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 Authentication

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

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

repoadmin:orgadmin:public_keyadmin:org_hookgistprojectnotificationsuserwrite:discussionwrite:packagesread:packagesadmin:repo_hook

Browserless Overview

Browserless allows you to build websites and applications that can be used
without a web browser. This means that you can create apps that can be used
offline, or that can be used on devices that don't have a web browser
installed.

Some examples of things that you can build using Browserless are:

  • A website that can be used without a web browser
  • An app that can be used offline
  • A app that can be used on devices that don't have a web browser installed

Action Authentication

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

Sign-up for a browserless account, it will create a unique token that allows service interaction.
