Blackbaud API Integrations

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

Overview

The Blackbaud API lets you build a variety of applications that work with Blackbaud data. Here are some examples:

  • An application that displays a list of your organization's donors
  • A donor management tool that allows you to add, update, and delete donors
  • A tool that allows you to import donor data from a CSV file
  • An application that generates reports on your donor data
  • A donor portal that allows donors to login and view their giving history

import { axios } from "@pipedream/platform"
export default defineComponent({
  props: {
    blackbaud: {
      type: "app",
      app: "blackbaud",
    }
  },
  async run({steps, $}) {
    return await axios($, {
      url: `https://api.sky.blackbaud.com/webhook/v1/subscriptions`,
      headers: {
        Authorization: `Bearer ${this.blackbaud.$auth.oauth_access_token}`,
        "Bb-Api-Subscription-Key": `${this.blackbaud.$auth.bb_api_subscription_key}`,
      },
    })
  },
})

Authentication

Blackbaud uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Blackbaud account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Blackbaud and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Blackbaud API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

OAuth Request Configurations:
  1. authorization
    GEThttps://oauth2.sky.blackbaud.com/authorization?client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&state={{oauth.state}}&response_type=code&scope={{oauth.space_separated_scopes}}
  2. accessToken
