CyberArk Conjur Secrets Manager Support

Workato is thrilled to announce support for Cyberark's suite of secret management products: Conjur Cloud, Conjur Enterprise, and Conjur Open Source!
With these new secret managers users can reference stored secrets from Conjur directly rather than hardcoding credentials on new connections. Additional benefits of Conjur include:
  • On-prem secrets management: Connect Conjur to a running on-prem group (Conjur Enterprise / Conjur Open Source) for a full on-prem configuration
  • Credential rotation: Call the clear_cache API to retrieve the latest secret versions if credential rotation is enabled on Conjur

Audit log streaming retry

In the event Workato is unable to stream a log to the specified destination, Workato will retry sending the log repeatedly using an exponential backoff formula. To enable this, logs are kept in a persistent cache until:

  1. The audit log reaches its destination successfully, or
  2. Seven (7) days have passed.

Each retry attempt is logged in the Workato Logs service for visibility into the process.

Environment deployment permission update

Our latest update introduces a new Deployment permission for deploying project across environments. Effective December 12, 2023, users need this permission in both Development and target environments in order to deploy, replacing the Recipe lifecycle management requirement.

The Deployment permission is enabled for system roles and custom roles as follows:

  • Admin: Enabled
  • Analyst: Enabled
  • Operator: Disabled
  • Custom: Disabled until an admin manually enables it

This security enhancement provides better control over who can deploy to production or test environments by separating deployment permissions from recipe lifecycle management permissions.

Manage workspace users with the new User Audit API

The developer API just got more powerful with the addition of the user resource. This new set of endpoints allows you to perform the following actions:

  • Get details of the authenticated user
  • Get a list of members in your workspace
  • Get details about a user you specify
  • Get the role and privileges for a workspace user you specify

Have strict security and compliance policies? Restrict your collaborator’s access to their personal workspaces today!

Starting today, we're allowing our users to opt in remove access to their collaborator's personal Workato workspaces so that they'll only be able to build inside of pre-approved  workspace. For companies with strict security and compliance protocols, we highly recommend opting in to this security update as this leaves no action taken by your collaborators unlogged and unauditable. This change is compatible with both direct and embed customer accounts.

For maximum activity logging, we recommend setting up audit log streaming too!


Better Observability when Working Webhooks

Native webhook triggers configured for JSON payloads will now return a 400 bad request status code if the payload wasn't valid JSON. Additionally, to ensure consistency, starting from 6th November 2023, we will also start validating webhook triggers within the same workspace using the event name and webhook URL. If they have different configurations, we will prevent the recipe from starting.

These updates allow senders to see when events are not accepted so they can intervene and investigate immediately.

Logging Service Scoped to Project Permissions

Logging Service has been updated to allow user access based on project permissions. Now, users will only be able to see log entries for projects they have access to. This enhancement both makes logs easier to parse for users by making sure they only see relevant logs, and improves security by limiting access to logs based on user permissions.


Unveiling our Australia data center

Exciting news — we’ve launched an Australia data center to enhance data control and performance for our customers in the region. This expansion caters to our growing customer base in Australia and New Zealand, offering them the power to choose the hosting location for their Workato account, alongside our existing centers in the US, Europe, Singapore, and Japan.

Audit Log Streaming Notifications

With Audit Log Streaming Notifications, breakages in streaming connections will be detected and an email will be sent to users with troubleshooting steps. This allows users to immediately detect both voluntary and involuntary breakages so that it can be resolved in a timely manner.

More control on properties and lookup tables

Exciting news! We’ve introduced two enhanced security features: project-level properties and lookup tables access limit, now available to all users without any limitations or specific requirements!

Project-Level Properties: Located in the ‘Project settings’ tab, these properties are exclusive to recipes in the same project and are accessible to users with the appropriate permissions and visibility.

Lookup Tables: Users can now adjust the availability zone for lookup tables from ‘All projects’ to a specific project, making them accessible only to users with the right permissions and visibility to that project.

Quick Overview:

  • Open Access: Available to all, no additional requirements.
  • Enhanced Security: Better control and management of sensitive data.
  • API Accessibility: Both features are available via API.
