Edit Step Code / Create Conditional

I’d like to send an email (using the email_me step) if a condition from a previous step is true. I’ve read on this board that each step in Pipeflow is node and to create a conditional, simply edit the code for a given step. My problem is - I can’t figure out how to edit the code for the email_me step. Should I get the source from github and use it in a new node step? Thanks!

Hi @dplescia ,

First off, welcome to the Pipedream community. Happy to have you!

This is a perfect use case for a brand new built-in action we just released called Filter.

Instead of editing the source code for the Email Me action, add a step prior that will exit the workflow early unless a condition is met.

So the flow would be:

  1. Trigger
  2. Filter (excluding certain conditions)
  3. Email me

Below is an example of this new action. In the example it’s configured to only continue processing the workflow if the prior step called sample_step includes a condition export that’s truthy:

Hope this helps!
