Authentication

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

To use the Telegram Bot API, you must first create a new bot by chatting with the BotFather.

At the end of that process, you'll receive a token to authorize requests for your bot. Add that token below.

About Telegram Bot

Telegram is a cloud-based instant messaging and voice over IP service

About Pipedream

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.
