  6. Turn on the trigger

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.

Google Cloud Overview

The Google Cloud API allows developers to access a variety of Google Cloud
services from their own applications. Services that can be accessed include
Google Cloud Storage, Google Cloud Datastore, Google Cloud Functions, and
Google Cloud Pub/Sub. With the Google Cloud API, developers can build a variety
of applications that take advantage of Google Cloud services.

Trigger Authentication

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

  1. Create a service account in GCP and set the permissions you need for Pipedream workflows.

  2. Generate a service account key

  3. Download the key details in JSON format

  4. Open the JSON in a text editor, and copy and paste its contents here.

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",

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:
