On Tuesday, February 25, 2020 we will begin a phased roll out of the Pipelines technology for Quick Base customers. We will be turning the feature on for groups of customers over the coming weeks.
Since pipelines can work across Quick Base apps, you access Pipelines from the app bar.
If Pipelines has been turned on for your account and you cannot see it, please contact your account administrator to have them enable your access.
Yes, you can visit our community to learn how you can use Pipelines to generate template records and build trend reports. We'll be adding more examples throughout the year to give you more inspiration.
You will receive entitlements for both integration channels and a set number of step-runs based on your current subscription plan. Additional channels and step-runs are available for an added cost. Contact your account team to forecast your Pipelines usage and calculate your pricing. Your account team's contact information is available in the Summary tab of your Admin Console.
An integration channel is a set of pre-built functionality that allows Quick Base users to connect to third-party systems. Additionally, the webhooks channel allows you to connect with as many custom API endpoints as you need, and that is billed as a single channel. Our Quick Base channel is included and does not count towards your plan entitlements.
A step-run is an automated action within a designed pipeline that has been run. This includes triggers, actions, and API calls sent and received by the webhooks channel. Visit this page in our Pipelines Help documentation for more information on step-runs and how they are counted.
You can always see the number of step-runs remaining as well as the timing of your next reset date in the Quotas section of your "My Pipelines" page. You can also click "View Usage" to find a detailed report to see more information about your Pipelines activity.
You will receive email notifications at predefined thresholds as you begin to approach the entitlement limit of step-runs for your account. It is important that you work with your Quick Base account team to add additional step-runs to your plan in order to avoid any disruption in service. If you do reach your plan's entitlement limit without taking action, any actively running Pipelines will be allowed to complete, however no further pipelines will trigger until additional step-runs are added.
You can visit Channels page at any time to see a complete list of third-party solutions that are currently available to integrate with, as well as a list of upcoming channels that we are in the process of adding.
We will be continuously adding new channels to Pipelines so that you can integrate with the systems you need to run your business. If you don't see a channel for the specific solution you're interested in connecting with, please let us know by submitting your feedback to our UserVoice discussion forum.
The ODBC channel is currently in development, and we are excited to make this available to customers soon. This channel will allow you to connect with on-premises database systems.
Yes, you can build bi-directional integrations using Pipelines. For example, you could have one pipeline which pushes data from Quick Base to ServiceNow and a second pipeline that pushes data from ServiceNow back to Quick Base. You can also configure pipelines which connect two third-party systems without involving Quick Base apps at all.
Yes, Pipelines includes a webhooks channel which allows you to both send and receive API calls. This can be configured for any accessible API endpoint.
Yes, your currently configured Automations, Webhooks, and Actions will continue to work as usual. While we are excited about the large world of new possibilities offered by Pipelines, we will continue to communicate any changes in our support for existing capabilities well in advance.
