Getting Started

Create a workflow to Add or update multiple records with the Data Stores API. When you configure and deploy the workflow, it will run on Pipedream's servers 24x7 for free.

  1. Configure the Add or update multiple records action
    1. Connect your Data Stores account
    2. Configure Data Store
    3. Configure Data
  2. Select a trigger to run your workflow on HTTP requests, schedules or app events
  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
Data StoresappappThis component uses the Data Stores app.
Data StoredataStoredata_store

Select an existing Data Store or create a new one.

Datadataobject

Enter data you'd like to add as key-value pairs, or reference an object from a previous step using a custom expression (e.g., {{steps.data.$return_value}}). Note that any keys that are duplicated will get overwritten with the last value entered (so [{jerry: "constanza", jerry: "seinfeld"}] will get stored as [{jerry: "seinfeld"}]).

Authentication

The Data Stores API does not require authentication.

About Pipedream

Stop writing boilerplate code, struggling with authentication and managing infrastructure. Start connecting APIs with code-level control when you need it — and no code when you don't.
