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 on each created task.
Version:0.0.1
Key:awork-new-task

awork Overview

The awork API allows developers to access awork.io content and build
applications on top of the awork platform. With the awork API, you can:

  • Access awork.io content, including articles, photos, and videos
  • Build applications on top of the awork platform
  • Integrate awork.io content into your own website or application

Trigger Code

import common from "../common/common.mjs";

export default {
  ...common,
  name: "New Task (Instant)",
  version: "0.0.1",
  key: "awork-new-task",
  description: "Emit new event on each created task.",
  type: "source",
  dedupe: "unique",
  methods: {
    ...common.methods,
    getWebhookEventType() {
      return "task_added";
    },
    async deploy() {
      const tasks = await this.awork.getTasks({
        params: {
          pageSize: 10,
          orderby: "CreatedOn DESC",
        },
      });

      tasks.reverse().forEach(this.emitEvent);
    },
    emitEvent(body) {
      const data = body?.entity ?? body;

      this.$emit(data, {
        id: data.id,
        summary: `New task created with id ${data.id}`,
        ts: Date.parse(data.createdOn),
      });
    },
  },
};

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
aworkaworkappThis component uses the awork app.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.
N/Ahttp$.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

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

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