Pastebin

Overview

The Pastebin plugin provides capabilities to pull a paste ID, an identifier for a text paste, from the Pastebin.com website.

Functionality

The Pastebin plugin provides a node to fetch a paste using a paste ID or pastebin.com URL.

Flow Node

Adds Pastebin.com text to the message using the paste ID or by gleaning the paste ID from the URL supplied in the Paste ID property.
Property
Description

Name

The display name of the node within the flows.


Paste ID

This field defines the location from the message, flow, global, or JavaScript expression to use as the data source for the paste ID. The paste ID can be specified directly. If the source is a pastebin.com URL, the paste ID will be determined from there. Additionally, the node context can also be changed. The following contexts are supported.

  • msg.: This selects part of the incoming message as the source of the data. This is typical choice.
  • flow.: This selects part of the flow context’s saved data as the source. This information is shared with only the nodes on a given tab.
  • global.: This selects part of the global context’s saved data as the source. This information is shared by all nodes regardless of tab.
  • J: expression: JSONata expression language to perform query and transform operations on the payload.
