UI Enhancements for API Collections and Endpoints

API collections and endpoints have been updated with the following UI enhancements:

  • Updated endpoint UI to include request & response schema, recipe actions, and key endpoint configuration that previously required opening the recipe separately to see
  • New endpoint settings tab to provide a persistent view of key endpoint configuration settings, without having to navigate into the 'edit endpoint' pop-up
  • Updated collections UI with new icons to easily distinguish API recipe collections and API proxy collection

Addition of RecipeOps trigger for alerting when API client exceeds policy limit

The new Recipe Operations triggers for policy quota and rate limit violations are instrumental in giving administrators visibility and the ability to proactively monitor their client's API usage. With these new triggers, administrators can now receive active alerts about violations, and move quickly to address.

Manage concurrency strategy with new API platform settings

With this new settings menu, you can control how to handle requests during periods of high concurrency - to either queue requests and set queue sizes, or reject requests when the limit is reached. Additionally, our concurrency documentation has been updated to provide more insight on how concurrency works, and how to use these new settings to manage your concurrency strategy.

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

With API Clients, users can now grant clients granular role and project-based app access. For greater security, view-once tokens are now available. Read this update’s documentation, or go to the revamped Workspace Access to start configuring.

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.
