Action

Description:Retreive Calendar details of a Google Calendar. [See the docs here](https://googleapis.dev/nodejs/googleapis/latest/calendar/classes/Resource$Calendars.html#get)
Version:0.1.0
Key:google_calendar-get-calendar

Google Calendar Overview

The Google Calendar API gives developers access to Google Calendar data,
allowing them to create their own applications that can read, write, and update
calendar data. With the API, users can integrate their own calendar
applications with Google Calendar, giving them the ability to manage their
calendars in one place. The API also provides the ability to search for events
and create new events.

Possible applications that could be built using the Google Calendar API
include:

  • A calendar application that integrates with Google Calendar, allowing users
    to manage their calendars in one place.
  • A calendar application that allows users to search for events and create new
    events.
  • A to-do list application that integrates with Google Calendar, allowing users
    to see their tasks and events in one place.
  • A reminder application that uses Google Calendar data to remind users of
    upcoming events.

Action Code

import googleCalendar from "../../google_calendar.app.mjs";

export default {
  key: "google_calendar-get-calendar",
  name: "Retreive Calendar Details",
  description: "Retreive Calendar details of a Google Calendar. [See the docs here](https://googleapis.dev/nodejs/googleapis/latest/calendar/classes/Resource$Calendars.html#get)",
  version: "0.1.0",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    googleCalendar,
    calendarId: {
      propDefinition: [
        googleCalendar,
        "calendarId",
      ],
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const response = await this.googleCalendar.getCalendar({
      calendarId: this.calendarId,
    });

    $.export("$summary", `Successfully retreived calendar ${response.id}`);

    return response;
  },
};

Action Configuration

Action Authentication

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

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

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.eventshttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.readonlyhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.settings.readonly
