airtable.com/account#api and https://app-auth.kintone.com/appsew#app_key_management respectively and save them somewhere else as they won't be able to find them again if they lose them afterwards:

b.. If user wants to integrate Kintone with Airtable manually then they should copy all API keys for each service from their accounts settings pages at https://app-auth.kintone.com/appsew#app_key_management and https://www.airtable.com/account#api respectively and save them somewhere else as they won't be able to find them again if they lose them afterwards:

3.. Next step is creating fields in both systems that will be used as triggers of synchronization between them:

After creating triggers users have to configure synchronization itself between those systems as described below:

a.. If user wants to create triggers for Airtable -> Kintone direction then they should go to https://www.airtable.com/api#posts and find a list of objects that can be used as triggers such as list event trigger or table event trigger (https://www.airtable.com/api#event-triggers. Then, user should follow instructions specified there to configure triggers for different kinds of objects available there:

b.. User should repeat step
