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
DiscorddiscordappThis component uses the Discord app.
channel$.discord.channel
Messagemessagestring

Enter a simple message up to 2000 characters. This is the most commonly used field. However, it's optional if you pass embed content.

Include link to workflowincludeSentViaPipedreamboolean

Defaults to true, includes a link to this workflow at the end of your Discord message.

Embedsembedsany

Optionally pass an array of embed objects. E.g., {{ [{"description":"Use markdown including *Italic* **bold** __underline__ ~~strikeout~~ [hyperlink](https://google.com) `code`"}] }}. To pass data from another step, enter a reference using double curly brackets (e.g., {{steps.mydata.$return_value}}).
Tip: Construct the embeds array in a Node.js code step, return it, and then pass the return value to this step.

Authentication

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

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