Getting Started

This integration creates a workflow with a Salesforce (REST API) trigger and Airtable 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 Object (of Selectable Type) trigger
    1. Connect your Salesforce (REST API) account
    2. Configure timer
    3. Select a Object Type
  3. Configure the Delete Record action
    1. Connect your Airtable account
    2. Configure baseId
    3. Configure tableId
    4. Configure Record ID
  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

Description: Emit an event (at regular intervals) when an object of arbitrary type (selected as an input parameter by the user) is created
Version:0.0.3
Key:salesforce-new-object

Trigger Code

const startCase = require('lodash/startCase');

const common = require('../../common');

  name: 'New Object (of Selectable Type)',
  key: 'salesforce-new-object',

      // By the time we try to retrieve an item, it might've been deleted. This
      // will cause `getSObject` to throw a 404 exception, which will reject its
      // promise. Hence, we need to filter those items that we still in Salesforce
      // and exclude those that are not.
      const itemRetrievals = await Promise.allSettled(
        ids.map(id => this.salesforce.getSObject(this.objectType, id)),

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.

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 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.

Airtable uses simple token-based authentication. To generate or manage your API key, visit your account settings.
