Getting Started

This integration creates a workflow with a Twilio SendGrid trigger and HTTP / Webhook action. When you configure and deploy the workflow, it will run on Pipedream's servers 24x7 for free.

  1. Select this integration
  2. Configure the New Contact trigger
    1. Connect your Twilio SendGrid account
    2. Configure timer
  3. Configure the Send any HTTP Request action
    1. Connect your HTTP / Webhook account
    2. Configure HTTP Request Configuration
  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.
