Version:0.0.5
Key:activecampaign-campaign-starts-sending

ActiveCampaign Overview

With ActiveCampaign's API, you can build a variety of integrations and
applications to help streamline your business. Here are just a few examples:

  • A contact importer that pulls in your contacts from another CRM or email
    service
  • A webhook that automatically updates your ActiveCampaign lists when someone
    subscribes or unsubscribes from your website
  • An integration that allows you to send SMS messages through ActiveCampaign
  • A geolocation tool that tracks where your contacts are located
  • And much more!

Trigger Code

import common from "../common/webhook.mjs";

export default {
  ...common,
  name: "New Campaign Starts Sending (Instant)",
  key: "activecampaign-campaign-starts-sending",
  description: "Emit new event each time a campaign starts sending.",
  version: "0.0.5",
  type: "source",
  dedupe: "unique",
  methods: {

        "sent",
      ];
    },
    getMeta(body) {
      const { date_time: dateTimeIso } = body;
      const ts = Date.parse(dateTimeIso);
      return {
        id: body["campaign[id]"],
        summary: body["campaign[name]"],
        ts,
      };
    },
  },
};

Trigger Authentication

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

You can find your Base URL and API Key in your Developer Settings in your account. See the ActiveCampaign API docs for more info.

Action

Description:Create one or more records in a table by passing an array of objects containing field names and values as key/value pairs.
Version:0.2.0
Key:airtable-create-multiple-records

Airtable Overview

Using the Airtable API, you can build applications that can:

  • Create and manage databases
  • Add, update, and delete records
  • Search for records
  • Sort and filter records
  • Display records in a variety of ways
  • Import and export data

Action Code

import chunk from "lodash.chunk";
import airtable from "../../airtable.app.mjs";
import common from "../common.mjs";

const BATCH_SIZE = 10; // The Airtable API allows us to update up to 10 rows per request.

export default {
  key: "airtable-create-multiple-records",
  name: "Create Multiple Records",
  description: "Create one or more records in a table by passing an array of objects containing field names and values as key/value pairs.",
  version: "0.2.0",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    records: {
      propDefinition: [
        airtable,
        "records",
      ],
    },
    typecast: {
      propDefinition: [
        airtable,
        "typecast",
      ],
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const baseId = this.baseId?.value ?? this.baseId;
    const tableId = this.tableId?.value ?? this.tableId;

    const table = this.airtable.base(baseId)(tableId);

    let data = this.records;
    if (!Array.isArray(data)) {
      data = JSON.parse(data);
    }
    data = data.map((fields) => ({
      fields,
    }));
    if (!data.length) {
      throw new Error("No Airtable record data passed to step. Please pass at least one record");
    }

    const params = {
      typecast: this.typecast,
    };

    const responses = [];
    for (const c of chunk(data, BATCH_SIZE)) {
      try {
        responses.push(...(await table.create(c, params)));
      } catch (err) {
        this.airtable.throwFormattedError(err);
      }
    }

    const l = responses.length;
    $.export("$summary", `Added ${l} record${l === 1
      ? ""
      : "s"} to ${this.baseId?.label || baseId}: [${this.tableId?.label || tableId}](https://airtable.com/${baseId}/${tableId})`);

    return responses;
  },
};

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
AirtableairtableappThis component uses the Airtable app.
BasebaseIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
TabletableIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Recordsrecordsstring

Provide an array of objects. Each object should represent a new record with the column name as the key and the data to insert as the corresponding value (e.g., passing [{"foo":"bar","id":123},{"foo":"baz","id":456}] will create two records and with values added to the fields foo and id). The most common pattern is to reference an array of objects exported by a previous step (e.g., {{steps.foo.$return_value}}). You may also enter or construct a string that will JSON.parse() to an array of objects.

Typecasttypecastboolean

The Airtable API will perform best-effort automatic data conversion from string values if the typecast parameter is True. Automatic conversion is disabled by default to ensure data integrity, but it may be helpful for integrating with 3rd party data sources.

Action Authentication

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

Visit your account settings, copy your API key, and enter it below. If you only need to read data from Airtable, and not modify it, you can generate a read-only API key.
