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.
Google DrivegoogleDriveappThis component uses the Google Drive app.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.
N/Ahttp$.interface.httpThis component uses $.interface.http to generate a unique URL when the component is first instantiated. Each request to the URL will trigger the run() method of the component.
DrivedrivestringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Watch for changes to file propertieswatchForPropertiesChangesboolean

Watch for changes to file properties
in addition to changes to content. Defaults to false, watching for only changes to content.

Push notification renewal scheduletimer$.interface.timer

The Google Drive API requires occasional renewal of push notification subscriptions. This runs in the background, so you should not need to modify this schedule.

Foldersfoldersstring[]Select a value from the drop down menu.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

Action Authentication

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

Get your API Key in the Control Panel, specifically in Settings > API Keys. More info in docs.

If your Mailgun account resides in the EU, choose the EU option in the Region field. Otherwise, choose the US (non-EU) region.
