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

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.
LabelPropTypeDescription
WebflowwebflowappThis component uses the Webflow app.
SitesiteIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
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.
CollectionscollectionIdsstring[]Select a value from the drop down menu.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

LabelPropTypeDescription

Action Authentication

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

1) Create an API key in Twilio. There are two types of keys: Master and Standard. You'll need a Master key to interact with certain API endpoints, like /Accounts. If you don't need to interact with those endpoints, you can use a Standard key.

2) After creating your key, you'll see an Sid and Secret. Enter those in the fields below.

3) Visit your Twilio Dashboard. You'll see your Account SID listed near the top. Enter that in the AccountSid field below.
