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.

Ghost.org (Content API) Overview

of applications and tools. Some example applications that can be built using
the Ghost.org API include:

  • A content management system (CMS) for publishing content
  • A forum or discussion board
  • A blogroll or list of blogs
  • A social media aggregator
  • A news feed or news aggregator
  • An e-commerce store

import common from "../common/timer-based.mjs";

export default {
  ...common,
  type: "source",
  key: "ghost_org_content_api-new-author",

        summary: `Author ID ${resource.id}`,
      };
    },
  },
};

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.

Trigger Authentication

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

The Content API Key can be obtained by creating a new Custom Integration under the Integrations screen in Ghost Admin. There are details on connecting to the API in the Client Library page for Content API.

  • 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!

Icon (emoji)icon_emojistring

Optionally provide an emoji to use as the icon for this message. E.g., :fire: Overrides icon_url. Must be used in conjunction with as_user set to false, otherwise ignored.

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.

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).

Metadata Event Payloadmetadata_event_payloadstring

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

Tip: Construct your blocks in a code step, return them as an array, and then pass the return value to this step.

Notification Texttextstring

Optionally provide a string for Slack to display as the new message notification (if you do not provide this, notification will be blank).

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
