Details

This integration uses pre-built, open source 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 when a new column is added to a table. [See Docs](https://node-postgres.com/features/queries)
Version:0.0.5
Key:postgresql-new-column

PostgreSQL Overview

Assuming you want a few paragraphs on what you can do with the PostgreSQL API:

The following examples demonstrate some of the things that can be done with the
PostgreSQL API:

  • Developing a custom storage engine for PostgreSQL
  • Adding a new data type to PostgreSQL
  • Creating a new function for PostgreSQL
  • Building a graphical user interface for PostgreSQL
  • And much more!

Trigger Code

import common from "../common.mjs";

export default {
  ...common,
  name: "New Column",
  key: "postgresql-new-column",
  description: "Emit new event when a new column is added to a table. [See Docs](https://node-postgres.com/features/queries)",
  version: "0.0.5",
  type: "source",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    schema: {
      propDefinition: [
        common.props.postgresql,
        "schema",
      ],
    },
    table: {
      propDefinition: [
        common.props.postgresql,
        "table",
        (c) => ({
          schema: c.schema,
        }),
      ],
    },
  },
  async run() {
    const previousColumns = this._getPreviousValues() || [];

    const columns = await this.postgresql.getColumns(this.table, this.schema);

    const newColumns = columns.filter((column) => !previousColumns.includes(column));
    for (const column of newColumns) {
      const meta = this.generateMeta(column);
      this.$emit(column, meta);
    }

    this._setPreviousValues(columns);
  },
};

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.

Trigger Authentication

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

Before you connect to your PostgreSQL database from Pipedream, please make sure your database is either:

  1. Accessible from the public internet (You may need to add a firewall rule on 0.0.0.0/0 on port 3306), or

  2. Accessible from an SSH server that you route PostgreSQL requests through

After that, enter the following values:

  • host: The hostname or IP address of your PostgreSQL server
  • port: 3306, unless you run PostgreSQL on a different port
  • username: The account username to log in
  • password: The account password to log in
  • database: The name of the PostgreSQL database to run queries against

Action

Description:Add multiple rows of data to a Google Sheet
Version:0.1.5
Key:google_sheets-add-multiple-rows

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

Action Code

import googleSheets from "../../google_sheets.app.mjs";

export default {
  key: "google_sheets-add-multiple-rows",
  name: "Add Multiple Rows",
  description: "Add multiple rows of data to a Google Sheet",
  version: "0.1.5",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    googleSheets,
    drive: {
      propDefinition: [
        googleSheets,
        "watchedDrive",
      ],
    },
    sheetId: {
      propDefinition: [
        googleSheets,
        "sheetID",
        (c) => ({
          driveId: googleSheets.methods.getDriveId(c.drive),
        }),
      ],
    },
    sheetName: {
      propDefinition: [
        googleSheets,
        "sheetName",
        (c) => ({
          sheetId: c.sheetId,
        }),
      ],
    },
    rows: {
      propDefinition: [
        googleSheets,
        "rows",
      ],
    },
  },
  async run() {
    let rows = this.rows;

    let inputValidated = true;

    if (!Array.isArray(rows)) {
      rows = JSON.parse(this.rows);
    }

    if (!rows || !rows.length || !Array.isArray(rows)) {
      inputValidated = false;
    } else {
      rows.forEach((row) => { if (!Array.isArray(row)) { inputValidated = false; } });
    }

    // Throw an error if input validation failed
    if (!inputValidated) {
      console.error("Data Submitted:");
      console.error(rows);
      throw new Error("Rows data is not an array of arrays. Please enter an array of arrays in the `Rows` parameter above. If you're trying to send a single rows to Google Sheets, search for the action to add a single row to Sheets or try modifying the code for this step.");
    }

    return await this.googleSheets.addRowsToSheet({
      spreadsheetId: this.sheetId,
      range: this.sheetName,
      rows,
    });
  },
};

Action Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI.

LabelPropTypeDescription
Google SheetsgoogleSheetsappThis component uses the Google Sheets app.
DrivedrivestringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
SpreadsheetsheetIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Sheet NamesheetNamestringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Row Valuesrowsstring

Provide an array of arrays. Each nested array should represent a row, with each element of the nested array representing a cell/column value (e.g., passing [["Foo",1,2],["Bar",3,4]] will insert two rows of data with three columns each). The most common pattern is to reference an array of arrays exported by a previous step (e.g., {{steps.foo.$return_value}}). You may also enter or construct a string that will JSON.parse() to an array of arrays.

Action 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:
