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 notifications when a new ticket is created
Version:0.0.2
Key:freshdesk-new-ticket

Freshdesk Overview

With the Freshdesk API, you can create powerful customer support applications.
Here are some examples of what you can build:

  • A ticketing system for tracking customer issues
  • A knowledge base for self-service customer support
  • A customer community for engaging customers and crowd-sourcing solutions
  • A call center management system

Trigger Code

import freshdesk from "../../freshdesk.app.mjs";
import moment from "moment";
import { DEFAULT_POLLING_SOURCE_TIMER_INTERVAL } from "@pipedream/platform";

export default {
  key: "freshdesk-new-ticket",
  name: "New Ticket",
  description: "Emit new notifications when a new ticket is created",
  version: "0.0.2",
  type: "source",
  props: {
    freshdesk,
    timer: {
      label: "Polling interval",
      description: "Pipedream will poll Harvest API on this schedule",
      type: "$.interface.timer",
      default: {
        intervalSeconds: DEFAULT_POLLING_SOURCE_TIMER_INTERVAL,
      },
    },
    db: "$.service.db",
  },
  dedupe: "unique",
  async run() {
    const data = [];
    let lastDateChecked = this.freshdesk.getLastDateChecked(this.db);
    if (!lastDateChecked) {
      lastDateChecked = new Date().toISOString();
      this.freshdesk.setLastDateChecked(this.db, lastDateChecked);
    }
    const formatedDate = lastDateChecked.substr(0, (lastDateChecked + "T").indexOf("T"));
    const tickets = await this.freshdesk.filterTickets({
      query: `"created_at:>'${formatedDate}'"`,
      page: 1,
    });
    for await (const ticket of tickets) {
      data.push(ticket);
    }
    data && data.reverse().forEach((ticket) => {
      this.freshdesk.setLastDateChecked(this.db, ticket.created_at);
      if (moment(ticket.created_at).isAfter(lastDateChecked)) {
        this.$emit(ticket,
          {
            id: ticket.id,
            summary: `Ticket number: ${ticket.id}`,
            ts: Date.parse(ticket.created_at),
          });
      }
    });
  },
};

Trigger Authentication

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

Your API key is in your Profile > Settings page, below the change password section on the right.
Your domain is 12345678 if your Freshdesk URL is https://12345678.freshdesk.com/

Action Authentication

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

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

repoadmin:orgadmin:public_keyadmin:org_hookgistprojectnotificationsuserwrite:discussionwrite:packagesread:packagesadmin:repo_hook
