Pipedream will poll the API on this schedule


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

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

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.
