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.

Description:Exposes an HTTP API for scheduling messages to be emitted at a future time
Version:0.3.1
Key:pipedream-new-scheduled-tasks

Pipedream Overview

Pipedream is an API that allows you to build applications that can connect to
various data sources and processes them in real-time. You can use Pipedream to
create applications that can perform ETL (Extract, Transform, and Load) tasks,
as well as to create data-driven workflows.

Some examples of applications you can build using the Pipedream API include:

  • An application that can extract data from a database, transform it, and then
    load it into another database.
  • An application that can monitor a data source for changes, and then trigger a
    workflow in response to those changes.
  • An application that can poll an API for new data, and then process that data
    in real-time.

Version:0.0.1
Key:aero_workflow-create-appointment

Aero Workflow Overview

You can use the Aero Workflow API to build from simpleETL processes to
multi-step workflows that encompass a variety of microservices. The following
are examples of what you can build using the Aero Workflow API:

  • A process that ingests data from a remote data source, transforms it, and
    then stores it in a database.
  • A workflow that aggregates data from multiple data sources, runs some
    analysis on it, and then produces a report.
  • A process that monitors a data source for new data, ingests it, and then
    sends it to a message queue for processing by other elements of your system.
