I was asked to check if there was zapier integration (automation for small tasks, https://zapier.com/) for NextCloud and I couldn’t find anything useful on that topic, other than there is none. Is there anything planned in this direction? I’ve already contacted zapier and asked if they were planning to include NC in their apps list, this is how it went:
I’m working with moco at the moment (which is already in zapier) and I would like to see two things: 1) When I create an invoice in moco I would want it to be copied to a NextCloud directory, e.g. “moco_invoices” 2) When I create a new project in moco I would want zapier to create a directory in NextCloud called “P000xx name of project” where xx is the id of the project.
At least the second directory is shared and members of the team have access to it, so everybody sees the new project/files. There is an API for that (https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/12/developer_manual/client_apis/WebDAV/index.html) which should be able to take care of those tasks. Which is the way to go here, how likely is it that this will be integrated at some point?
Thanks for reaching out to us! That sounds like a pretty awesome workflow and app. I’ve gone ahead and added your vote to a standing request for this integration. While I can’t say for certain when this will get added I can promise that we’ll let you know as soon as it is!
I also recommend that you reach out to NextCloud’s team about your interest, as it’s typically the partners that create the integrations on our platform - that’s the fastest way to make it happen.
Even though this sounds rather generic, maybe there’s a way to get this done in the future? If there’s no integration planned, is there another way to achieve what I want? (i.e. copy files/create directories via script)
