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

Description: Emit an event (at regular intervals) when an object of arbitrary type (selected as an input parameter by the user) is created

      // and exclude those that are not.

Trigger Authentication

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