  2. Configure the New Scheduled Tasks (Alpha) trigger
    1. Connect your Pipedream account
    2. Optional- Configure Secret
  3. Configure the Create Issue action
    1. Connect your GitHub account
    2. Select a Repo
    3. Configure Title
    4. Optional- Configure Body
    5. Optional- Select one or more Labels
    6. Optional- Select a Milestone
    7. Optional- Configure Assignees
  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  6. Turn on the trigger

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
PipedreampipedreamappThis component uses the Pipedream app.
Secretsecretstring

Optional but recommended: if you enter a secret here, you must pass this value in the secret parameter HTTP POST requests

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.

Trigger Authentication

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

Your API key is in your Account Settings (Settings -> Account).

Optionally enter Github usernames to assign to this issue. Add one username per row or disable structured mode to pass an array of usernames in {{...}}. NOTE: Only users with push access can set assignees for new issues. Assignees are silently dropped otherwise.

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:
