- Connections to your organization’s apps
- Usage policies and allocate resources like recipes and tasks
See more about Automation HQ in this blog post.
Marketo flow steps setup now easier
Self Service Flow Steps is a new Marketo feature. With it, users can build reusable custom steps that call out to other apps with customer data.
While it can involve a lot of custom code to set up, Workato users can now create these flow steps the easier way: with a recipe.
Building connectors now easier with OpenAPI Specifications
Save weeks of development work when you use OpenAPI Specifications (OAS) to build your own custom Workato connectors.
Users have the option of creating a connector from an OAS document, or a sample code.
See more in the OAS generation documentation.
Custom OAuth profiles for Embedded partners
Embedded partners can now create custom apps (on supported connectors) and connect them to Workato.
This gives partners control over the app’s branding, permission scopes, and OAuth profile.
See the list of supported connectors and other details.
On-prem Agent (OPA) 2.13.0 release
- Security: Java Runtime Environment upgraded to version 17.0.3
- Linux: RPM and DEB packages added
- Shutdown: New shutdown procedure deployed. Agent awaits OS signals, and tries to gracefully finish all running queries and terminate the agent process. Default shutdown timeout is 300 seconds, but this can be customized
- Cloud logging: now enabled by default, agent logs will be sent to Workato for improvements and fixes
- HTTP response compression: now enabled by default, this may increase CPU consumption for better communication throughput
- Command line: ‘mgmt-listen’ option added to expose technical endpoint, useful for health checks when running OPA inside a containerized environment.
- Command line: Undocumented ‘/status’ endpoint deprecated
- Security: libraries with vulnerabilities have been upgraded
- Custom HTTP SSL options: internal agent communication no longer affected
- Kafka: Avro and Schema Registry support added
See OPA Release Notes in docs.
New Platform APIs for Embedded partners
Embedded partners can now create, update and remove connectors shared with their customers—before pushing these updates into customers’ accounts. No installation needed. Read more on these four new APIs.
Concurrency usage now visible on API platform dashboard
API platform users can now monitor average and peak concurrency usage in real time. Go to API platform to see your dashboard.
Job IDs format updated
For stronger security and improved scalability, all job IDs will be updated to a string format (e.g. j-KGAKfhsz-GYoLeD4Q), in place of numbers—on 1 September 2022.
If you wish to assess the impact of this migration, your customer success manager is ready to support.
On-prem Agent (OPA) 2.12.2 release
- On-prem files: added actions to delete files and folders
- MS SQL: fixed the delimiter issue for bulk load action
- Active Directory: fixed error when using a custom attribute as a search filter
Pending job queue transparency
The job summary view now provides full visibility into the queue of pending jobs for the recipes. In a quick glance you can get an overview of the following:
- Number of jobs waiting to be processed in the queue
- Estimated time for clearing the jobs in queue
Now you can check the queue size, and processing times to identify potential bottlenecks, or opportunities for optimization.
