Twilio SendGrid Overview

The Twilio SendGrid API opens up a world of possibilities for email automation, enabling you to send emails efficiently and track their performance. With this API, you can programmatically create and send personalized email campaigns, manage contacts, and parse inbound emails for data extraction. When you harness the power of Pipedream, you can connect SendGrid to hundreds of other apps to automate workflows, such as triggering email notifications based on specific actions, syncing email stats with your analytics, or handling incoming emails to create tasks or tickets.

Discord Bot Overview

The Discord Bot API unlocks the power to interact with Discord users and channels programmatically, making it possible to automate messages, manage servers, and integrate with other services. With Pipedream's serverless platform, you can create complex workflows that respond to events in Discord, process data, and trigger actions in other apps. This opens up opportunities for community engagement, content moderation, analytics, and more, without the overhead of managing infrastructure.

Action Authentication

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

This app allows you to use the Discord API using your own Discord bot. If you don't want to use a custom bot, and you just need to use the Discord API, exit this screen and use the Discord app, instead.


If you want to use your own Discord bot, but haven't created one yet, see these instructions or watch this video. You'll need to add this bot to your server(s) to make successful API requests.

Once you've created your bot, you'll find the Bot token within the Bot section of your app. Enter that token below.
