    1. Connect your AWS account
    2. Select a AWS Region
    3. Optional- Configure Secret
  2. Add steps to connect to 700+ APIs using code and no-code building blocks
  3. Deploy the workflow
  4. Send a test event to validate your setup
  5. Turn on the trigger

Details

This is a pre-built, open source component from Pipedream's GitHub repo. The component is developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI and CLI.
LabelPropTypeDescription
AWSawsappThis component uses the AWS app.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.
N/Ahttp$.interface.httpThis component uses $.interface.http to generate a unique URL when the component is first instantiated. Each request to the URL will trigger the run() method of the component.
AWS RegionregionstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Secretsecretstring

Optional but recommended: if you enter a secret here, you must pass this value in the secret parameter of each HTTP POST request

Authentication

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

Follow the AWS Instructions for creating an IAM user with an associated access and secret key.

As a best practice, attach the minimum set of IAM permissions necessary to perform the specific task in Pipedream. If your workflow only needs to perform a single API call, you should create a user and associate an IAM group / policy with permission to do only that task. You can create as many linked AWS accounts in Pipedream as you'd like.

Once done, enter your access and secret key below.
