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 for each message posted to one or more channels in a Discord server
Version:1.0.1
Key:discord-new-message

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.

Trigger Code

import discord from "../../discord.app.mjs";

export default {
  type: "source",
  key: "discord-new-message",
  name: "New Message (Instant)",
  description: "Emit new event for each message posted to one or more channels in a Discord server",
  version: "1.0.1",
  dedupe: "unique",
  props: {
    discord,
    channels: {
      type: "$.discord.channel[]",
      appProp: "discord",
      label: "Channels",
      description: "Select the channel(s) you'd like to be notified for",
    },
    // eslint-disable-next-line pipedream/props-label,pipedream/props-description
    discordApphook: {
      type: "$.interface.apphook",
      appProp: "discord",
      async eventNames() {
        return this.channels || [];
      },
    },
  },
  async run(event) {
    if (event.guildID != this.discord.$auth.guild_id) {
      return;
    }
    this.$emit(event, {
      id: event.id,
    });
  },
};

Trigger 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:
