  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  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.

Trigger Authentication

Discord uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Discord account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Discord and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Discord API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

About Discord

Use this app to create a Discord source that emits messages from your guild to a Pipedream workflow.

Select an existing Data Store or create a new one.

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.
