    1. Connect your Google Drive account
    2. Optional- Configure Drive
    3. Configure Push notification renewal schedule
    4. Select one or more Files
    5. Configure intervalAlert
    6. Optional- Configure Minimum Interval Per File
    7. Select one or more Types of updates
  3. Configure the Add Record action
    1. Connect your nocodb account
    2. Select a Workspace ID
    3. Select a Project ID
    4. Select a Table ID

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:Watches for changes to specific files, emitting an event when a change is made to one of those files. To watch for changes to [shared drive](https://support.google.com/a/users/answer/9310351) files, use the **Changes to Specific Files (Shared Drive)** source instead.
Version:0.2.0
Key:google_drive-changes-to-specific-files

Google Drive Overview

The Google Drive API on Pipedream allows you to automate various file management tasks, such as creating, reading, updating, and deleting files within your Google Drive. You can also share files, manage permissions, and monitor changes to files and folders. This opens up possibilities for creating workflows that seamlessly integrate with other apps and services, streamlining document handling, backup processes, and collaborative workflows.

Push notification renewal scheduletimer$.interface.timer

The Google Drive API requires occasional renewal of push notification subscriptions. This runs in the background, so you should not need to modify this schedule.

Minimum Interval Per FileperFileIntervalinteger

How many minutes to wait until the same file can emit another event.

If set to 0, this interval is disabled and all events will be emitted.

Trigger Authentication

Google Drive uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Google Drive account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Google Drive 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 Drive API.

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

About Google Drive

Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service which allows you to create and share your work online, and access your documents from anywhere.

Action

Description:This action adds a record in a table. [See the documentation](https://data-apis-v2.nocodb.com/#tag/Table-Records/operation/db-data-table-row-create)
Version:0.0.3
Key:nocodb-add-record

nocodb Overview

The NoCodeB (NocoDB) API transforms your databases into a smart Excel sheet, providing a platform for managing your data with the ease of a spreadsheet interface. When combined with Pipedream's capabilities, this API allows you to automate data operations, sync with other databases or apps, and streamline workflows without writing complex code. Using Pipedream, you can trigger events based on changes in your NocoDB, process and manipulate the data, and connect to countless apps to extend functionality, such as sending notifications, updating CRMs, or generating reports.

Action Authentication

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

Your API key can be found in API Tokens Management within your database.
Your domain is where your app is hosted, so for https://mytable.com use mytable.com for the domain.
