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

Description:Get a URL and emit the HTTP body as an event on every request
Version:0.1.1
Key:http-new-requests-payload-only

Trigger Code

import http from "../../http.app.mjs";

// Core HTTP component
// Returns a 200 OK response, emits the HTTP payload as an event
export default {
  key: "http-new-requests-payload-only",
  name: "New Requests (Payload Only)",
  // eslint-disable-next-line
  description: "Get a URL and emit the HTTP body as an event on every request",
  version: "0.1.1",
  type: "source",
  props: {
    // eslint-disable-next-line
    httpInterface: {
      type: "$.interface.http",
      customResponse: true,
    },
    http,
  },
  async run(event) {
    const { body } = event;
    this.httpInterface.respond({
      status: 200,
      body,
    });
    // Emit the HTTP payload
    this.$emit({
      body,
    });
  },
};

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
N/AhttpInterface$.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.
HTTP / WebhookhttpappThis component uses the HTTP / Webhook app.

Trigger Authentication

The HTTP / Webhook API does not require authentication.

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_hookgistnotificationsuserwrite:discussionwrite:packagesread:packages
