Details

This integration uses pre-built, open source 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

Description:Emit new event when a new child object is discovered within a specific path
Version:0.0.3
Key:firebase_admin_sdk-new-child-object

Firebase Admin SDK Overview

With the Firebase Admin SDK API, you can build a variety of different
applications and tools. For example, you could build a tool to manage your
Firebase project's users, or a tool to monitor your Firebase project's data
usage. You could also build an app that helps you manage your Firebase
project's settings, or an app that helps you troubleshoot your Firebase
project's data.

Trigger Code

import common from "../common.mjs";

export default {
  ...common,
  key: "firebase_admin_sdk-new-child-object",
  name: "New Child Object in a Realtime Database",
  description: "Emit new event when a new child object is discovered within a specific path",

        "path",
      ],
    },
  },
  methods: {
    ...common.methods,
    async processEvent(event) {
      const { timestamp } = event;
      const ref = this.firebase.getApp().database()
        .ref(this.path);
      const snapshot = await ref.get();
      const children = snapshot.val() || {};
      for (const [
        key,
        value,
      ] of Object.entries(children)) {
        const meta = this.generateMeta(key, timestamp);
        const child = {
          [key]: value,
        };
        this.$emit(child, meta);
      }

    generateMeta(key, timestamp) {
      return {
        id: key,
        summary: `New child object: ${key}`,
        ts: timestamp,

    },
  },
};

Trigger Authentication

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

  1. Enable the Cloud Firestore API on your Firebase account, and make sure you've created at least one collection in the database.

  2. Follow these instructions to generate a private key tied to your Firebase service account. This will generate a JSON file that contains the project ID, private key, and client email that you should paste below.

  3. When entering the private key, please add the full string included in the JSON file, from -----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY----- to -----END PRIVATE KEY-----, with all newline characters included.

Action Authentication

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

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

bookmarks:writecalls:readcalls:writechannels:historychannels:readchannels:writednd:readdnd:writeemoji:readfiles:readgroups:historygroups:readgroups:writeim:historyim:readim:writelinks:readlinks:writempim:historympim:readmpim:writepins:readpins:writereactions:readreactions:writereminders:readreminders:writeremote_files:readremote_files:sharestars:readstars:writeteam:readusergroups:readusergroups:writeusers:readusers:read.emailusers:writechat:write:botchat:write:usercommandsfiles:write:userusers.profile:writeusers.profile:readsearch:read
