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 an event for each new or modified record in a view
Version:0.1.1
Key:airtable-new-or-modified-records-in-view

Airtable Overview

Using the Airtable API, you can build applications that can:

  • Create and manage databases
  • Add, update, and delete records
  • Search for records
  • Sort and filter records
  • Display records in a variety of ways
  • Import and export data

Trigger Code

import moment from "moment";
import axios from "axios";

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

export default {

        newRecords++;
      } else {
        record.type = "record_modified";
        modifiedRecords++;
      }

      record.metadata = metadata;

      this.$emit(record, {
        summary: `${record.type}: ${JSON.stringify(record.fields)}`,
        id: record.id,
      });
    }
    console.log(`Emitted ${newRecords} new records(s) and ${modifiedRecords} modified record(s).`);

    // We keep track of the timestamp of the current invocation
    this.updateLastTimestamp(event);
  },
};

Trigger Authentication

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

Visit your account settings, copy your API key, and enter it below. If you only need to read data from Airtable, and not modify it, you can generate a read-only API key.

About Airtable

Looks like a spreadsheet, acts like a database.

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",

        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:
