    4. Configure Typecast
  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  6. Turn on the trigger

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 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
Salesforce (REST API)salesforceappThis component uses the Salesforce (REST API) app.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.
N/Ahttp$.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.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

Action

Description:Adds a record to a table.
Version:1.0.3
Key:airtable-create-single-record

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 commonActions from "../../common/actions.mjs";
import airtable from "../../airtable.app.mjs";
import common from "../common.mjs";

export default {
  key: "airtable-create-single-record",
  name: "Create single record",
  description: "Adds a record to a table.",
  version: "1.0.3",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    // eslint-disable-next-line pipedream/props-label,pipedream/props-description
    tableId: {
      ...common.props.tableId,
      reloadProps: true,
    },
    typecast: {
      propDefinition: [
        airtable,
        "typecast",
      ],
    },
  },
  async additionalProps() {
    return commonActions.additionalProps(this);
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    return commonActions.createRecord(this, $);
  },
};

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.
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.
