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.

Slack Overview

The Pipedream Slack app enables you to build event-driven workflows that interact with the Slack API. When you authorize the Pipedream app's access to your workspace, you can use Pipedream workflows to perform common Slack actions, or write your own code against the Slack API.

The Pipedream Slack app is not a typical app. You don't interact with it directly as a bot, and it doesn't add custom functionality to your workspace out of the box. It just makes it easier to automate anything you'd typically use the Slack API for, using Pipedream workflows.

Here are some examples of automations you can build with Pipedream on Slack:

  • Automate posting updates to your team channel
  • Create a bot to answer common questions
  • Integrate with your existing tools and services
  • Build a custom dashboard to track your team's progress
  • Create a bot to handle scheduling and meeting requests
  • And much more!

Should I use the Slack or Slack Bot app on Pipedream?

The Slack app is the easiest and most convienent option to get started. It installs the official Pipedream bot into your Slack workspace with just a few clicks.

However, if you'd like to use your own bot registered with the Slack API, you can use the Slack Bot app instead.

The Slack Bot requires a bot token to allow your Pipedream workflows to authenticate as your bot. The extra set up steps allow you to list your custom bot on the Slack Marketplace, or install the bot on other workspaces as your bot's name instead of as Pipedream.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

bookmarks:writecalls:readcalls:writechannels:historychannels:readchannels:writednd:readdnd:writeemoji:readfiles:readgroups:historygroups:readgroups:writeim:historyim:readim:writelinks:readlinks:writempim:historympim:readmpim:writepins:readpins:writereactions:readreactions:writereminders:readreminders:writeremote_files:readremote_files:sharestars:readstars:writeteam:readusergroups:readusergroups:writeusers:readusers:read.emailusers:writechat:write:botchat:write:usercommandsfiles:write:userusers.profile:writeusers.profile:readsearch:read

Firebase Admin SDK Overview

With the Firebase Admin SDK API, you can build a variety of different
applications and tools. For example, you could build a tool to manage your
Firebase project's users, or a tool to monitor your Firebase project's data
usage. You could also build an app that helps you manage your Firebase
project's settings, or an app that helps you troubleshoot your Firebase
project's data.

Action Code

Action Authentication

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

  1. Enable the Cloud Firestore API on your Firebase account, and make sure you've created at least one collection in the database.

  2. Follow these instructions to generate a private key tied to your Firebase service account. This will generate a JSON file that contains the project ID, private key, and client email that you should paste below.

  3. When entering the private key, please add the full string included in the JSON file, from -----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY----- to -----END PRIVATE KEY-----, with all newline characters included.
