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 message is posted to one or more channels
Version:1.0.19
Key:slack-new-message-in-channels

Slack Overview

The Pipedream Slack app enables you to build event-driven workflows that interact with the Slack API. Once you authorize the Pipedream app's access to your workspace, you can use Pipedream workflows to perform common Slack actions or write your own code against the Slack API.

The Pipedream Slack app is not a typical app. You don't interact with it directly as a bot, and it doesn't add custom functionality to your workspace out of the box. It makes it easier to automate anything you'd typically use the Slack API for, using Pipedream workflows.

  • Automate posting updates to your team channels
  • Create a bot to answer common questions
  • Integrate with your existing tools and services
  • And much more!

Trigger 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:

About Slack

Slack is a channel-based messaging platform. With Slack, people can work together more effectively, connect all their software tools and services, and find the information they need to do their best work — all within a secure, enterprise-grade environment.

Action

Description:Track lets you record the actions your users perform (note requires userId or anonymousId). See the docs [here](https://segment.com/docs/connections/sources/catalog/libraries/server/http-api/#track)
Version:0.3.4
Key:segment-track

Segment Overview

The Segment API enables you to collect, manage, and route your customer analytics data to various tools for marketing, analytics, and data warehousing. By harnessing the Segment API on Pipedream, you can automate the ingestion and syncing of user events and properties to multiple destinations, allowing you to create seamless data pipelines without manual intervention. Pipedream's serverless platform empowers you to build custom workflows that react to events in real-time, enrich data, or trigger actions across your tech stack.

Action Code

import segmentApp from "../../segment.app.mjs";

export default {
  key: "segment-track",
  name: "Track actions your users perform",
  description: "Track lets you record the actions your users perform (note requires userId or anonymousId). See the docs [here](https://segment.com/docs/connections/sources/catalog/libraries/server/http-api/#track)",

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
SegmentsegmentAppappThis component uses the Segment app.
Anonymous IDanonymousIdstring

A pseudo-unique substitute for a User ID, for cases when you don't have an absolutely unique identifier. A User ID or an Anonymous ID is required.

Contextcontextobject

Dictionary of extra information that provides useful context about a message, but is not directly related to the API call like ip address or locale

Event Nameeventstring

Name of the action that a user has performed.

Integrationsintegrationsobject

Dictionary of destinations to either enable or disable

Event Propertiespropertiesobject

Free-form dictionary of properties of the event, like revenue

Timestamptimestampstring

Timestamp when the message itself took place, defaulted to the current time by the Segment Tracking API. It is an ISO-8601 date string. For example, 2022-04-08T17:32:11.318Z

User IDuserIdstring

Unique identifier for the user in your database., A User ID or an Anonymous ID is required.

Action Authentication

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

Segment's APIs are accessed programmatically using access tokens, as well as write keys.

Access Token

Create access tokens via the Access Management page in your account: https://app.segment.com/{your-workspace-name}/settings/access-management. See "Get a Token" for more details. Please note, that you must be on a Team or Business plan to create an access token.

Write Key

You will also need to find your write key, which is a unique identifier for your Source. To find a write key, you first need to create a non-Cloud Source such as a website, server, or mobile source. (Cloud-sources do not have write keys, as they use a token or key from your account with that service.) Then, in the Source, go to “Settings’, and then go to “API Keys”. See "Locating Your Write Key" for more details.
