Overview of HTTP / Webhook

Build, test, and send HTTP requests without code using your Pipedream workflows. The HTTP / Webhook action is a tool to build HTTP requests with a Postman-like graphical interface.

An interface for configuring an HTTP request within Pipedream's workflow system. The current selection is a GET request with fields for the request URL, authorization type (set to 'None' with a note explaining "This request does not use authorization"), parameters, headers (with a count of 1, though the detail is not visible), and body. Below the main configuration area is an option to "Include Response Headers," and a button labeled "Configure to test." The overall layout suggests a user-friendly, no-code approach to setting up custom HTTP requests.

Point and click HTTP requests

Define the target URL, HTTP verb, headers, query parameters, and payload body without writing custom code.

A screenshot of Pipedream's HTTP Request Configuration interface with a GET request type selected. The request URL is set to 'https://api.openai.com/v1/models'. The 'Auth' tab is highlighted, indicating that authentication is required for this request. In the headers section, there are two headers configured: 'User-Agent' is set to 'pipedream/1', and 'Authorization' is set to 'Bearer {{openai_api_key}}', showing how the OpenAI account's API key is dynamically inserted into the headers to handle authentication automatically.

Here's an example workflow that uses the HTTP / Webhook action to send an authenticated API request to OpenAI.

Focus on integrating, not authenticating

This action can also use your connected accounts with third-party APIs. Selecting an integrated app will automatically update the request’s headers to authenticate with the app properly, and even inject your token dynamically.

This GIF depicts the process of selecting an application within Pipedream's HTTP Request Builder. A user hovers the cursor over the 'Auth' tab and clicks on a dropdown menu labeled 'Authorization Type', then scrolls through a list of applications to choose from for authorization purposes. The interface provides a streamlined and intuitive method for users to authenticate their HTTP requests by selecting the relevant app in the configuration settings.

Pipedream integrates with thousands of APIs, but if you can’t find a Pipedream integration simply use Environment Variables in your request headers to authenticate with.

Compatible with no code actions or Node.js and Python

The HTTP/Webhook action exports HTTP response data for use in subsequent workflow steps, enabling easy data transformation, further API calls, database storage, and more.

Response data is available for both coded (Node.js, Python) and no-code steps within your workflow.

An image showing the Pipedream interface where the HTTP Webhook action has returned response data as a step export. The interface highlights a structured view of the returned data with collapsible sections. We can see 'steps.custom_request1' expanded to show 'return_value' which is an object containing a 'list'. Inside the list, an item 'data' is expanded to reveal an element with an 'id' of 'whisper-1', indicating a model created by and owned by 'openai-internal'. Options to 'Copy Path' and 'Copy Value' are available for easy access to the data points.

Overview of Firebase Admin SDK

The Firebase Admin SDK API provides powerful backend functionality for Firebase apps. It allows you to interact with Firebase services like Firestore, Firebase Realtime Database, Firebase Storage, and Firebase Authentication directly from a server. With Pipedream, you can harness this API to automate complex workflows, respond to Firebase events in real-time, and integrate with countless other services.

Normally I don't like to blog about stuff that isn't generally available to all, but as it will be available sometime soon, I decided to go ahead anyway. And I built something really cool I want to share so that's another reason to talk about this now!
