Details

This integration uses pre-built, source-available components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Trigger

Description:Emit new event each time a new worksheet is created in a spreadsheet in a shared drive
Version:0.1.2
Key:google_sheets-new-worksheet-shared-drive

Google Sheets Overview

Some examples of things you can build using the Google Sheets API include:

  • A web app that lets users input data into a Google Sheet
  • A script that automatically updates a Google Sheet with data from another
    source
  • A tool that generates graphs and charts from data in a Google Sheet
  • A service that sends data from a Google Sheet to another API or application

Trigger Code

import httpBase from "../common/http-based/drive.mjs";
import newWorksheet from "../common/new-worksheet.mjs";

export default {
  ...httpBase,
  ...newWorksheet,
  key: "google_sheets-new-worksheet-shared-drive",
  type: "source",
  name: "New Worksheet (Shared Drive, Instant)",
  description: "Emit new event each time a new worksheet is created in a spreadsheet in a shared drive",
  version: "0.1.2",
  dedupe: "unique",
  hooks: {
    ...httpBase.hooks,
    ...newWorksheet.hooks,
  },
  props: {
    ...httpBase.props,
    ...newWorksheet.props,
  },
  methods: {
    ...httpBase.methods,
    ...newWorksheet.methods,
  },
};

Trigger Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI and CLI.
LabelPropTypeDescription
Google SheetsgoogleSheetsappThis component uses the Google Sheets app.
DrivewatchedDrivestringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between executions.
N/Ahttp$.interface.httpThis component uses $.interface.http to generate a unique URL when the component is first instantiated. Each request to the URL will trigger the run() method of the component.
Push notification renewal scheduletimer$.interface.timer

The Google Drive API requires occasionally renewal of push notification subscriptions. This runs in the background, so you should not need to modify this schedule.

SpreadsheetsheetIDstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.

Trigger Authentication

Google Sheets uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Google Sheets account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Google Sheets 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 Sheets API.

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

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive

Description:Adds selected items to the selected album. [See the documentation](https://developers.google.com/photos/library/guides/manage-albums#adding-items-to-album)

Google Photos Overview

Google Photos is a photo sharing and storage service developed by Google. It
was announced at the Google I/O conference on May 28, 2015. It allows users to
store, share, and edit photos and videos. The service also provides a suite of
tools for developers to build photo-sharing applications.

The Google Photos API provides a set of tools that developers can use to build
applications that enable users to share and edit photos and videos. The API
lets developers create, view, and edit albums, photos, and videos; upload and
download photos and videos; and search for photos and videos.

Albums, photos, and videos can be shared with other users, and users can add
comments to photos and videos. The API also provides a set of tools for
developers to build photo-sharing applications.
