Stack Exchange (Stack Overflow) Overview

The Stack Exchange API provides programmatic access to Stack Overflow and other sites on the Stack Exchange network. With this API, you can fetch questions, answers, comments, user profiles, and other data that enables you to integrate Stack Exchange's wealth of knowledge and community activities into your own applications. Using Pipedream, you can harness this data to create custom workflows that react to events on Stack Exchange, compile reports, or even automate interactions, providing a powerful tool for developers, data analysts, and content creators.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

Airtable (OAuth) Overview

Airtable (OAuth) API on Pipedream allows you to manipulate and leverage your Airtable data in a myriad of powerful ways. Sync data between Airtable and other apps, trigger workflows on updates, or process bulk data operations asynchronously. By using Airtable's structured databases with Pipedream's serverless platform, you can craft custom automation solutions, integrate with other services seamlessly, and streamline complex data processes.

Action Code

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

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

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
Airtable (OAuth)airtableappThis component uses the Airtable (OAuth) 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.

Return Fields By Field IDreturnFieldsByFieldIdboolean

An optional boolean value that lets you return field objects where the key is the field id. This defaults to false, which returns field objects where the key is the field name.

Action Authentication

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

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

data.records:readdata.records:writedata.recordComments:readdata.recordComments:writeschema.bases:readschema.bases:writewebhook:manageuser.email:read
