Getting Started

This integration creates a workflow with a PostgreSQL trigger and Data Stores action. When you configure and deploy the workflow, it will run on Pipedream's servers 24x7 for free.

  1. Select this integration
  2. Configure the New Column trigger
    1. Connect your PostgreSQL account
    2. Configure Polling Interval
    3. Optional- Configure Reject Unauthorized
    4. Select a Schema
    5. Select a Table
  3. Configure the Add or update multiple records action
    1. Connect your Data Stores account
    2. Configure Data Store
    3. Configure Data
  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  6. Turn on the trigger

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 event when a new column is added to a table. [See Docs](https://node-postgres.com/features/queries)
Version:0.0.6
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: "0.0.6",
  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.

Pipedream will poll the API on this schedule

Reject UnauthorizedrejectUnauthorizedboolean

If not false, the server certificate is verified against the list of supplied CAs. An 'error' event is emitted if verification fails

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 or update multiple records to your [Pipedream Data Store](https://pipedream.com/data-stores/).
Version:0.0.5
Key:data_stores-add-update-multiple-records

Data Stores Overview

With the Data Stores API, you can build applications that:

  • Store data for later retrieval
  • Retrieve data from a store
  • Update data in a store
  • Delete data from a store

Action Code

Datadataobject

Enter data you'd like to add as key-value pairs, or reference an object from a previous step using a custom expression (e.g., {{steps.data.$return_value}}). Note that any keys that are duplicated will get overwritten with the last value entered (so [{jerry: "constanza", jerry: "seinfeld"}] will get stored as [{jerry: "seinfeld"}]).

Action Authentication

The Data Stores API does not require authentication.
