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
JotformjotformappThis component uses the Jotform app.
FormformIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
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.

Trigger Authentication

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

  1. Get your Jotform API key. The API key must grant Pipedream Full Permissions. Pipedream requires this level of access to automatically register webhooks for your selected forms so you can trigger Pipedream workflows on form submissions.

apikey

  1. For the region field, enter api if none of the below apply.
  • If "Europe Datacenter" is selected in the "Data" section of your Jotform account, enter eu-api
  • If your account is HIPAA-compliant, enter hipaa-api
  • If you have an Enterprise Jotform account, enter the subdomain (if your Jotform URL is https://acmecompany.jotform.com, your subdomain is acmecompany)

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.

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 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:
