View monthly usage

Your Data Fetcher plan gives you a certain amount of runs & records to use each month. You can see details of each plan on the pricing page.

Your usage period resets on the day of the month that you originally upgraded, not the start of the month.

What counts as a run?

One run is one request made to an API. Clicking the 'Run' button will always use at least one run. The cases where it will use more than one run are:

  1. Run on Multiple Records: when you run a request over a table/ view of records in Airtable, each of those Airtable records will use one run.

  2. Pagination: when you use a request with pagination, each page of data will use one run.

Failed API requests and the creating/refreshing the response field mapping do not consume any runs or records.

What counts as a record?

When you run a request, Data Fetcher transforms the response into Airtable records using the response data transformation and response field mapping. The number of records after that transformation is how many records are used by the run, regardless of how many values actually get changed in Airtable.

For example, running a request with this response would use 5 records (and 1 run):

Running a request with this response would use just 1 record (and 1 run):

How does 'Run on Multiple Records' affect usage?

When you Run on Multiple Records, each record in the 'Run on Multiple Records' table/view creates a separate run. So the number of records in the table/ view you select for 'Run on Multiple Records' would equal the number of runs used.

For example, if you run a request on 20 records to import the stock price for each, that would use 20 runs of your monthly usage.

The number of records would be some multiple of that number of runs, as described above. If each run just returns 1 record of data, that would be 20 x 1 = 20 records total.

How do scheduled and webhook requests affect usage?

Scheduled and webhook runs use the same number of runs and records as manual runs.
