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:

LabelPropTypeDescription
Telegram BottelegramBotApiappThis component uses the Telegram Bot app.
Chat IDchatIdstring

Enter the unique identifier for the target chat (e.g. 1035597319) or username of the target public chat (in the format @channelusername or @supergroupusername). For example, if the group's public link is t.me/mygroup, the username is @mygroup.

Message IDmessageIdstring

Enter the message ID.

Action Authentication

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

To use the Telegram Bot API, you must first create a new bot by chatting with the BotFather.

At the end of that process, you'll receive a token to authorize requests for your bot. Add that token below.
