Getting Started

This integration creates a workflow with a SFTP (password-based auth) trigger and SWAPI - Star Wars 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 Remote Directory Watcher trigger
    1. Connect your SFTP (password-based auth) account
    2. Configure timer
    3. Configure Root directory
    4. Configure Maximum watcher depth
  3. Configure the Get Film action
    1. Connect your SWAPI - Star Wars account
    2. Select a film
  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  6. Turn on the trigger


This integration uses pre-built, source-available 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.

SFTP (password-based auth) Overview

SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) is a network protocol that provides secure
file transfers over secure shell (SSH) connections. It is an extension of the
Secure Shell protocol, designed for secure file exchange between hosts. A user
can securely transfer files between systems without having to worry about
external threats, as the protocol is encrypted and authenticated.

With the SFTP API, you can build applications that securely transfer data, such
as files and documents, between two different systems. Some example
applications include:

  • Secure document sharing between two systems
  • Secure file synchronization between two systems
  • Secure backups of data over the network
  • Secure transfers of large files
  • Secure uploads and downloads of data
  • Media streaming between two systems

Trigger Code

import sftpApp from "../../sftp_password_based_auth.app.mjs";
import base from "../../../sftp/sources/watch-remote-directory/watch-remote-directory.mjs";

export default {
  key: "sftp_password_based_auth-watch-remote-directory",
  name: "New Remote Directory Watcher",
  description: "Emit new events when files get created, changed or deleted from a remote directory. [See the docs](https://github.com/theophilusx/ssh2-sftp-client#orgfac43d1)",
  version: "0.0.1",
  type: "source",
  props: {
  methods: {
    async connect() {
      return await this.sftpApp.connect();

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.
SFTP (password-based auth)sftpAppappThis component uses the SFTP (password-based auth) app.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between executions.
Root directoryrootDirectorystring

Root directory to be watched. example: /public

Maximum watcher depthmaxDepthinteger

Watch all subdirectories within of the root directory, considering the selected maximum depth.

Trigger Authentication

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

Below, enter the hostname of the SFTP server you'd like to connect to, your username, and the password you'd like to use to connect.

This app only supports password-based authentication, not authentication via private key. If you need to use a private key to connect to a host, please use the SFTP (key-based auth) app, instead.

SWAPI - Star Wars Overview

The SWAPI (Star Wars API) provides a wealth of data about the Star Wars
universe to build applications. With the SWAPI, developers can access detailed
Star Wars related data about people, planets, films, species and much more.
From web and mobile applications to data analysis, the possibilities are

Here are a few examples of what developers can build using the SWAPI:

  • Create a Star Wars encyclopedia to document the Star Wars universe and its
  • Design a custom interactive map to explore the planets of the Star Wars
  • Analyze the data to uncover patterns and insights about Star Wars films,
    characters, and species.
  • Design a search engine to query Star Wars related data.
  • Create a mobile app that displays information about the characters, films and
    species in the Star Wars universe.
  • Design a live score system specialized in providing stats related to the Star
    Wars films and characters.

Action Code

const swapi = require("../../swapi.app.js");
const axios = require("axios");

module.exports = {
  key: "swapi-get-film",
  name: "Get Film",
  version: "0.0.13",
  description: "Get a film",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    film: {
      propDefinition: [
  async run() {
    return (await axios({
      url: `https://swapi.dev/api/films/${this.film}`,

Action Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI.
