Every time I try something in pipedream it doesnot work

Hello, I just came from postman and everything works fine. I come to pipedream to try to make things happen, and nothing works. Let me ask this, all I need to do is send a client_id and secret to an auth endpoint, return the bearer token, and use in another step. I have been entering the client id and secret in the section “auth” in the pipedream interface. Is this correct? I see no place to select that the data is xxx-url-encoded, so I assumed it defaults that way. There are so many confusing options it is impossible to determine what should go where.

Hi there, sorry to hear you’re having trouble getting started!

In order to best help you out, can you tell me more about the APIs you’re attempting to connect to? If possible, can you include a screenshot of the setup in Postman? (please make sure not to include any sensitive info like secret keys etc) Then we should be able to get you set up.

Thank you but i solved the problem by just writing a custom express app and deploying to firebase cloud functions. It was simpler to learn and took me a fraction of the time. Thanks anyway.

Sorry to hear we could get you up and running – feel free to reach out again if you have any questions!
