Trigger

Description:Emit new items from an RSS feed
Version:1.1.2
Key:rss-new-item-in-feed

RSS Overview

With the RSS API you have the power to create powerful tools and applications.
RSS is a great way to reliably subscribe to, track and build around your
favorite content sources. Here are some examples of things you can create
using the RSS API:

  • A personal news website to syndicate articles from multiple sources.
  • A custom feed reader to deliver timely notifications of updates and news.
  • A live editorial dashboard to track news, trends and public sentiment.
  • An automated “report bot” to aggregate and report on news topics.
  • A competitor tracking tool to stay on top of industry news.
  • A custom RSS-based search engine or RSS-supported deep learning engine.
  • A live events feed to notify users and followers of new developments.

Version:0.3.1
Key:activecampaign-get-contact-by-email

ActiveCampaign Overview

With ActiveCampaign's API, you can build a variety of integrations and
applications to help streamline your business. Here are just a few examples:

  • A contact importer that pulls in your contacts from another CRM or email
    service
  • A webhook that automatically updates your ActiveCampaign lists when someone
    subscribes or unsubscribes from your website
  • An integration that allows you to send SMS messages through ActiveCampaign
  • A geolocation tool that tracks where your contacts are located
  • And much more!

Action Code

import activecampaign from "../../activecampaign.app.mjs";

export default {
  key: "activecampaign-get-contact-by-email",
  name: "Get contact by email",
  description: "Retrieves contact data from the ActiveCampaign CRM by email address. See the docs [here](https://developers.activecampaign.com/reference/list-all-contacts).",
  version: "0.3.1",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    activecampaign,
    email: {
      type: "string",
      label: "Email",
      description: "Email address of the contact you want to get.",
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const { email } = this;
    const { contacts } = await this.activecampaign.listContacts({
      params: {
        email,
      },
    });

    const contact = contacts.shift();
    if (contact) {
      $.export("$summary", `Successfully got a contact with ID ${contact.id}`);
    } else {
      $.export("$summary", "Contact not found with specified email");
    }
    return contact;
  },
};

Action Authentication

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

You can find your Base URL and API Key in your Developer Settings in your account. See the ActiveCampaign API docs for more info.
