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.

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.
