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


Page Data Pills and Conditionals in Workflow Apps

Users can now build dynamic pages in Workflow Apps by using data pills in their pages. Available data includes:

  1. User data (e.g. user name, user id, and email)
  2. Request data (e.g. request stage, request created by user, request data columns)
  3. Page data (e.g. any editable fields on the current page)

Data pills can be used to create conditional logic in pages just like with recipes. This enables dynamic functionality like:

  • Personalizing page messaging to the current user
  • Showing/hiding certain components based on page data (e.g. display an input field if other is selected in drop down)
  • Constructing dynamic URLs with embedded data from current page
  • Making page components required or readonly based on other answers within a page

On-prem Agent (OPA) logs now available in Logging Service

Users can now view OPA logs in Workato Logging Service. This addition makes it even easier to to search, audit, and troubleshoot specific automations utilizing OPA.

By default, this feature is disabled, but it can be enabled in workspaces with OPA and Logging Service via the on-prem group level settings.

Recipe Hyperlink in Manifest

In an effort to improve the Recipe Lifecycle Management experience, you can now navigate directly to changed recipes by clicking the recipe hyperlink in the manifest. This enhancement makes it quick and easy to review any recipe changes before deploying updates.


Microsoft Teams Workbot update – Tabs to be sunset

We're sunsetting Microsoft Teams tabs functionality in Workbot for Microsoft Teams. Microsoft's new Teams client doesn't support Adaptive Cards in tabs, rendering Workbot tabs inaccessible. No comparable replacement functionality is currently planned by Microsoft. Check Microsoft's new Teams client release schedule to keep updated on when the new client will be rolled out (currently planned for March 31).

We advise users to transition onboarding content to custom help messages or develop web-based tabs. Our planned schedule for this transition is as follows:

Jan, 31st - All users who have created a Workbot with active tabs and admins of their accounts will receive an email with the notice.

Feb, 5th - The tab trigger and action will be deprecated and will no longer be available in new recipes. Existing recipes will continue to work (in ‘classic’ client)

March, 31st - We will share further sunset schedule based on customer usage and Microsoft's release schedule.

‘Repeat While’ loops added for all workspaces

Users can now set any condition using the standard interface to decide if actions inside loop should be executed an additional time. Actions inside the loop will be executed at least one time. Applications include pagination, repeating a fixed number of times, and repeating until condition is met. Read more about Repeat While loops here.


Relation columns in Table Storage now included in import/export

Tables imported or exported through Recipe Lifecycle Management (RLCM) now include relational/linked column data if present.

Workflow Apps now includes ability to update a linked table within request

With the new table component you can display, create, and update records of a linked data table while working with a request. This unlocks use cases like SKU/inventory updates, expense reimbursements, and others where you need to create or update multiple items in a single request.

This page component is now available for all workspaces with Workflow Apps enabled.

Update to dashboard job totals

As part of a slow rollout, some customers will now see that the Dashboard counts jobs only once, by the last repeated job (e.g. a single job that has been repeated three times and failed each time will display as one failed job in the Dashboard). This behavior matches the Jobs History table, and should result in clearer analytics about the total successful and failed job counts for a given time period.

Once released widely to all existing workspaces, this will be the default behavior for all net new workspaces.

Embedded API Enhancements

Embedded API for Jobs: You can now view recipe job information in customer workspaces. Two new endpoints are now available for a specific recipe in a customer's account - one to retrieve a list of that recipe's aggregated job information and one to retrieve one single job's metadata information by its job handle.

Delete Projects: Delete projects from your workspace after deploying to your customer accounts. This action deletes a project and all of its contents (folders, recipes, connections, and workflow apps assets).

Delete Folders: Delete folders from customer workspaces. This action deletes a folder and all of its contents (recipes and connections).

Copy a Recipe: You can now copy an existing recipe in Workato based on its recipe ID.
