Trigger Code

import common from "../common.mjs";

export default {
  key: "firebase_admin_sdk-new-doc-in-firestore-collection",
  name: "New Document in Firestore Collection",
  description: "Emit new event when a structured query returns new documents",
  version: "0.0.2",

  dedupe: "unique",
  props: {
    query: {
      propDefinition: [
  methods: {

      const queryResults = await this.firebase.runQuery(structuredQuery);

      for (const result of queryResults) {
        const meta = this.generateMeta(result);
        this.$emit(result, meta);
    generateMeta({ document }) {

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.

Polling Intervaltimer$.interface.timer

Pipedream will poll the API on this schedule

Structured Queryquerystring

Enter a structured query that returns new records from your target collection. Example: { "select": { "fields": [] }, "from": [ { "collectionId": "<YOUR COLLECTION>", "allDescendants": "true" } ] }

Trigger Authentication

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

Follow these instructions to generate a private key tied to your Firebase service account. This will generate a JSON file that contains the project ID, private key, and client email that you should paste below.

When entering the private key, please add the full string included in the JSON file, from -----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY----- to -----END PRIVATE KEY-----, with all newline characters included.
