Trigger Authentication

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

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

bookmarks:writecalls:readcalls:writechannels:historychannels:readchannels:writednd:readdnd:writeemoji:readfiles:readgroups:historygroups:readgroups:writeim:historyim:readim:writelinks:readlinks:writempim:historympim:readmpim:writepins:readpins:writereactions:readreactions:writereminders:readreminders:writeremote_files:readremote_files:sharestars:readstars:writeteam:readusergroups:readusergroups:writeusers:readusers:read.emailusers:writechat:write:botchat:write:usercommandsfiles:write:userusers.profile:writeusers.profile:readsearch:read

Action Authentication

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

This integration requires the Application Passwords plugin to be installed in your Wordpress instance which allows you to authenticate users without providing their passwords directly.
The URL field if for your domain such as https://[URL]/wp-json/wp/v2/posts/POST_ID.
