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:Emits an event each time an outbound message status event is received at the source url
Version:1.1.1
Key:bandwidth-new-ourgoing-sms

Bandwidth Overview

With the Bandwidth API, you can build a variety of applications and tools for
managing your communication needs. Here are a few examples of what you can
build:

  • A tool for monitoring your bandwidth usage
  • A tool for managing your contact lists
  • A tool for sending and receiving text messages
  • A tool for making and receiving phone calls
  • A tool for recording and storing call data

Trigger Code

const bandwidth = require('../../bandwidth.app');

module.exports = {
  name: 'New Outgoing SMS',
  description:
    'Emits an event each time an outbound message status event is received at the source url',
  key: 'bandwidth-new-ourgoing-sms',
  version: '1.1.1',
  props: {
    bandwidth,
    http: {
      type: '$.interface.http',
      customResponse: true,
    },
  },

  async run(event) {
    const messageBody = event.body[0];
    this.http.respond({
      status: 204,
    });

    if (messageBody.message.direction == 'out') {
      this.$emit(messageBody, {
        summary: messageBody.type,
        id: messageBody.message.id,
        ts: +new Date(messageBody.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
BandwidthbandwidthappThis component uses the Bandwidth app.
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

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

Bandwidth.com requires the user's username:password pair to be encoded as part of the header. (docs)
The accountId is used as part of the url to make API requests. Ex: https://dashboard.bandwidth.com/api/accounts/{accountId}/

Action

Description:Send a message to a public channel and customize the name and avatar of the bot that posts the message. See [postMessage](https://api.slack.com/methods/chat.postMessage) or [scheduleMessage](https://api.slack.com/methods/chat.scheduleMessage) docs here
Version:0.2.16

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.

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
SlackslackappThis component uses the Slack app.
Channel IDconversationstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Texttextstring

Text of the message to send (see Slack's formatting docs). This field is usually necessary, unless you're providing only attachments instead.

Send text as Slack mrkdwnmrkdwnboolean

TRUE by default. Pass FALSE to disable Slack markup parsing. See docs here

Bot Usernameusernamestring

Optionally customize your bot's user name (default is Pipedream). Must be used in conjunction with as_user set to false, otherwise ignored.

Icon (emoji)icon_emojistringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Icon (image URL)icon_urlstring

Optionally provide an image URL to use as the icon for this message. Must be used in conjunction with as_user set to false, otherwise ignored.

Send as Useras_userboolean

Optionally pass TRUE to post the message as the authed user, instead of as a bot. Defaults to FALSE.

Schedule messagepost_atinteger

Messages can only be scheduled up to 120 days in advance, and cannot be scheduled for the past. The datetime format should be a unix timestamp (e.g., 1650507616, see here for help with this format).

Include link to workflowinclude_sent_via_pipedream_flagboolean

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

Metadata Event Typemetadata_event_typestring

The name of the metadata event

Metadata Event Payloadmetadata_event_payloadstring

The payload of the metadata event. Must be a JSON string e.g. {"key": "value"}

Action 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
