Keep up with the latest updates we’ve made in Workato.
New RecipeOps trigger
Our RecipeOps connector has a new trigger, “On-prem agent disconnected”. It monitors your chosen on-prem group for agency connectivity issues, so when a network outage is detected or an agent process is killed, your recipe moves into action.
What’s new with connectors: May edition
Retrieve trigger closure values
Trigger closure values can now be retrieved when you get recipe details, or list recipes belonging to user. For Embedded users, you can do the same when getting a recipe or listing recipes in a customer’s account.
Two new bulk triggers, “Export new records” and “Export new/updated records”, were added. To better handle large data volumes, streaming is used in these triggers. We also fixed a bug found in the “Monitor changes in a record” trigger. Now, each trigger record has its own record ID, even if it was edited in bulk on Salesforce.
Our input fields and output datapills have been updated to be more readable. And that error message that showed up when records had no properties? That bug’s been fixed.
Real-time triggers now rely on the webhook event directly when retrieving new records, instead of by polling.
Five new actions are now ready for Box Sign users to automate document signing requests. Plus, a new “Monitor sign requests” trigger to pick up on completed, expired, declined or bounced sign requests.
You can now enjoy the freedom of custom fields when deduplicating records with the “Bulk import leads from file” action.
Our select and insert actions weren’t displaying datapills as expected whenever a BigQuery table had a record type column. Also, the input field saw error when the polling schedule was set to monthly. But we’ve solved both issues now.
Scheduler by Workato
To our Scheduler trigger, we’ve introduced a new datapill, “last job time”.
Custom actions related to gift cards have been enabled, and custom OAuth profiles are now supported. We’re also gearing up for an upgrade to the latest API version, so we’ve added pagination support and deprecated some output fields.
Transactional RFC support has been introduced, so you can run multiple RFCs or BAPIs in a single transaction—useful for making sure your data on SAP stays consistent.
New API call for secrets management
This API call clears the secrets management cache to retrieve the latest available credentials from your external secrets manager, whether that’s AWS Secrets Manager or Hashicorp Vault. This allows you to update your secrets regularly with no disruptions to active recipes.
Use Hashicorp Vault with OPAs
For tighter security, we’ve extended support for secrets manager, Hashicorp Vault, to our on-prem agents (OPA) and on-prem groups (OPA).
On-prem Agent (OPA) 2.19.0 release
We’ve improved the activation flow for any new on-prem agents you create. Other updates:
- Security: trust certificates are now issued by default, by Let’s Encrypt
- Security: several libraries were upgraded with OWASP’s recommendations
- System: agent performance data is now automatically sent to Workato for analysis and improvements
- System: cloud logging feature no longer requires added configuration
- MS SQL: support for useFmtOnly connection property added
- MySQL: support for year date type added
- Kafka: validation of SASL configuration improved
See OPA Release Notes in docs.
Wait for a user to act on Slack
Our Workbot for Slack connector now allows you to wait for a user to act on Slack before continuing your recipe. This means you no longer have to build multiple recipes, saving time and effort.
Delete messages on Microsoft Teams
We've introduced a new delete message action to our Workbot for Microsoft Teams connector. Use it to make your users' Microsoft Teams experience more dynamic.
Create magic with OpenAI and automations
Always looking for innovative ways to use ChatGPT in our work, we're thrilled to introduce OpenAI as one of our connectors!
This means you can now power all kinds of workflows with OpenAI’s AI models. We’re starting off with 5 new actions that you can use right away—and we’ll be adding more soon—including the ability to use the same model that powers the conversational ChatGPT.
Safely retrieve secrets and API tokens, with HashiCorp Vault
We’re excited to share that Workato now supports HashiCorp Vault secrets engine, a security feature many of our customers have been asking for.
HashiCorp Vault is an external secrets manager that lets you store and retrieve passwords and API tokens in a secure way. And trust us, this comes in super handy when you create or update a connection on Workato.
Publish and consume PubSub topics with APIs
We've just introduced APIs for PubSub. This means you can have 3rd party applications directly publish to and consume events from a PubSub topic, making it easier than ever to keep everything in sync.
