Ably API Integrations

Build and run workflows using the Ably API. Use 1000s of open source triggers and actions across 800+ apps. Or write custom code to integrate any app or API in seconds.

import { axios } from "@pipedream/platform"
export default defineComponent({
  props: {
    ably: {
      type: "app",
      app: "ably",
  async run({steps, $}) {
    return await axios($, {
      url: `https://rest.ably.io/channels/rest-example/messages`,
      auth: {
        username: `${this.ably.$auth.api_key_initial}`,
        password: `${this.ably.$auth.api_key_remaining}`,


Ably uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Ably account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Ably APIs in both code and no-code steps.

The full application key string can obtained through the dashboard and split at the colon.
api_key_initial is the initial segment of the api key before the colon used as the user name
api_key_remaining is the remaining string (without the leading colon) used as the password.
