Keep up with the latest updates we’ve made in Workato.
API Proxy now available for API Platform
Users can now create API proxy collections that serve as an intermediary between an API client and an existing API server.
Rather than clients sending requests directly to your API, they can send requests to a secure proxy endpoint configured in Workato. This extends the benefits of Workato's modern API gateway to your existing API servers, including secure authentication protocols, monitoring, and access control features.
API Proxy is a lightweight service built for handling high volume with low latency. Highlights include:
- Simple configuration via Workato UI
- High capacity (upwards of 10k RPS)
- Low latency of 5ms
- No concurrency limit
This feature is available to all API Platform customers.
Longer timeouts for API requests
You can now increase timeout durations—from the default 30 seconds, up to 240 seconds for the endpoints that need it. Just note that this works only for endpoints created on the API platform.
Better quality of service and stability with API throttling
API requests that exceed the workspace’s concurrency limit will no longer be rejected. Instead, when API requests spike, API throttling will come into play. This will delay the requests a little, depending on their size.
API Clients enhanced
We introduced API Clients for Developer APIs this January, which allows users to grant clients granular role and project-based app access. It’s now enhanced with:
- IP Whitelisting
- Developer APIs to manage API clients
- Support for project-level lookup tables, project properties, API Platform collections and API Platform Clients
- Recipe Operator connector support for API Client tokens
See API Clients’ documentation for more.
Configure client access with greater security
Recipe Trigger Reset for Developer & Embedded API
The enhanced recipe API allows resetting one or more recipes either manually on an ad-hoc basis or through automations. Resetting a trigger makes it forget the data that it has picked up in the past so it will pick up the same historical data again. This is a great way to do a full data refresh for data replication, master data management, or reverse ETL type of use case. Click to learn more about reset API.
Basic auth support for the API Platform
The API platform now supports authentication via basic auth, in addition to Oauth 2.o, JSON Web Tokens, and more.
Simplify API authentication with OpenID Connect
Authenticate to Workato APIs with OpenID Connect to centralize permission management in your Identity Platform.
Reduce API latency with zero-logging
Reduce the latency of API requests by disabling logging for an API recipe.
