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 each time a row or cell is updated in a spreadsheet in a shared drive
Version:0.0.1
Key:google_sheets-new-updates-shared-drive

Trigger Code

import httpBase from "../common/http-based/drive.mjs";
import newUpdates from "../common/new-updates.mjs";

export default {
  ...httpBase,
  ...newUpdates,
  key: "google_sheets-new-updates-shared-drive",
  type: "source",
  name: "New Updates (Shared Drive, Instant)",
  description: "Emit new event each time a row or cell is updated in a spreadsheet in a shared drive",
  version: "0.0.1",
  dedupe: "unique",
  props: {
    ...httpBase.props,
    ...newUpdates.props,
  },
  methods: {
    ...httpBase.methods,
    ...newUpdates.methods,
  },
};

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
Google SheetsgoogleSheetsappThis component uses the Google Sheets app.
DrivewatchedDrivestringSelect 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 $.interface.http to generate a unique URL when the component is first instantiated. Each request to the URL will trigger the run() method of the component.
Push notification renewal scheduletimer$.interface.timer

The Google Drive API requires occasionally renewal of push notification subscriptions. This runs in the background, so you should not need to modify this schedule.

SpreadsheetsheetIDstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Worksheet(s)worksheetIDsstring[]Select a value from the drop down menu.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive
