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:Trigger your workflow every N hours, minutes or seconds.
Version:0.0.2
Key:schedule-custom-interval

Schedule Overview

The Schedule app in Pipedream is a powerful tool that allows you to trigger workflows at regular intervals, ranging from every minute to once a year. This enables the automation of repetitive tasks and the scheduling of actions to occur without manual intervention. By leveraging this API, you can execute code, run integrations, and process data on a reliable schedule, all within Pipedream's serverless environment.

Trigger Code

import schedule from "../../schedule.app.mjs";

export default {
  name: "Custom Interval",
  version: "0.0.2",
  key: "schedule-custom-interval",
  type: "source",
  description: "Trigger your workflow every N hours, minutes or seconds.",
  props: {
    schedule,
    cron: {
      propDefinition: [
        schedule,
        "cron",
      ],
    },
  },
};

Action

Description:Creates a purchase.
Version:0.1.1
Key:quickbooks_sandbox-create-purchase

Quickbooks Sandbox Overview

QuickBooks Sandbox API provides a robust platform for developers to test QuickBooks Online integrations without affecting live data. With Pipedream, you can harness this API to automate various accounting tasks, simulate financial scenarios, or validate app behavior pre-deployment. Imagine syncing invoice statuses with your CRM, triggering alerts based on financial thresholds, or reconciling payments programmatically—all in a safe, isolated environment before going live.
