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 subtask added to a project.
Version:1.0.1
Key:asana-new-subtask

Asana Overview

Using the Asana API, you can build software that integrates with Asana to help
your team track their work. For example, you could build a tool to help your
team plan their work for the week, or a reporting tool to help you track
progress on a project.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

Twilio Overview

With the Twilio API, you can build telephone applications that make and receive
phone calls, as well astext messaging applications that send and receive text
messages.

Some examples of applications you could build include:

  • A phone call application that allows you to make and receive phone calls over
    the internet
  • A text messaging application that allows you to send and receive text
    messages over the internet
  • A voicemail application that allows you to leave and receive voicemails over
    the internet

Action Code

import { phone } from "phone";
import twilio from "../../twilio.app.mjs";

      ],
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    // Parse the given number into its E.164 equivalent
    // The E.164 phone number will be included in the first element
    // of the array, but the array will be empty if parsing fails.
    // See https://www.npmjs.com/package/phone
    const toParsed = phone(this.to);
    if (!toParsed || !toParsed.phoneNumber) {
      throw new Error(`Phone number ${this.to} couldn't be parsed as a valid number.`);
    }

    const data = {
      to: toParsed.phoneNumber,
      from: this.from,
      body: this.body,
    };

    const resp = await this.twilio.getClient().messages.create(data);
    $.export("$summary", `Successfully sent a new SMS, "${messageToString(resp)}"`);
    return resp;
  },
};

Action Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI.

LabelPropTypeDescription
TwiliotwilioappThis component uses the Twilio app.
FromfromstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Totostring

The destination phone number in E.164 format. Format with a + and country code (e.g., +16175551212).

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.

To connect your Twilio account to Pipedream,

First, create an API key in Twilio.

  • 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.

After creating your key, you'll see fields for Sid and Secret. Enter those in the fields below.
