Getting Started

This integration creates a workflow with a Typeform trigger and RSS 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 Submission trigger
    1. Connect your Typeform account
    2. Select a Form
  3. Configure the Merge RSS Feeds action
    1. Configure Feeds
    2. Optional- Configure merge
    3. Connect your RSS account
  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  6. Turn on the trigger


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.
TypeformtypeformappThis component uses the Typeform app.
FormformIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
N/Ahttp$.interface.httpThis component uses $.interface.http to generate a unique URL when the component is first instantiated. Each request to the URL will trigger the run() method of the component.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

	If merge is true, its an array of feed items where each item has a .feed

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.


The list of RSS feeds you want to parse.


If true, all items are returned in a date sorted array. If false, each feed is returned as one result in the array.

RSSrssappThis component uses the RSS app.

Action Authentication

The RSS API does not require authentication.
