Details

This integration uses pre-built, source-available components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are 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.

Trigger

DEAR Systems Overview

With the DEAR Systems API, you can build a range of applications that can
automate your business processes. Below are some examples of what you can
build:

  • An application to automatically generate invoices and send them to customers
  • A system to track inventory levels and send alerts when levels are low
  • An app to manage sales orders and send shipping notifications
  • A tool to streamline your purchasing process by integrating with supplier
    systems

Trigger 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.

Trigger Authentication

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

To use the API you will need your DEAR Account ID and API Application key. These can be created on the API setup page inside DEAR Inventory application.

About DEAR Systems

DEAR Inventory is a comprehensive inventory control application positioned as a complete back end management system with product planning, cost and development, manufacturing, sales, shipping and payment features.

Action

Airtable (OAuth) Overview

Using the Airtable API, you can build applications that can:

  • Create and manage databases
  • Add, update, and delete records
  • Search for records
  • Sort and filter records
  • Display records in a variety of ways
  • Import and export data

Action Code

import chunk from "lodash.chunk";
import airtable from "../../airtable_oauth.app.mjs";
import common from "../common/common.mjs";

const BATCH_SIZE = 10; // The Airtable API allows us to update up to 10 rows per request.

  },
};

Action Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI.

LabelPropTypeDescription
Airtable (OAuth)airtableappThis component uses the Airtable (OAuth) app.
BasebaseIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
TabletableIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Recordsrecordsstring

Provide an array of objects. Each object should represent a new record with the column name as the key and the data to insert as the corresponding value (e.g., passing [{"foo":"bar","id":123},{"foo":"baz","id":456}] will create two records and with values added to the fields foo and id). The most common pattern is to reference an array of objects exported by a previous step (e.g., {{steps.foo.$return_value}}). You may also enter or construct a string that will JSON.parse() to an array of objects.

Typecasttypecastboolean

The Airtable API will perform best-effort automatic data conversion from string values if the typecast parameter is True. Automatic conversion is disabled by default to ensure data integrity, but it may be helpful for integrating with 3rd party data sources.

Return Fields By Field IDreturnFieldsByFieldIdboolean

An optional boolean value that lets you return field objects where the key is the field id. This defaults to false, which returns field objects where the key is the field name.

Action Authentication

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

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

data.records:readdata.records:writedata.recordComments:readdata.recordComments:writeschema.bases:readschema.bases:writewebhook:manageuser.email:read
