Typeform Overview

The Typeform API furnishes you with the means to create dynamic forms and collect user responses in real-time. By leveraging this API within Pipedream's serverless platform, you can automate workflows to process this data, integrate seamlessly with other services, and react to form submissions instantaneously. This empowers you to craft tailored responses, synchronize with databases, trigger email campaigns, or even manage event registrations without manual intervention.

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 executions.
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

About Typeform

Typeform lets you build no-code forms, quizzes, and surveys - and get more responses.

Action

Version:0.0.12
Key:discord_bot-send-message

Discord Bot Overview

The Discord Bot API unlocks the power to interact with Discord users and channels programmatically, making it possible to automate messages, manage servers, and integrate with other services. With Pipedream's serverless platform, you can create complex workflows that respond to events in Discord, process data, and trigger actions in other apps. This opens up opportunities for community engagement, content moderation, analytics, and more, without the overhead of managing infrastructure.

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
Discord BotdiscordappThis component uses the Discord Bot app.
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

Overrides the current username

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.
ChannelchannelIdstringSelect 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 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.
