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 file is added to your account or a specific folder. Make sure the number of files/folders in the watched folder does not exceed 4000.
Version:0.0.10
Key:dropbox-new-file

Dropbox Overview

With the Dropbox API, you can build a variety of applications that range from
simple file sharing to complex content management systems. Some examples of
what you can build using the Dropbox API include:

  • A file sharing application that allows users to share and sync files across
    devices
  • A content management system that allows users to manage and share files and
    folders
  • A note taking application that allows users to sync notes across devices
  • A task management application that allows users to manage and share tasks and
    files
  • A document management application that allows users to manage and share
    documents and files

Trigger Authentication

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

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

Discord Bot Overview

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

Action Authentication

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

This app allows you to use the Discord API using your own Discord bot. If you don't want to use a custom bot, and you just need to use the Discord API, exit this screen and use the Discord app, instead.


If you want to use your own Discord bot, but haven't created one yet, see these instructions or watch this video. You'll need to add this bot to your server(s) to make successful API requests.

Once you've created your bot, you'll find the Bot token within the Bot section of your app. Enter that token below.

About Discord Bot
