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 events when files get created, changed or deleted from a remote directory. [See the docs](https://github.com/theophilusx/ssh2-sftp-client#orgfac43d1)
Version:0.0.1
Key:sftp_password_based_auth-watch-remote-directory

SFTP (password-based auth) Overview

SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) is a network protocol that provides secure
file transfers over secure shell (SSH) connections. It is an extension of the
Secure Shell protocol, designed for secure file exchange between hosts. A user
can securely transfer files between systems without having to worry about
external threats, as the protocol is encrypted and authenticated.

With the SFTP API, you can build applications that securely transfer data, such
as files and documents, between two different systems. Some example
applications include:

  • Secure document sharing between two systems
  • Secure file synchronization between two systems
  • Secure backups of data over the network
  • Secure transfers of large files
  • Secure uploads and downloads of data
  • Media streaming between two systems

Trigger Code

import sftpApp from "../../sftp_password_based_auth.app.mjs";
import base from "../../../sftp/sources/watch-remote-directory/watch-remote-directory.mjs";

export default {
  ...base,
  key: "sftp_password_based_auth-watch-remote-directory",
  name: "New Remote Directory Watcher",

      return await this.sftpApp.connect();
    },
  },
};

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

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

Below, enter the hostname of the SFTP server you'd like to connect to, your username, and the password you'd like to use to connect.

This app only supports password-based authentication, not authentication via private key. If you need to use a private key to connect to a host, please use the SFTP (key-based auth) app, instead.

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:

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