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:Exposes an HTTP API for scheduling messages to be emitted at a future time
Version:0.3.1
Key:pipedream-new-scheduled-tasks

Pipedream Overview

Pipedream is an API that allows you to build applications that can connect to
various data sources and processes them in real-time. You can use Pipedream to
create applications that can perform ETL (Extract, Transform, and Load) tasks,
as well as to create data-driven workflows.

Some examples of applications you can build using the Pipedream API include:

  • An application that can extract data from a database, transform it, and then
    load it into another database.
  • An application that can monitor a data source for changes, and then trigger a
    workflow in response to those changes.
  • An application that can poll an API for new data, and then process that data
    in real-time.

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
PipedreampipedreamappThis component uses the Pipedream app.
Secretsecretstring

Optional but recommended: if you enter a secret here, you must pass this value in the x-pd-secret HTTP header when making requests

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 executions.

Trigger Authentication

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

Action

Description:Send a simple or structured message (using embeds) to a Discord channel
Version:1.0.1
Key:discord-send-message-advanced

Discord Overview

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

Action Code

import { ConfigurationError } from "@pipedream/platform";
import common from "../common/common.mjs";

export default {
  ...common,

        });
      } else {
        content = this.appendPipedreamText(message ?? "");
      }
    }

  },
};

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.

LabelPropTypeDescription
DiscorddiscordappThis component uses the Discord app.
channelchannel$.discord.channel
Messagemessagestring

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

Usernameusernamestring

Overrides the current username of the webhook

Avatar URLavatarURLstring

If used, it overrides the default avatar of the webhook. Note: Consecutive posts by the same username within 10 minutes of each other will not display updated avatar.

Include link to workflowincludeSentViaPipedreamboolean

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

Embedsembedsany

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 uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Discord account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Discord 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 API.

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