Version:1.1.2
Key:rss-new-item-in-feed

RSS Overview

With the RSS API you have the power to create powerful tools and applications.
RSS is a great way to reliably subscribe to, track and build around your
favorite content sources. Here are some examples of things you can create
using the RSS API:

  • A personal news website to syndicate articles from multiple sources.
  • A custom feed reader to deliver timely notifications of updates and news.
  • A live editorial dashboard to track news, trends and public sentiment.
  • An automated “report bot” to aggregate and report on news topics.
  • A competitor tracking tool to stay on top of industry news.
  • A custom RSS-based search engine or RSS-supported deep learning engine.
  • A live events feed to notify users and followers of new developments.

Description:Uploads a UTF-8 string as a file on an SFTP server
Version:0.1.1
Key:sftp_password_based_auth-upload-file

SFTP (password-based auth) Overview

SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) is a network protocol that provides secure
file transfers over secure shell (SSH) connections. It is an extension of the
Secure Shell protocol, designed for secure file exchange between hosts. A user
can securely transfer files between systems without having to worry about
external threats, as the protocol is encrypted and authenticated.

With the SFTP API, you can build applications that securely transfer data, such
as files and documents, between two different systems. Some example
applications include:

  • Secure document sharing between two systems
  • Secure file synchronization between two systems
  • Secure backups of data over the network
  • Secure transfers of large files
  • Secure uploads and downloads of data
  • Media streaming between two systems

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
SFTP (password-based auth)sftp_password_based_authappThis component uses the SFTP (password-based auth) app.
datadatastring

A UTF-8 string to upload as a file on the remote server.

Remote PathremotePathstring

The path to the remote file to be created on the server.

Action Authentication

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

Below, enter the hostname of the SFTP server you'd like to connect to, your username, and the password you'd like to use to connect.

This app only supports password-based authentication, not authentication via private key. If you need to use a private key to connect to a host, please use the SFTP (key-based auth) app, instead.
