Keep up with the latest updates we’ve made in Workato.


What’s new with connectors: May edition

Retrieve trigger closure values
Trigger closure values can now be retrieved when you get recipe details, or list recipes belonging to user. For Embedded users, you can do the same when getting a recipe or listing recipes in a customer’s account. 

Two new bulk triggers, “Export new records” and “Export new/updated records”, were added. To better handle large data volumes, streaming is used in these triggers. We also fixed a bug found in the “Monitor changes in a record” trigger. Now, each trigger record has its own record ID, even if it was edited in bulk on Salesforce.

Our input fields and output datapills have been updated to be more readable. And that error message that showed up when records had no properties? That bug’s been fixed.

Quick Base
Real-time triggers now rely on the webhook event directly when retrieving new records, instead of by polling.

Five new actions are now ready for Box Sign users to automate document signing requests. Plus, a new “Monitor sign requests” trigger to pick up on completed, expired, declined or bounced sign requests.

You can now enjoy the freedom of custom fields when deduplicating records with the “Bulk import leads from file” action.

Google BigQuery
Our select and insert actions weren’t displaying datapills as expected whenever a BigQuery table had a record type column. Also, the input field saw error when the polling schedule was set to monthly. But we’ve solved both issues now. 

Scheduler by Workato
To our Scheduler trigger, we’ve introduced a new datapill, “last job time”.

Custom actions related to gift cards have been enabled, and custom OAuth profiles are now supported. We’re also gearing up for an upgrade to the latest API version, so we’ve added pagination support and deprecated some output fields.

Transactional RFC support has been introduced, so you can run multiple RFCs or BAPIs in a single transaction—useful for making sure your data on SAP stays consistent.


Wait for a user to act on Slack

Our Workbot for Slack connector now allows you to wait for a user to act on Slack before continuing your recipe. This means you no longer have to build multiple recipes, saving time and effort.


Delete messages on Microsoft Teams

We've introduced a new delete message action to our Workbot for Microsoft Teams connector. Use it to make your users' Microsoft Teams experience more dynamic.


What’s new with connectors: April edition

Gmail and Google Calendar
Google has service accounts for apps to access Google APIs programmatically via OAuth 2.0. Use service accounts to make sure connections run even when permissions for individual users change.

SFTP/On-prem files/Sharepoint
Enjoy the option of storing empty files in your file storage solutions, now that file contents are optional for these connectors.

We had to fix a couple of issues to improve the experience with authentication, input and output schema. And in more exciting news, there's a new set of endpoints that lets you read and manage your Workday Drive documents in your recipes.

Now you can get more specific with your JSON filters when using the search records action, by using symbols like “=”, “>” or “<”.

Manage your Sharepoint files and folders in your recipes, with new actions that allow you to copy file, move file and rename file or folder.  

SendGrid deprecated some endpoints like create/update recipient, search recipient and add recipient to list, so we’ve removed these actions to avoid any “403 forbidden” errors.

Beefed up with 5 new actions, you can now update deals, update persons, get deal-related products, create notes and create activities.

Support for the Evernote connector has been removed, since our customers have moved on to other note taking apps, and its usage has been low.

Workday’s multi-instance custom objects now supported

Our Workday connector now supports creating, updating, and retrieving not only single-instance custom objects but multi-instance ones too! This means you can attach more than one instance to a parent object, which is handy when you need to add, say, an employee's multiple COVID-19 vaccination records. 

Oh, and we've made these actions much more user-friendly too.

SAP connector is now SAP certified

Our SAP certification demonstrates that our connector is reliable, secure and efficient for our customers.

This gives organizations and their IT teams confidence that our integration does not pose risks of errors, data inconsistencies, nor security breaches.


Configuration wizard now available for custom actions

With a new configuration wizard, creating custom actions for connectors is now easier. It guides users through the setup—from testing endpoints, and generating schemas, to customizing error messages.


What’s new with connectors: March edition

Picklist errors fixed
We had a little hiccup recently with the way we were handling dependent picklists. It caused 'Something went wrong' errors to pop up across a bunch of our connectors. But don't worry—we've already fixed the bug for all our connectors. 

We now offer a SOQL Filter query that lets you limit the platform events you receive and trigger the right workflows. So, you can focus on what matters most without getting bogged down by a flood of events. 

Our NetSuite connector just got a major upgrade to version 2022_2 of Suitetalk. That means you'll have access to all kinds of new fields and standard objects that come with the latest version. Plus, the connector is now officially "Built for NetSuite" Certified for NetSuite's upcoming 2023.1 release. 

After many iterations to create the right experience, we're thrilled to announce that you can now download and upload attachments to ServiceNow.

SAP Concur
We just upgraded this to use V4 APIs, and have replaced some triggers and actions with new ones to help streamline your workflow. Follow our handy migration guide to make the transition nice and easy. 

SAP SuccessFactors
Our triggers for new and updated objects couldn't handle future-dated changes. But we've now added these fields called 'fromDate' and 'toDate' to both the regular triggers and the batch ones—so you can easily filter for changes.

We've just released batch triggers for some Shopify objects, including customer, order, draft order, and product. So, if you're using any of these objects, take advantage of these batch triggers to design more efficient recipes for processing large volumes. 

This now comes with streaming capability, which means users can upload and download huge amounts of data in OneDrive. It's a game changer for businesses that rely on Microsoft apps, and automate data-heavy tasks with Workato. 

Our Workato Webhooks Connector now supports query parameters for incoming webhooks. This means you can now include custom query parameters in your webhook URLs, which will help you get even more specific with your data.

What’s new with connectors: February edition

We have updated the field labels for this connector to be more consistent with field labels in NetSuite’s UI, so it’s easier to use.

We’ve introduced a new bulk trigger “Export new/updated issue” for higher throughput and performance when working with a large number of issues.

We have a new Workday action that allows you to list custom object definitions and define them as you like.

A new, simpler set of triggers and actions have been released, following HubSpot’s latest API version.

Microsoft Sharepoint/Dynamics 365
We’ve added a new type of authentication on top of OAuth: Client Credentials. This is useful for users who want to interact with Workato as an app, not an individual user.

Microsoft Dynamics 365
We’ve introduced a new bulk trigger, “Export new/updated records”. It can process an unlimited number of CSV records.

You can now create tables, get tables, create worksheets, and delete rows in your recipes.
