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 each time a new worksheet is created in a spreadsheet. To use this source with a spreadsheet in a [Shared Drive](https://support.google.com/a/users/answer/9310351), use the **New Worksheet (Shared Drive, Instant)** source instead.
Version:0.0.14
Key:google_sheets-new-worksheet

Google Sheets Overview

Some examples of things you can build using the Google Sheets API include:

  • A web app that lets users input data into a Google Sheet
  • A script that automatically updates a Google Sheet with data from another
    source
  • A tool that generates graphs and charts from data in a Google Sheet
  • A service that sends data from a Google Sheet to another API or application

Trigger Code

import httpBase from "../common/http-based/sheet.mjs";
import newWorksheet from "../common/new-worksheet.mjs";

export default {
  ...httpBase,
  ...newWorksheet,
  key: "google_sheets-new-worksheet",
  type: "source",
  name: "New Worksheet (Instant)",
  description: "Emit new event each time a new worksheet is created in a spreadsheet. To use this source with a spreadsheet in a [Shared Drive](https://support.google.com/a/users/answer/9310351), use the **New Worksheet (Shared Drive, Instant)** source instead.",
  version: "0.0.14",
  dedupe: "unique",
  hooks: {
    ...httpBase.hooks,
    ...newWorksheet.hooks,

    ...httpBase.props,

  },
  methods: {
    ...httpBase.methods,
    ...newWorksheet.methods,
  },
};

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
Google SheetsgoogleSheetsappThis component uses the Google Sheets app.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between executions.
N/Ahttp$.interface.httpThis component uses $.interface.http to generate a unique URL when the component is first instantiated. Each request to the URL will trigger the run() method of the component.
Push notification renewal scheduletimer$.interface.timer

The Google Drive API requires occasionally renewal of push notification subscriptions. This runs in the background, so you should not need to modify this schedule.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive

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.
