Details

QuickBaseRecordReader reads data from a QuickBase online database (http://quickbase.intuit.com). Records, the IDs of which are specified in the Records list component attribute, are read first. Records with IDs specified in the input are read afterward.

The read records are sent through the connected first output port. If the record is erroneous (e.g. not present in the database table), it can can be sent out through the optional second port if it is connected.

This component wraps the API_GetRecordInfo HTTP interaction (http://www.quickbase.com/api-guide/getrecordinfo.html).
