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.
AirtableairtableappThis component uses the Airtable app.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.

Trigger Authentication

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

Airtable uses simple token-based authentication. To generate or manage your API key, visit your account settings.

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.

Discord WebhookdiscordWebhookappThis component uses the Discord Webhook app.

Enter a simple message up to 2000 characters. This is the most commonly used field. However, it's optional if you pass embed content.

Thread IDthreadIDstring

If provided, the message will be posted to this thread


Overrides the current username of the webhook

Avatar URLavatarURLstring

If used, it overrides the default avatar of the webhook

Include link to workflowincludeSentViaPipedreamboolean

Defaults to true, includes a link to this workflow at the end of your Discord message.


Optionally pass an array of embed objects. E.g., {{ [{"description":"Use markdown including *Italic* **bold** __underline__ ~~strikeout~~ [hyperlink](https://google.com) `code`"}] }}. To pass data from another step, enter a reference using double curly brackets (e.g., {{steps.mydata.$return_value}}).
Tip: Construct the embeds array in a Node.js code step, return it, and then pass the return value to this step.

Action Authentication

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

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