Details

This integration uses pre-built, open source 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 for each message posted to one or more channels in a Discord server
Version:1.0.0
Key:discord-new-message

Discord Overview

The Pipedream Discord app enables you to build event-driven workflows that interact with the Discord API. When you authorize the Pipedream app's access to your guilds, you can use Pipedream workflows to perform common Discord actions, or write your own code against the Discord API.

Trigger Code

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

export default {
  type: "source",
  key: "discord-new-message",
  name: "New Message (Instant)",
  description: "Emit new event for each message posted to one or more channels in a Discord server",
  version: "1.0.0",
  dedupe: "unique",
  props: {
    discord,
    channels: {
      type: "$.discord.channel[]",
      appProp: "discord",
      label: "Channels",
      description: "Select the channel(s) you'd like to be notified for",
    },
    // eslint-disable-next-line pipedream/props-label,pipedream/props-description
    discordApphook: {
      type: "$.interface.apphook",
      appProp: "discord",
      async eventNames() {
        return this.channels || [];
      },
    },
  },
  async run(event) {
    if (event.guildID != this.discord.$auth.guild_id) {
      return;
    }
    this.$emit(event, {
      id: event.id,
    });
  },
};

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.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

About Discord

Use this app to create a Discord source that emits messages from your guild to a Pipedream workflow.

Action

Description:Create a Record for a Knack object [(See docs here)](https://docs.knack.com/docs/object-based-post)
Version:0.0.1
Key:knack-create-record

Action Code

import base from "../common/base.mjs";
import { recordData } from "../common/props.mjs";

export default {
  ...base,
  key: "knack-create-record",
  name: "Create Record",
  description:
    "Create a Record for a Knack object [(See docs here)](https://docs.knack.com/docs/object-based-post)",
  version: "0.0.1",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    ...base.props,
    recordData,
  },
  methods: {
    getBaseParams() {
      return {
        objectKey: this.objectKey,
        data: this.recordData,
      };
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const response = await this.knack.createRecord($, this.getBaseParams());

    $.export("$summary", "Created record successfully");

    return response;
  },
};

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
KnackknackappThis component uses the Knack app.
Object KeyobjectKeystring

The key of the object which this record belongs to.

See the Knack API docs for more information.

Record DatarecordDataobject

The record fields to be updated and their new values.

See the Knack API docs for more information.

Action Authentication

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

Object-based requests require at least two headers: an application ID - to identify to our servers the app whose records you are requesting - and an API key (which is specific to each app) to authenticate the request. See docs.
