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

Version:0.0.3

MySQL Overview

MySQL is a powerful database management system used by some of the largest
organizations in the world, including Facebook, Google, and Amazon. MySQL is an
open-source relational database management system (RDBMS), as well as a popular
choice for web applications used by millions of websites.

Some applications that can be built using the MySQL API include:

  • A web application that stores and retrieves data from a MySQL database
  • A desktop application that uses a MySQL database for data storage
  • A mobile application that interacts with a MySQL database

Trigger Code

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

const { mysql } = common.props;

export default {
  ...common,
  key: "mysql-new-row",
  name: "New Row",
  description: "Emit new event when you add a new row to a table. [See the docs here](https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/select.html)",

        mysql,
        "column",
        (c) => ({
          table: c.table,
        }),
      ],
      optional: true,
    },
  },
  hooks: {
    /**
     * If column prop is left blank, get the table's primary key to use for ordering and deduping.
     * */
    async deploy() {
      let column = this.column;
      if (!column) {
        const keyData = await this.mysql.getPrimaryKey(this.table);
        column = keyData[0].Column_name;
      }

      await this.listTopRows(column);
    },
  },

    _setColumn(column) {
      this.db.set("column", column);
    },
    async listResults() {
      const column = this._getColumn();
      await this.listRowResults(column);
    },
    iterateAndEmitEvents(rows) {
      const column = this._getColumn();
      for (const row of rows) {
        const meta = this.generateMeta(row, column);
        this.$emit(row, meta);
      }
    },
    generateMeta(row, column) {
      return {
        id: row[column],
        summary: `New Row Added ${column}: ${row[column]}`,
        ts: Date.now(),
      };
    },
  },
};

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
MySQLmysqlappThis component uses the MySQL app.
timer$.interface.timer
TabletablestringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between executions.
ColumncolumnstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.

Trigger Authentication

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

Before you connect to your MySQL 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 MySQL requests through

After that, enter the following values:

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

          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
