Cloud Profiles for On-Prem Agents (OPA)

A single Workato on-prem agent (OPA) can connect to multiple on-prem applications. However, managing these require editing an on-prem agent config file. A cloud profile is a new way of setting a connection for on-prem agent directly in Workato. Connecting an agent to new resources is now much easier and doesn’t require direct access to the machine where the agent runs. This allows for a more centralized management of OPA agents.

More information can be found in the following docs:

Collaborator roles sync enhancement for SAML SSO

With this SAML SSO enhancement, you will now be able to manage the roles of your collaborators from your identity provider that you used to configure SAML SSO. This allows you to govern roles you already use without having to duplicate in Workato, allowing for a more efficient way of managing role changes across different workspaces.

What this means:

  • Admins no longer need to manage collaborator roles manually on the Workato platform
  • Users are able to provision / de-provision environment-specific access to your collaborators from their identity provider via custom / system roles.
  • Workato roles are automatically synced and updated from user profile data on your organization’s identity provider each time a user signs into Workato via SAML SSO

Impact on recipes with changed trigger minimized

Embedded partners managing recipe lifecycles will be happy to know that recipe restarts are now kept to the minimum. 

Restarts are now only required when there’s a change in the imported recipe’s app trigger, trigger input or trigger connection.

Simplified limits to webhook gateway

For easier understanding, our limits to webhook gateways have been simplified to:

  • Rate limits: 72,000 events per hour or 18,000 events in a burst
  • Byte limits: 30MB per minute or 30MB in a burst

See more details on rate limits and byte limits.


Easier troubleshooting with Workato Logs

Our new Logs feature captures every recipe’s log entries—even its repeated steps. 

Use it to search through log entries and troubleshoot your recipes with greater ease.

See more in the documentation on Workato logs, and contact your customer success manager to start logging.

Compare recipe versions with Recipe Diff

With the Recipe Diff feature, users can visually compare two versions of a recipe side by side—before choosing which to export.

This is handy for users who manage their team’s recipe development lifecycle.

To see how it works, check out Recipe Diff's documentation.

On-prem Agent (OPA) 2.13.0 release

  • Security: Java Runtime Environment upgraded to version 17.0.3
