Trigger Authentication

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

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

ZohoCreator.form.CREATEZohoCreator.report.CREATEZohoCreator.report.READZohoCreator.report.UPDATEZohoCreator.report.DELETEZohoCreator.meta.form.READZohoCreator.meta.application.READZohoCreator.dashboard.READZohoCreator.bulk.CREATEZohoCreator.bulk.READ

Action

Description:Send a simple message to a Discord channel
Version:0.3.1
Key:discord_webhook-send-message

Discord Webhook Overview

With Discord's Webhook API, you can create applications that send messages to
Discord channels automatically. For example, you could create a bot that sends
a message to a channel every time a new blog post is published, or a message to
a channel when someone joins your Discord server.

Here are some ideas for what you could build using the Discord Webhook API:

  • A bot that sends a message to a channel when a new blog post is published
  • A bot that sends a message to a channel when someone joins your Discord
    server
  • A bot that sends a message to a channel when a new product is added to your
    online store

Action Code
