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 Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI and CLI.
LabelPropTypeDescription
TypeformtypeformappThis component uses the Typeform app.
N/Ahttp$.interface.httpThis component uses $.interface.http to generate a unique URL when the component is first instantiated. Each request to the URL will trigger the run() method of the component.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.
FormformIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

offlineaccounts:readforms:writeforms:readimages:writeimages:readthemes:writethemes:readresponses:readresponses:writewebhooks:readwebhooks:writeworkspaces:readworkspaces:write

Action Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI.

LabelPropTypeDescription

GuildguildIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Messagemessagestring

Enter a simple message up to 2000 characters. This is the most commonly used field. However, it's optional if you pass embed content.

Embedsembedsany

Embedded rich content (up to 6000 characters), this should be given as an array, e.g. [{"title": "Hello, Embed!","description": "This is an embedded message."}]. To pass data from another step, enter a reference using double curly brackets (e.g., {{steps.mydata.$return_value}}). Tip: Construct the embeds array in a Node.js code step, return it, and then pass the return value to this step.

Thread IDthreadIDstring

If provided, the message will be posted to this thread

Usernameusernamestring

Avatar URLavatarURLstring

If used, it overrides the default avatar

Include link to workflowincludeSentViaPipedreamboolean

Defaults to true, includes a link to this workflow at the end of your Discord message.

UseruserIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.

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