Details

This integration uses pre-built, source-available 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.

Key:segment-webhook-destination

Segment Overview

The Segment API enables you to collect, manage, and route your customer analytics data to various tools for marketing, analytics, and data warehousing. By harnessing the Segment API on Pipedream, you can automate the ingestion and syncing of user events and properties to multiple destinations, allowing you to create seamless data pipelines without manual intervention. Pipedream's serverless platform empowers you to build custom workflows that react to events in real-time, enrich data, or trigger actions across your tech stack.

Trigger Authentication

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

Segment's APIs are accessed programmatically using access tokens, as well as write keys.

Access Token

Create access tokens via the Access Management page in your account: https://app.segment.com/{your-workspace-name}/settings/access-management. See "Get a Token" for more details. Please note, that you must be on a Team or Business plan to create an access token.

Write Key

You will also need to find your write key, which is a unique identifier for your Source. To find a write key, you first need to create a non-Cloud Source such as a website, server, or mobile source. (Cloud-sources do not have write keys, as they use a token or key from your account with that service.) Then, in the Source, go to “Settings’, and then go to “API Keys”. See "Locating Your Write Key" for more details.

Action

Description:Require authorization for incoming HTTP webhook requests. Make sure to configure the HTTP trigger to "Return a custom response from your workflow".
Version:0.0.3
Key:http-validate-webhook-auth

HTTP / Webhook Overview

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.
