Details

This integration uses pre-built, source-available 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 a category balance drops below a certain amount
Version:0.0.3
Key:you_need_a_budget-low-category-balance

You Need a Budget Overview

The You Need a Budget (YNAB) API provides APIs to interact with YNAB users’
budgets, transactions, and more. With the YNAB API, developers have the ability
to build applications that are tailored to an individual's budget and financial
lifestyle.

Whether you're looking to create an app to assist with budgeting and tracking
expenses, generating reports, or getting a real-time view of an individual's
budget and movements, the YNAB API provides the tools to do it. The YNAB API is
easy to use, secure, and versatile.

Here are some examples of how you can use the YNAB API:

  • Build an application to track expenses and generate reports
  • Monitor the balances of multiple budgets
  • Generate a budget snapshot based on accounts
  • Create custom visualizations and analytics tools
  • Create notifications when specific budget values change
  • Automate budgeting tasks, such as transfers and payments between accounts
  • Create interactive dashboards and track real-time trends
  • Enforce budgeting rules, such as threshold limits or budget goal tracking

Trigger Authentication

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

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