Keep up with the latest updates we’ve made in Workato.
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.
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.
Longer timeouts for API requests
You can now increase timeout durations—from the default 30 seconds, up to 240 seconds for the endpoints that need it. Just note that this works only for endpoints created on the API platform.
Better quality of service and stability with API throttling
API requests that exceed the workspace’s concurrency limit will no longer be rejected. Instead, when API requests spike, API throttling will come into play. This will delay the requests a little, depending on their size.
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.
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.
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.
Workato Event Streams (PubSub) message size now higher at 512KB
For instances that need a higher payload capacity, the message size for Workato Event Stream events has been increased to 512KB.

- IP Whitelisting
- Developer APIs to manage API clients
- Support for project-level lookup tables, project properties, API Platform collections and API Platform Clients
- Recipe Operator connector support for API Client tokens
