Blocksprings API Key

Hi all,

I’m new to Bubble and hope someone could give me some guidance.

I’m currently working on the AirBnb course and I’m using Blocksprings on course number 10. For some reason I’m unable unable to locate the API key, I’ve attached the photo to show you. Please let me know suggestions.

Many Thanks, Weisy!

Hello, @Weisy. Thanks for reaching out.

You can avoid using the Blockspring. You can use Bubble’s own version of unique ID for the database thing in your workflow/design - https://bubble.io/reference#Data.Messages.CustomType._id.

Or try creating a random string that can be assigned to a thing and written down in database using the Random String Generator plugin - https://bubble.io/plugins

This Blockspring workaround, shown in the course, is just a nicer way of displaying the URL parameter so it is not that long a string as Bubble has, but we are using Bubble’s unique id even in our templates, which isn’t a big deal if you think about it.

Alongside using the Bubble’s unique ID parameter, you can use the slug parameter (it replaces the long unique ID with the custom value/text): https://manual.bubble.io/structuring-an-application/page-slugs

Hope it helps. :slightly_smiling_face:
Take care.

Hi @kate ,

Thank you for your reply, I really appreciate it.

I’ll follow your steps and give it a go.
