Keep up with the latest updates we’ve made in Workato.
Introducing Public Key Rotation via API
Our commitment to security is unwavering. In this exciting release, we're introducing an API endpoint that allows customers to seamlessly rotate public keys used for JWT tokens.
Key Features & Changes:
- Public Key Rotation via API: Enhance your security posture by rotating your RSA Public Key directly through our new API, without the need to communicate them in plain text.
- Retrieve Your Workato Embedded Vendor ID: In the API response, you can easily retrieve the
vendor_id, which provides the essential Workato Embedded Vendor ID for JWT.
- Updated Terminology: We're continuously improving clarity! The term previously known as the OEM Vendor API Key has now been renamed to "Workato Embedded Vendor ID" in our documentation.
New Customization Features for Workflow Apps
Our Workflow Apps just got more customizable with a number of new enhancements including:
Markup support - Customize text components with multi-line rich text created with simple markup syntax.
Embedding settings - Control where and how the apps portal can be embedded into other applications.
Worfklow Apps Connector - The workflow apps connector has been updated to support dynamically selecting group ID, allowing users to share the same task logic between groups.
Column customization - Control which data table columns are shown to which users, ensuring users are only presented with relevant information.
