Authentication

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

If you haven't created a Discord bot, see these instructions or watch this video. You'll need to add this bot to your server(s).

Once you've created your bot, you'll find the Bot token within the Bot section of your app.

About Discord Bot

Use this app to interact with the Discord API using a bot in your account

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.
