Invalid API when connecting to airtable

There was a thread on exactly this question from Jun/Aug 20, but I’m having this problem today and that thread said it was solved.

So, I cannot connect to the airtable using the API. I’ve followed the instructions exactly, copied the API from the account and it’s not picking up the base I need. (not connecting at all).

I’ve tried removing all old/other data sources, refreshing the screen. Incredibly frustrating as this is the 2nd hour I’ve spend now trying to get a data source with images to connect.

Is it broken now like it was back in Aug20? or is it some other problem?

OK, so it seemed to work in the end. just needed 15minutes or so. answering in case others have the same question.
