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 event any time a new file is added in your linked Google Drive
Version:0.1.5
Key:google_drive-new-files-instant

Google Drive Overview

The Google Drive API on Pipedream allows you to automate various file management tasks, such as creating, reading, updating, and deleting files within your Google Drive. You can also share files, manage permissions, and monitor changes to files and folders. This opens up possibilities for creating workflows that seamlessly integrate with other apps and services, streamlining document handling, backup processes, and collaborative workflows.

Push notification renewal scheduletimer$.interface.timer

The Google Drive API requires occasional renewal of push notification subscriptions. This runs in the background, so you should not need to modify this schedule.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/drivehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.readonly

About Google Drive

Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service which allows you to create and share your work online, and access your documents from anywhere.

Action

Description:Delay the execution of your workflow for a specific amount of time (does not count against your compute time).
Version:0.0.1
Key:delay-workflow-delay

Delay Overview

The Delay API in Pipedream is a built-in function that allows you to pause a workflow for a specified amount of time. This can be incredibly useful when you need to stagger API calls to avoid rate limits, wait for an external process to complete, or simply introduce a delay between actions in a sequence. With precision up to milliseconds, the Delay API provides a simple yet powerful tool for managing timing in automation workflows.

Action Code

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

export default {
  name: "Delay Workflow",
  version: "0.0.1",
  key: "delay-workflow-delay",
  type: "action",
  description: "Delay the execution of your workflow for a specific amount of time (does not count against your compute time).",
  props: {
    delay,
    delayDurationValue: {
      propDefinition: [
        delay,
        "delayDurationValue",
      ],
      label: "Duration to delay (value)",
      description: "Specify a value for how long you'd like to delay your workflow.",
    },
    delayDurationUnit: {
      propDefinition: [
        delay,
        "delayDurationUnit",
      ],
      label: "Duration to delay (unit)",
      description: "Specify the time unit for delaying the workflow.",
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const milliseconds = this.delay.convertToMilliseconds(
      this.delayDurationUnit,
      this.delayDurationValue,
    );
    const resp = await $.flow.delay(milliseconds);
    $.export(
      "$summary",
      `Successfully configured this workflow to delay for ${this.delayDurationValue} ${this.delayDurationUnit}.`,
    );
    return resp;
  },
};

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
DelaydelayappThis component uses the Delay app.
Duration to delay (value)delayDurationValueinteger

Specify a value for how long you'd like to delay your workflow.

Duration to delay (unit)delayDurationUnitstringSelect a value from the drop down menu:MillisecondsSecondsMinutesHours

Action Authentication

The Delay API does not require authentication.

About Delay

Delay, pause, suspend, or have the execution of your workflow wait for as little as one millisecond, or as long as one year.
