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
Zoho CRMzohoCrmappThis component uses the Zoho CRM app.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.
N/Ahttp$.interface.httpThis component uses $.interface.http to generate a unique URL when the component is first instantiated. Each request to the URL will trigger the run() method of the component.
Subscription Renewal Timertimer$.interface.timer

Zoho CRM webhooks subscriptions have an expiration date of up to 1 day. This event source renews the subscription every 12 hours by default.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

ZohoCRM.settings.allZohoCRM.users.allZohoCRM.org.allZohoCRM.modules.allZohoCRM.bulk.allZohoCRM.notifications.readZohoCRM.notifications.createZohoCRM.notifications.updateZohoCRM.notifications.deleteZohoCRM.coql.READZohoCRM.functions.execute.READZohoCRM.functions.execute.CREATEZohoCRM.templates.email.READZohoCRM.templates.inventory.READ

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.

Airtable uses simple token-based authentication. To generate or manage your API key, visit your account settings.
