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 items from an RSS feed
Version:1.1.1
Key:rss-new-item-in-feed

RSS Overview

With the RSS API you have the power to create powerful tools and applications.
RSS is a great way to reliably subscribe to, track and build around your
favorite content sources. Here are some examples of things you can create
using the RSS API:

  • A personal news website to syndicate articles from multiple sources.
  • A custom feed reader to deliver timely notifications of updates and news.
  • A live editorial dashboard to track news, trends and public sentiment.
  • An automated “report bot” to aggregate and report on news topics.
  • A competitor tracking tool to stay on top of industry news.
  • A custom RSS-based search engine or RSS-supported deep learning engine.
  • A live events feed to notify users and followers of new developments.

Action Authentication

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

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