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:Emit new event when a new commit is pushed to a branch
Version:0.1.1
Key:gitlab-new-commit

Gitlab Overview

Gitlab API allows developers to access the functionality of Gitlab. With the
Gitlab API, developers can integrate Gitlab with other applications, create
custom applications, or automate tasks.

Some examples of what you can build using the Gitlab API include:

  • Automate tasks such as creating and managing repositories
  • Integrate Gitlab with other applications such as your chat application
  • Create custom applications on top of Gitlab

Trigger Code

import gitlab from "../../gitlab.app.mjs";
import base from "../common/base.mjs";
import { eventTypes } from "../common/hook-events.mjs";

        }),
      ],
      optional: true,

      }

      // Gitlab "push events" are only provisioned with at most
      // 20 commit objects (which also lack information when compared
      // to the Commits API). The amount of new commits is specified
      // in a separate variable called `total_commits_count`, which
      // we'll use to keep track of the commits that we need to emit
      // downstream.
      // See https://gitlab.com/help/user/project/integrations/webhooks#push-events
      const { total_commits_count: totalCommitsCount } = event;

      const commits = await this.gitlab.listCommits(this.projectId, {
        refName,
        max: Math.min(50, totalCommitsCount),
      });

      // We need to collect all the relevant commits, sort
      // them in reverse order (since the Gitlab API sorts them
      // from most to least recent) and emit an event for each
      // one of them.
      commits.reverse().forEach((commit) => {
        const meta = this.generateMeta(commit);
        this.$emit(commit, meta);
      });
    },

};

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
GitlabgitlabappThis component uses the Gitlab app.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between executions.
N/Ahttp$.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

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

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

Action

Description:Send a simple message to a Discord channel
Version:1.0.1
Key:discord-send-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.

Action Code

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

export default {
  ...common,
  key: "discord-send-message",
  name: "Send Message",
  description: "Send a simple message to a Discord channel",
  version: "1.0.1",
  type: "action",
  async run({ $ }) {
    const {
      message,
      avatarURL,
      threadID,
      username,
      includeSentViaPipedream,
    } = this;

    try {
      const resp = await this.discord.sendMessage(this.channel, {
        avatar_url: avatarURL,
        username,
        content: includeSentViaPipedream
          ? this.appendPipedreamText(message)
          : message,
      }, {
        thread_id: threadID,
      });
      $.export("$summary", "Message sent successfully");
      return resp || {
        success: true,
      };
    } catch (err) {
      console.log(err);
      const unsentMessage = this.getUserInputProps();
      $.export("unsent", unsentMessage);
      throw err;
    }
  },
};

Action Configuration

Usernameusernamestring

Overrides the current username of the webhook

Avatar URLavatarURLstring

If used, it overrides the default avatar of the webhook. Note: Consecutive posts by the same username within 10 minutes of each other will not display updated avatar.

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