Integrate with Pipedream
Pipedream is a service similar to Zapier and IFTTT to help integrate systems without having to write code. In this article, we use an integration point provided by elmah.io and Pipedream called a trigger. A trigger is something that triggers an action in Pipedream. In the case of elmah.io, the trigger available is when new errors are logged to your log. Actions exist on the other side of the integration and tell Pipedream what to do every time a trigger is fired. This guide will show you how to set up the trigger. What action you want to execute when new errors are logged will depend on the tools and workflows used in your organization.
