Details

This integration uses pre-built, source-available 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:Emit new event when a new row is added to a table. [See Docs](https://node-postgres.com/features/queries)
Version:1.0.3
Key:postgresql-new-row

PostgreSQL Overview

Assuming you want a few paragraphs on what you can do with the PostgreSQL API:

The following examples demonstrate some of the things that can be done with the
PostgreSQL API:

  • Developing a custom storage engine for PostgreSQL
  • Adding a new data type to PostgreSQL
  • Creating a new function for PostgreSQL
  • Building a graphical user interface for PostgreSQL
  • And much more!

Trigger Authentication

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

Before you connect to your PostgreSQL database from Pipedream, please make sure your database is either:

  1. Accessible from the public internet (You may need to add a firewall rule on 0.0.0.0/0 on port 3306), or

  2. Accessible from an SSH server that you route PostgreSQL requests through

After that, enter the following values:

  • host: The hostname or IP address of your PostgreSQL server
  • port: 3306, unless you run PostgreSQL on a different port
  • username: The account username to log in
  • password: The account password to log in
  • database: The name of the PostgreSQL database to run queries against

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.
