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 for each new incomplete task. [See the docs here](https://developer.todoist.com/sync/v8/#read-resources)

Trigger Authentication

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

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

Message Bodybodystring

Action Authentication

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

In Twilio, create an API key. There are two types of keys: Master and Standard. You'll need a Master key to interact with certain API endpoints, like /Accounts. If you don't need to interact with those endpoints, you can use a Standard key.

Once created, you'll receive an Sid and Secret here that you should enter in the corresponding fields below.

Then, in your Twilio Dashboard, you'll see your Account SID listed near the top. This is required for certain API operations. Enter that in the AccountSid field below.
