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 new event when you add a new column to a table. [See the docs here](https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/show-columns.html)
Version:0.0.2
Key:mysql-new-column

Trigger Code

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

export default {
  ...common,
  key: "mysql-new-column",
  name: "New Column",
  description: "Emit new event when you add a new column to a table. [See the docs here](https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/show-columns.html)",
  type: "source",
  version: "0.0.2",
  dedupe: "unique",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    db: "$.service.db",
  },
  methods: {
    ...common.methods,
    _getPreviousColumns() {
      return this.db.get("previousColumns");
    },
    _setPreviousColumns(previousColumns) {
      this.db.set("previousColumns", previousColumns);
    },
    async listResults() {
      let previousColumns = this._getPreviousColumns() || [];
      const columns = await this.mysql.listNewColumns(
        this.table,
        previousColumns,
      );
      this.iterateAndEmitEvents(columns);

      const newColumnNames =
        columns
          .map((column) => column.Field)
          .filter((c) => !previousColumns.includes(c));

      previousColumns = previousColumns.concat(newColumnNames);
      this._setPreviousColumns(previousColumns);
    },
    generateMeta(column) {
      const columnName = column.Field;
      return {
        id: `${columnName}${this.table}`,
        summary: columnName,
        ts: Date.now(),
      };
    },
  },
};

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
MySQLmysqlappThis component uses the MySQL app.
timer$.interface.timer
TabletablestringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.

Trigger Authentication

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

Before you connect to your MySQL database from Pipedream, please make sure your database is either:

1) Accessible from the public internet (You may need to add a firewall rule on 0.0.0.0/0 on port 3306), or

2) Accessible from an SSH server that you route MySQL requests through

After that, enter the following values:

  • host: The hostname or IP address of your MySQL server
  • port: 3306, unless you run MySQL on a different port
  • username: The account username to log in
  • password: The account password to log in
  • database: The name of the MySQL database to run queries against

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.

LabelPropTypeDescription
TwiliotwilioappThis component uses the Twilio app.
FromfromstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Totostring

The destination phone number in E.164 format. Format with a + and country code (e.g., +16175551212).

Texttextstring

The text you'd like Twilio to speak to the user when they pick up the phone.

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.
