Trigger Authentication

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

Follow these instructions to generate a private key tied to your Firebase service account. This will generate a JSON file that contains the project ID, private key, and client email that you should paste below.

When entering the private key, please add the full string included in the JSON file, from -----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY----- to -----END PRIVATE KEY-----, with all newline characters included.

Action Authentication

Google Drive uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Google Drive account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Google Drive and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Google Drive API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:
