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 message was posted in a direct message channel
Version:1.0.14
Key:slack-new-direct-message

Slack Overview

The Pipedream Slack app enables you to build event-driven workflows that interact with the Slack API. Once you authorize the Pipedream app's access to your workspace, you can use Pipedream workflows to perform common Slack actions or write your own code against the Slack API.

The Pipedream Slack app is not a typical app. You don't interact with it directly as a bot, and it doesn't add custom functionality to your workspace out of the box. It makes it easier to automate anything you'd typically use the Slack API for, using Pipedream workflows.

  • Automate posting updates to your team channels
  • Create a bot to answer common questions
  • Integrate with your existing tools and services
  • And much more!

Trigger Code

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

export default {
  ...common,
  key: "slack-new-direct-message",
  name: "New Direct Message (Instant)",
  version: "1.0.14",
  description: "Emit new event when a message was posted in a direct message channel",
  type: "source",
  dedupe: "unique",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    // eslint-disable-next-line pipedream/props-description,pipedream/props-label
    slackApphook: {
      type: "$.interface.apphook",
      appProp: "slack",
      async eventNames() {
        return [
          "message.im",

Trigger Authentication

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

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

bookmarks:writecalls:readcalls:writechannels:historychannels:readchannels:writednd:readdnd:writeemoji:readfiles:readgroups:historygroups:readgroups:writeim:historyim:readim:writelinks:readlinks:writempim:historympim:readmpim:writepins:readpins:writereactions:readreactions:writereminders:readreminders:writeremote_files:readremote_files:sharestars:readstars:writeteam:readusergroups:readusergroups:writeusers:readusers:read.emailusers:writechat:write:botchat:write:usercommandsfiles:write:userusers.profile:writeusers.profile:readsearch:read

Action

Description:Continue workflow execution only if a condition is met
Version:0.0.2
Key:filter-continue-based-on-condition

Filter Overview

The Filter API in Pipedream allows for real-time data processing within workflows. It's designed to evaluate data against predefined conditions, enabling workflows to branch or perform specific actions based on those conditions. This API is instrumental in creating efficient, targeted automations that respond dynamically to diverse datasets. Using the Filter API, you can refine streams of data, ensuring that subsequent steps in your Pipedream workflow only execute when the data meets your specified criteria. This cuts down on unnecessary processing and facilitates the creation of more intelligent, context-aware systems.

Action Code

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

export default {
  ...common,
  name: "Continue execution if a condition Is met",
  version: "0.0.2",
  key: "filter-continue-based-on-condition",
  description: "Continue workflow execution only if a condition is met",
  type: "action",
  methods: {
    consolidateResult($, result) {
      !result && $.flow.exit(this.messageOnEnd);
      return this.messageOnContinue;
    },
  },
};
