Getting Started

This integration creates a workflow with a FaunaDB 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 or Removed Documents in a Collection trigger
    1. Configure timer
    2. Connect your FaunaDB account
    3. Select a Collection
    4. Optional- Configure Emit changes as a single event
  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 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.
LabelPropTypeDescription
timer$.interface.timer
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.
FaunaDBfaunaappThis component uses the FaunaDB app.
CollectioncollectionstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Emit changes as a single eventemitEventsInBatchboolean

If true, all events are emitted as an array, within a single Pipedream event. Defaults to false, emitting each event in Fauna as its own event in Pipedream

Trigger Authentication

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

Create a key in the Security section of your FaunaDB dashboard, then enter the Secret below.

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.
